    Sorry if this is been asked already but I couldn't find a recent answer.

    I have a Sudokuhaxed DSiXL on system menu 1.4.1 U, and I'm very happy with it.
    Recently I came to possess some Nintendo points and I would like to spend it on the DSiWare shop, however I need to perform an update ( I believe it will bring me to 1.4.4 ) in order to access the shop.
    While I already updated my AK2i loader ( so I'm save on the flashcart front ), it's not clear whether the 1.4.4 update will disable my Sudokuhax.
    Does anybody know what happens if I perform the update, please ?

    Why would you use the sudokuhax if u have an ak2i?
    But it removes it

    The fact that you asked that question, makes me wonder how reliable your answer might be.

    well let me say this if you want your DSi ware and can spend $170 get a 3ds and update it but don't get rid of your DSi the acekard no longer works on the latest 3ds fw....FOREVER

    Um ok.
    But why? sudokuhax runs homebrew code only, not roms obviously so whats the point of keeping it if your acekard can do the exact same thing?
    And obviously nintendo has updated and fixed this exploit...

    Sudokuhax can run things in DSi-mode, which means it can run emulators and such faster than the AK2i, right?

    it will not disable it. what got blocked was the ability to copy the hax back into nand. so if you update, you can never copy it back on, update it, etc. if it gets corrupted or something along those lines then it will be lost forever.

    And the winner is........Another World, as usual !
    Thanks man, I appreciate it.
    So the update won't remove the hack itself but will prevent me from install it ever again in case something goes wrong.
    That's exactly the answer that what I was looking for.

    As for the others...
    Ehm....There are a few emulators and homebrew out there that run in DSi mode with the sudokuhax.
    Slightly faster, NesDS for example has additional scaling option when detects DSi precessor, the ability to run the Homebrew Launcher from the DSi menu, and last but non least the ability to put all that stuff ( hundreds of roms ) on a plain SD card and run it from the SD slot in the DSi.
    Surely you can do all those things with the AK2i, but I like my Sudokuhax and I'd like to keep it that way.
    I know it's not much and the DSi homebrew scene is severely lacking but hey, let's enjoy what we have !

    Don't forget ichichfly's GBA emulator! It's wonderful in DS Mode, but it's an orgy on a stick in DSi Mode.

    I got an idea, get the dsi homebrew channel that spinal code made, put it on sudohax and then update so you can load your homebrew without needing to change the hack

    my XL is on 1.4.4u, and can confirm that the sudokuhax works on it. just cant remove it from my DS or itll be disabled, like AW said.

    cool that nesDS has a scaling option only for DSi mode, i didnt know that.

    You don't get it. The hack is that DSi homebrew is loaded from the SD card, and the file can only have a certain name.
    It doesn't matter what firmware you're on, the hack still does that; the NDS itself can be changed at any time.

    The "change" would be that you can no longer copy Sudokuhax back onto the internal memory. I don't know if that's true for the 3-4 other hacks tho.

    I know this is a semi-hellish bump but it's for a good reason.
    Does *anyone* still have sudokuhax on their European/Australian DSi (not 3ds) by any chance? Or just the old version without hax?

    (this is the original dsi sudokuhax thread from 2011 for those wondering)

    The very first information in this video is "Going to start SRLoader, via sudokuhax". Here's the original GBATemp thread, where it also says "You'll need a DSi exploit, such as sudokuhax, to run SRLoader.".

    Here is the link to a thread that documents how to inject sudokuhax into any DSi with a NAND mod.
