    Yes I have read that everything setup properly I just don't get any changes in my lights that indicate loading and just goes to a white screen. Sometimes I get a loading screen but then it goes to white as well.

    Yep, HiyaCFW is required. This tool cannot write to a NAND, only to a SD card.

    I recommend you to create a new NAND backup and do the Hiya CFW installation again.

    Requirements
    • A NAND backup taken from your device, with the NO$GBA Footer
      • fwTool 2.0 will create this footer automatically when it makes a backup
      • You should already have this backup from the previous section
    • HiyaCFW Helper
      • Windows users may use the .EXE
      • Users of other operating systems may use the .py (requires Python 2)
      • Windows users will additionally need V2.0.1001 of OSFMount (Download links are slightly below main download button)
    Instructions
    1. Insert your SD card into your PC
    2. Copy the contents of the HiyaCFW Helper .zip file to a folder on your PC
    3. Navigate to the extracted folder
    4. Open HiyaCFW Helper as admin
      • This can be done on Windows by right-clicking -> Run as administrator
    5. Click the ... button in the NAND file with No$GBA footer box
    6. Navigate to your NAND backup, and click Open
    7. If you wish to install TWiLight Menu++ as a DSi Menu replacement, check the Install latest TWiLight Menu++ on latest firmware box
    8. Press Start
    9. In the new pop-up window, navigate to your SD card, and press OK
      • The process may take several minutes
      • When the HiyaCFW Helper window says Done!, the process is complete
    10. Close HiyaCFW Helper
    11. Unplug your SD card, and insert it in your DSi
    12. Power on your console
      • Unlaunch’s GUI should appear
    13. Navigate to OPTIONS, and press (A)
    14. Press (A) to configure a default software to boot in to when no button is held
    15. Navigate to HIYACFW, and press (A)
    16. Navigate to SAVE & EXIT, and press (A)
    17. Power off your console, and turn it back on
      • HiyaCFW’s settings screen should appear
    18. Change the settings to your liking, and press (START) to continue
    Your system will now boot from the SD card instead of the internal NAND.

    If you want to boot in to the internal storage, you may configure LAUNCHER to a hotkey in a similar manner to the one you just did for HiyaCFW.

    Easy. You first installed Unlaunch, then made a NAND backup. Are you screwed? Sort of, but I recommend to download the latest system menu version from "NUS Downloader" and replace the the TMD on your SDNAND. If you can't, tell me on what version you are and I'll send you a working TMD instead.


    Remember, Unlaunch makes use of an exploit where the system first loads the TMD. HiyaCFW can't read those TMDs.

    I think it would be better if you send me a working tmd (you seem to know ALOT more about this then I do ) The version I am on is 1.4.5U

    Sheesh! I'm sorry, totally forgot about it!
    I'll send you the TMD today, but it will take some time because I don't have access to my laptop yet.

    Make sure you get your DSiWare from that ISO site. Also, make sure these aren't regular DS roms, it's DSiWare-only.
