    Edit: Because the PSP is easier to hack than the DSi.

    Well maybe it's possible hardware-wise, but the DSi is proving to be extremely tough to crack.
    No flash cart as of now has successfully hacked DSi mode, and until that happens, there's no point in hoping for a DSi GBA emulator.

    For more information, see Narin's post in this topic: http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=123221

    That may very well be so, but there isn't even a good way to hack the DSi yet. Therefore, it's impossible, as of right now. It'd be pretty easy to find info on it if there was an easy way to hack it and run more than 5-6KB of code.

    You're also forgetting that the PSP is a fuckload more powerful than the DS and DSi.

    Exactly. Saying "it's possible on X so why can't Y do it" is NOT logic. It's asking for something unreasonable.

    And we still haven't cracked DSi mode yet, so we're still limited to exactly what the DS could do. Not that it makes a difference, since the DSi still isn't powerful enough to emulate the GBA in software at any reasonable speed.
