    I'm wondering if the information about DSi region (USA/E/J) is stored in WiFi module.
    If so: Could I swap USA WiFi to my European DSi console to make USA Korg-10 work on it?
    If not: Where is region information stored? Which part of DSi has saved region info and BIOS and software version.

    (I know that DS Lite WiFi module has stored default language setting and firmware data.)

    I cant test DSi module because I haven't got USA or J console but I ordered faulty American DSi for tests. (Wainting for delivery [​IMG]

    If anybody on this forum have knowlege about what I'm asking please post here.

    It's stored on the internal NAND. DSi security has not been hacked enough to modify NAND contents (at least, publicly) so you can't do anything.

    I do not want to modify NAND data. I wish to know if the WiFi module has BIOS data (as DS Lite) and if so Is there information about region for DSi.

    The DSi works in a completely different way from "normal" DSs, it's more similar to a Wii.
    Region information is stored on the internal NAND, not in the WiFi module.
