    Anybody knows if there is a known way to dump the DS demos from the nintendo channel ?
    I guess it would be either getting them from the nand or via wifi (presumably with a special wifi card?)

    Also, i don't even have the nintendo channel installed (can't check right now because i don't have my wii by me)
    so can someone please tell me if the channel requires you to download the demo each time you want to transfer it to your DS?
    So, if you
    1. go to the nintendo channel and download a ds demo, and then
    2. transfer it to your ds, then
    3. get out to the system menu, and then
    4, go back to the nintendo channel,

    do you have to download the demo again in this step? Even if you skip point 2. ?
    (if the game gets stored in the NAND, we could dump it, but not if it gets erased)

    I would like to play dragon ball ds which is presumably out in Japan, but i would have to either
    change my wii region completely with anyregion changer, and/or install the japanese nintendo channel. (anyone tried this?)

    If the anyregion changer mode is required, it would be really troublesome, hence the need to dump the games =D

    I think you'd have no choice but to use the AnyRegion Changer if you had a USA Wii and if you already have the Nintendo Channel, all you'd need to do is change the Country Code to #1 on the Changer so it's Shop, Forecast, News, etc. oriented for Japan Region.

    I would also like to know if there's a method for dumping DS Demos, since I own a Japanese Wii. There's also a couple of Demos I'd want to dump on my own before some games actually release. [​IMG]

    Downloads and then Hosts the game.

    That must mean it's definitely possible. =o

    I'm doing a NAND Dump for the hell of it, but I'm assuming the Nintendo Channel already deleted the Download. When I clicked the DB Demo, it seemed like it was much faster than when I first started trying to Download and host Wii as a Server for the Demo.

    Update: Nada. =\

    Gambia, The
    I also have a Japanese Wii.
    Here are some clearer pics I made with my capture device:

    The demo is up until September 16th.
    Wish there was a demo for Pocket Monsters Platinum, though...

    Looks pretty good! =P

    I lack a 802.11 Wireless Device not counting my Two DS'/es. I knew it was something to do with that. I've been tempted to get a Wireless Card because of one of my Friend's developments that he's made with an Application on the DS.

    I really hope there's some sort of Tool for Flash Carts, or a Wi-Fi to FTP Transfer like the Wi-Fi Backup Tool someday.

    From the site http://www.greenchu.de/dsdl/ :

    This site shows off my very own collection of official DS Download Play games, demos, apps, etc.
    Only games from official events, the Nintendo Channel (Wii), and the in-store DS Download Service are displayed.
    These games are not available for download here.

    Technically yes, because they're copyrighted. On the other hand, some websites host them because they assume that Nintendo wants them to be spread around; after all, they're demo's!

    Hey!

    Thanks for the answers. I have a ipw2200 card which i *think* supports sniffing. I will try to capture the data as described in http://wiki.akkit.org/DSDemoCapture (which just says: capture the data >_

    Thanks.

    Would you be able to capture the download to the ds? if you have wifi, try something like wireshark in promiscuous mode.

    Well, I've gotten WireShark working on my Mac.

    I see the Wii on 802.11 WLAN, It's just that it doesn't capture all of the Data on the Program. Or I just don't have enough to capture it with having 2 Routers going on at once crapping out the Signal. I'm also not very familiar with the program, or what data I need to capture.

    I'll have to try it again another time and turn the Routers off while hosting a Demo. =\

    The E3 2005 demos were dumped with just a packet sniffer.

    Try turning ON promiscuous mode in the capture options. Then you could hopefully see the wii's traffic while the DS is downloading the game.
