    im not sure if a physical copy exists but i dont think it will work even if you do have it. Because the game has to be installed onto your device's nand for it to work.. dsiware titles can write onto nand and do its "witchcraft" bypassing the 3DS's security..

    edit: thinking about it, it might work if we could inject a hacked save to the DS cartridge but sadly i dont think such game in physical form exist..

    I'm not even sure if they're physical copies of the 4 Dsiware games.
    Even if there were, I'm sure that they wouldn't have read/write access to NAND like the digital versions. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    as others are saying there are no physical copy's of the games . . . so . . . no . . . you need dsiware. the flaw you are trying to exploit is only possible because the game installs on the system nand itself

    Considering the list of dsiware has been updated and there are physical copies of these games, anyone have a solid answer?

    There was only one dsi flash cart and was blocked in 2.x so this injection tactic wouldn't work

    You can not use a physical copy. The exploit is that DSiWare is installed to NAND and thus has access to NAND.
