    Interesting. I guess that calculation is not the same as the DSi key, though. I would be surprised if the key's calculation method was the same as the Wii's. I doubt it though. What lead me to think it was in the system is because the key is recognized across every system made, and if it verifies the key, it would allow it, and since there is one for each console specifically and one for all of them, the key would be in the system to verify it.

    Got my copy of Sudoku in time.

    Hopefully this will lead to ability to run DSiWare titles.

    It is the exact same algorithm used for any system that uses AES128 encryption (or is it AES256? I'm pretty sure its AES of some sort - Used in Wii and DSi. PS3 uses different encryption algorithm I belive - ECDSA or something like that). That doesn't help at all though. The reason the PS3 keys could be calculated was Sony made a monumental screw up in implementing that algorithm. Nintendo seem to have done it properly (which I believe isn't hard if you read the specs before implementing it), which makes it impossible to calculate by mathematical means. The Wii's private key has never been calculated/found, and it is very unlikely the DSi's will be either.

    The private key isn't needed on each system, because that's the whole point of public-private key crypto. Stuff is signed with private key, then decrypted and verified with the public key. I have no idea how this works, but it does. And it means that the only copy of the private key is in Nintendo HQ, probably only ever been seen by a few people.

    Does this mean they have more DSiWare hacks planned?

    So true but I patched my game nonetheless I didn't want to miss the upportunity but now that I think about it... Do you guys know what kind of data was sent? Don't tell me there is the Nintendo Club ID or the visa numbers or something private? I'm kinda scared now.

    We don't have the Wii's "master" key, only the decryption key.

    Most likely to try and stop Nintendo from seeing the actual hack as much as possible. Just a guess of course.

    Basically, as of writing time, Sudokuhax is busted. If you weren't one of the 234 people who got it, then you don't have DSiBrew.

    Actually, if you have had that version, It is still possible for those that have bought it in the past, to redownload it if they have lost every local copy they ever had.

    Even though the title isn't listed in the main shop, if a person has bought it, it will be listed in their "Titles you downloaded" under the setting part of the shop channel, and it can be downloaded from there.

    As of me writing this post, there are 268 people that have sudokuhax for sure. THere may still be more people out there that have purchased that game at some point.

    You're being a bit TOO paranoid. That info is stored with Nintendo with your DSi Shop Account details.

    i got the game but still haven't tried it, just waiting for something better. I think there are much more people who think just like me and they are just waiting with the game purchased [​IMG]
