    Hello GbaTemp,

    This is my first thread (and also my first question I ask here :P ) and my question is: Is there a way that I can install DsiWare on my Nintendo DSi now that the DSiShop is closed?



    With kind regards,

    DsiBoy

    well that was fast
    BTW, how can you delete a DSiWare if you don't have the Data Management option available and you haven't accessed the Shop at all?

    I'm no Pro in DSi Homebrew I'm actually a complete novice but I would have to say would have to have some kind of Homebrew exploit and do something with the nand that's all I can say

    Will Homebrew on a flashcard (r4) also work?

    Please wait some more if you arent a dev. All public methods have a serious brick chance if you make a mistake.

    no, the flipnote exploit just involves some files on your sd card, running flipnote studio, doing a couple of other steps and thats it. There are other exploit games, but those might have to be installed with the flipnote exploit.

    Is there also a method without the need of having Flipnote?

    There are a few exploits available, but a lot of the save exploits require downgrading (or direct NAND injection) to install. A fairly promising looking one is DSibrowserhax, but it has not been released yet.

    How is that possible? So you know that there is a browserhax but it isn't released?

    It is listed on DSiGuide.me, but there is no further information on it at this point in time.

    Nobody knows if there will be an exploit into the DSi Browser, si your best bet is to find another DSi with flipnote build in.

    I have another dsi that I don't use anymore with Flipnote, can I use that DSi and transfer all the games to the DSi I use?

    You cannot, you need hardmod in order to transfer SRLs.

    I may sound like a noob but what are SRLs? I asked if it is possible to transfer DSiWare from my DSi WITH Flipnote to my DSI WITHOUT Flipnote.

    Basically, what he is saying is, you need a way to access the NAND of the target DSi to transfer anything, which requires a hardmod if you don't have an exploit of some sort on the target DSi.
