    Hi there,
    In preparation for the release of RocketLauncher and hiyaCFW, I'm interested in setting up a different entrypoint on my DSi. I already got Sudokuhax and a fully downgraded system settings+whitelist, but Sudokuhax taking longer to launch the exploit is a bit inconvenient. How would I go about installing 4SwordsHax instead, for that ~1 sec boot time?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes i do but my DSi is dead because of a mistake when hardmodding besides that you only need to replace the save on the nand and it will work.

    I see. Could I use the System Setting save copying or do I need to extract my NAND.bin?

    Edit it in the Nand.bin.

    I see. Could I install the exploit onto a 3DS (A 'safer playing field' of sorts) then copy the exploited save out of the TWLNAND and into the NAND.bin?

    Alternatively, is there any way to write a single file into the NAND as opposed to flashing the whole NAND again? My DSi (used to?) have a strange error where it'd randomly power off, and I've gotten lucky with the NAND rewrites up until now but I don't want to risk it more.

    You need to rewrite the nand.

    I see. I guess I'll see how I go. How about the 'work on a 3DS then transfer file to DSi' part?

    You can wait until a nand file explorer is released if you really want to.

    Hey, could you send me the exploitable version of SUDOKU? Looks like freeShop version doesn't work. Or anyone has a tutorial to inject the save like it was done in 2011? I have already downgraded my system.

    Sorry, don't want to go posting warez on GBATemp. As for the tutorial, I remember having to extract the save file with the system settings and uploading a file on HackMii, then copying back the file it spat out. No idea how to do that nowadays.

    Yeah, I'll wait it out. It's really a convenience thing at the moment.

    Just posting an update on this, I managed to install 4SwordsHax onto my DSi via NAND injection, but I'm getting an error.

    When I boot into SpinalCord's old Homebrew Channel app, everything seems to be working until I scroll a fair bit, then it crashes.
    Whenever I use the devkitpro hbmenu, it flat out refuses to boot.

    Both of these menus work perfectly fine when I use Sudokuhax however. Am I missing something with 4SwordsHax?

    I saw a lot of important changes from @Apache Thunder in 4swordshax repo, but no compiled binaries of these changes, if someone can compile the binaries with those changes would be great.
