    Somehow, I kinda doubt that libfat would work on DSi SD-slots. (DLDI)
    I wonder if my homebrew would be a good CFW for DSi.

    Don't get too excited about running code from the SD slot, SD access is slow, microSD and Memory Stick Duo are much faster.
    Team 17 were right, and it was Shigeru Miyamoto himself who insisted on the SD slot. [​IMG]

    By the way, buffer overflows...isn't that basically what the Twilight Hack does? (goes crazy when horses name is too long)
    Nintendo sure did a great job fixing that exploit. [​IMG]

    What?? The hack is running off the SD card?? If it is I'm sure Nintendo will try to update the firmware.

    Not necessarily; since the SD Card Slot is built on the SDHC spec, it should be pretty fast access.

    And yes that's exactly what happened with the Twilight hack [​IMG]

    I thought SDHC only allowed for higher capacity. [​IMG]
    But yeah, generally SD cards are pretty slow, but is there any confirmation of what the DSi supports in terms of SDHC?

    Yeah, Nintendo seem to take the easy fixes here.
    Twilight Hack? Let's not fix the actual exploit, let's just delete the save files!
    Flash carts? We'll just change the code a little so they don't load properly!

    Pretty fast hacking. I wonder when yasu actually STARTED to try and hack it, and of course succeed.

    Wow, he borrowed a friend's DSi, and then flashed it with a custom firmware!? Talk about a "I hope this works..." moment - I'd be scared of turning that DSi into a brick should the firmware not work.

    Na, didn't he have to open up the DSi to flash it? If he messed it up it couldn't he just put back the old firmware he backed up?

    Well he didn't flash it per se,
    he useed the TIFF hack, like the Wii's twilight hack, or the PS3 Hack, or the early PSP hack.
    The image causes the buffer overflow, allowing unsigned code (The homebrew) to be run.
    I am pretty sure he did not open it up.

    But, yasu is yasu. His friend knows he is a uber elit3 hAX0r and can hax shit very quickly.
    But i would never let one of my friends try and hack a DSi i just bought.

    Again, the PS3 has been hacked a long time ago. What you're referring to "hacked" is bootlegging games.

    This guy is a great hacker so... I bet he can do what looply did with the firmware but with the DSi. Maybe DS Lite users could run it [​IMG] . He can run homebrew so he can run firmware dumpers.

    Really NOT going to hold my breath on this one!

    a 3 second video means nothing it could actually just be just that a VIDEO!

    remembering also that the DSi updates via WiFi ...update usually = DEAD Hack/Exploit!

    We need to see it running proper unsigned code ... ie homebrew and then backups/dumps/roms whatever you want to call them that's what would make me trust and believe the DSi has been cracked/opened!

    The video to me just looks like an edited screen saver looping video or the DSi has an editable screen saver or able to use an image for a screen saver!


    Your all wetting yourself over NOTHING SPECIAL!

    When it runs commercial backups then you can break out the champagne or do back flips whatever floats your boat!

    So, theoritical we would be able to play ROMs without a flashcard. We just do it like this:

    1. We'll wait for a custom firmware from YASU, which can play ROMs.
    2. We'll buy a SD Card, put all needed data for the custom firmware + ROMs on the DS card and start playing.
