Lack of interest meant smaller teams, smaller teams means more work for lack of team members, more work means more time. There's a lot of factors required for expoits, hacking, and using those to make a cfw, which all require time and people to test.

Low demand really. When R4 cards appeared for the DS, everyone thought that was already enough and everyone else shifted their attention, while there were really few people actually working in a custom firmware. The flashcards were just enough by the eyes of most, while the most "hardcore" users actually wanted CFW, but most couldn't work in one, so it was mostly left behind until recently.

The DSi was definitely a popular console, but not too popular, and the hacking scenes back then weren't nearly as big as they are now. Most of them had their focuses on the DS, as it was still very popular, and flash carts were enough for people at that time, because they did almost everything that people needed them to, in loading games, etc. Nobody really payed a lot of attention to the consoles hacking scene, and the most it got were some flash carts, etc.

    @ZeroT21, Definitely illegal. You cannot let somebody access your account to get your save.

    @ZeroT21, That's like giving somebody the keys to your mansion. If you give your Switch to somebody, then they can do whatever to your account without you knowing.
