    Here it is, the first DSi CFW!

    Video by Alex S (with TWiLight Menu++ (previously known as DSiMenu++) installed):


    Video by @Apache Thunder (When RocketLauncher was planned for a release. With WarioWare Touched (DSiWare version) installed.):


    (NOTE: Since hiyaCFW has been released a few days ago (as of posting this), and no official thread has been made, I decided to go and make it, despite not making the actual patches for it. :P )

    With this CFW, you can run custom DSiWare, alongside region free and 3DS-exclusive DSiWare (WarioWare Touched), on your SD card, via NAND to SD redirection!
    You can also run blocked flashcards (such as R4 Ultra).

    Full guide (hiyaCFW is optional)

    FAQs
    Q: Can I use a custom splash for hiyaCFW?
    A: Yes you can. Place it at "sd:/hiya/" and name them "splashtop.bmp" and "splashbottom.bmp". Make sure they're actually saved as .bmp files, with the size of 256x192, with no color space info, and is 16-bit (A1 R5 G5 B5, or X1 R5 G5 B5).

    Will NAND to SD redirection (Is it wrong to call that emunand?) ever be available on 4gb+ sd cards?

    Oh wow, thanks! I guess we'll start doing Week 1 Installer badges Soon™️.
    Now how do we install custom and 3DS-exclusive DSiWare with this? :unsure:

    Glad this got an official post.
    It looks like https://www.dsiguide.me doesn't have the HiyaCFW helper portion added yet, will have to work on that. Kind of annoying that cfw guide has ads on it...

    Don't worry, there's still dsi.cfw.guide but you're going to have to update yours

    Not yet, Unlaunch has just been released recently.

    If you install Unlaunch using TempNand the bricking does not occur. I have tested this on both of my DSis.

    It still uses RocketLauncher, but it also works with Unlauncher, and RL will likely not be released, since Unlaunch is out.

    Ehh I just decided to stop being lazy and look myself. Nevermind.
