    Here it is, the first DSi CFW!

    Video by Alex S (with SRLoader 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 (from stock to HiyaCFW)

    Credits
    • @Apache Thunder, @nocash123, StuckPixel, @shutterbug2000, and @Gericom.
    • @Drenn: .bmp loading code from GameYob, for custom splash screens.
    • me: Logo graphic, and settings screen.
    • @jerbear64: For providing the EUR and JPN 1.4 Launcher .tmds.
    • WinterMute/devkitPro: For the majority of the base code like nds-bootloader which this loader uses.
    FAQs
    Q: Can I use a custom splash for HiyaCFW?
    A: Yes you can, but only top splashes work for now. Place it at "sd:/hiya/" and name it splashtop.bmp. Make sure it's actually saved as a .bmp file, with the size of 256x192, with no color space info, and is 16-bit (A1 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.

    Is there an Unlauncher thread here?

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