    Lovingly hand crafted "universal" Flipnote exploit for use with US, EU & JPN consoles.

    These files are not to be used by "guide" sites and people shouldn't be downgrading their consoles anyway.

    Neither of the guides have covered doing this for a while, since like you've mentioned before, TWLNF is unsafe.

    Is there a particular reason this shouldn't be used on guides, though?

    If I don't have to hit paste over 100 times I'm not interested.

    Wheee, worked for my JPN DSi on 1.4.0. Currently backing up my NAND. Thanks a ton! :)

    Thank you and @fincs for this,it was a missing piece of the puzzle; but tutorials are going to be written anyway, better accept it now than doing another witch hunt over repos, again.:wacko:
    For example, how are we supposed to install Unlaunch without writing it to the nand?

    Edit: also, ugopwn eur/jap was released yesterday on discord... I see that the methods of triggering the exploit are not identical, but this doesn't sound right ..

    Well Unlaunch's installer does the job just fine. If twlnf caused breakage it's not the most difficult task in the world to fix, you just need to delete every DSiWare you've installed with it and that (sometimes) seems to fix it.

    As for the guide restriction it's already proven to cause a lot of headache. Many people have come to Discord having issues with ugopwn, so I have a link Flipnote Lenny pinned in the assistance channel at this point. Works every time.
    The restriction has done nothing but make things more cumbersome for end users, for seemingly no reason other than "the guide sites are bad and I don't like them". It's virtually part of the guide anyways since people come to the Discord from the guide when they find out that ugopwn doesn't work for them.

    Most, if not all of the guide sites are simply leeching off other people's hard work in my opinion.

    Don't know about anyone else but I find it really irritating when the things I make get hosted on other people's sites with no credit surrounded by adverts, poorly written "tutorials" and requests for donations because of the thousands of hours put into the work. As far as I can tell those thousands of hours were put in by people other than the ones requesting donations.

    There's more I want to do with this which will hopefully mean that the included instructions are all the guide anyone should need.

    I can agree with donations, and I can definitely agree about some of the guides being poorly written. The first one (dsiguide.me) was quite poorly written, and upon initial release it was nothing but a giant placeholder with information about exploits that weren't even confirmed yet (like "dsibrowserhax"). Nowadays it's a page about manually editing a NAND backup and reflashing it with fwtool to install Unlaunch, then dumps you at dsi.cfw.guide (since its HiyaCFW instructions weren't great so they're just redirecting to that one now)

    However, dsi.cfw.guide is a derivative of one of my older guides for the system, so I have push access to it. How do you propose we improve the guide?
    There are some things I can't do as I don't own the cfw.guide domain, like removing adverts (emiyl has them there to pay for the domain), but I can absolutely make changes such as:
    • Removing my donation link (I can't control emiyl's, though) because like I said I agree with that point
      I can also remove the donation notices from the guide itself, and a disclaimer on the donate page that we didn't do much work besides put the guide itself together and that it's better to donate to the devs instead
    • Crediting developers- we do have a few things like ugopwn repacked, but that's so things are "plug-and-play" and users just have to drop the files on their SD card. With the way Flipnote Lenny is packaged, this definitely wouldn't be necessary
      We have some other things repacked that come with some .py files that do most of the grunt work of preparing HiyaCFW and grabbing a console ID from a DSiWare. I can separate these out if needed, some of them are residual from older versions of the guide anyways
      I can also add developers of any software and exploits used to the credits page
      If Flipnote Lenny was to be added to the guide, it would absolutely be a direct link to your page- and it would be even if this conversation wasn't happening, since the page explicitly states to do so
    I also see that the version of fwtool distributed with the Flipnote Lenny generates a NO$ footer automatically. This would mean that if Flipnote Lenny were added to the guide, I could easily drop TWLNF from the guide, since that's what we're currently using for that. It's also still used to dump NAND contents to SD (as that's needed for HiyaCFW to work) but now that fuse-3ds supports DSi NANDs I can add that instead, which completely drops TWLNF

    I understand you're continuing development of this, but in the meantime I'd like to make things as easy on the end-user as possible.- and Flipnote Lenny being on the guide instead of ugopwn would absolutely help achieve this. That's why I made this guide to begin with- I wasn't happy with any of the others, they'd use unsafe methods, they were convoluted, they didn't explain things well, they were outdated, and the list goes on.

    @jerbear64 I wouldn't remove the donation links at all. A well written guide is quite the achievement and given people the option to thank you is only good and proper. Also, another idea. Why not add instructions on how to create a 2gb volume on bigger SD cards? Most people may only have bigger ones at hand and may find this useful.

    I've added a section to the guide that will render this unnecessary.
    As HiyaCFW can autoboot to a title, we can instruct it to autoboot to SRLoader. SRLoader doesn't care about the SD card size, or DSiWare block limit. It does add a slightly increased startup time for DSiWare, but I think that's a fair compromise until HiyaCFW has the ability of patching it out (if that's even possible). I have yet to add a notice about this to the HiyaCFW page, but it is in the FAQ.

    I also haven't used Windows regularly in years, so I'd have to spin up a VM and familiarize myself with the Windows partition manager before adding instructions on how to do anything on that front.

    As for donations- I have a change that I'm about to push, that removes the donation headers from every page, but leaves the donation page itself intact. The donation page has a disclaimer saying that it might be wise to donate to the exploit developers instead.

    Next order of business is removing TWLNF from the guide. I already have replaced it with OSFMount and fuse-3ds for SDNAND creation locally, but it hasn't been pushed yet. I've also started cleaning out the repacked files, separating the Python files from them and removing some extra dependencies.

    @jerbear64 Brilliant. Did not know that SRLoader could do that. Thank you for the info!

    Awesome! This can be really useful for newbies. Why you don't want guide sites using this?

    It's because the site may contain steps for downgrading, or the site may contain ads, or some other reason WinterMute has. :P
