    The Nintendo DSi has somehow returned to the hacking scene, and as of now, no proper tools exist that can install DSiWare.
    This short tutorial will show you how to install DSiWare on the System Menu without DSiMenu++.

    Take a note that some applications require a save file to work. No save file means the save file got "corrupted".

    Installing DSiWare (JeffRuLz's method) !!RECOMMENDED!!

    Great guide!
    One thing I can say about those games that boot into a white screen or won't load because of corrupt data, is that they require their own public.sav and won't boot without one, the easiest way I've been able to get one is by using DSiMenu++ to force-generate a sav file:
    Generating a usuable public.sav

    Hang on, let me try that out! Maybe I can host Save Files on Mega.nz, because that is allowed!

    Go for it! I haven't had any issues when creating saves this way, but oh gosh if you're going to do every game...well, good luck!

    @Hoppy , I tested it with Four Swords, it first said the save file was corrupted (it deleted itself) and now I can play Four Swords!
    Thank you so much your this tip!

    Edit: Still a problem, the rom & save file got deleted after running the game :/
