    I'd like to know what I'll get if I install it on my system and advantages it gives my DSi.

    Well, there are a couple of advantages actually that may please you:
    • You're safe from a brick since you're using your SD card as a redNAND (redirection NAND)
    • You can have custom applications on your home menu
    • There's more access in arm7 (can allow things like running flashcards or using nitrohax as a action replay for you retail cart games)
    • Custom splash screen (like luma3DS)
    • You can use autoboot functions (from powering on your system and hold a button to launch anything)
    • SDNAND is decrypted so if you wanted to port a dsiware or a homebrew application, it can be done easily
    • You can replace your home menu with DSiMenu++
    • Run region-free dsiware applications
    There's probably a lot more but hiyaCFW makes things much easier due to RSA patching and other magic.

    No problem. The about this, is that things are basically evolving for better experience (thus, dsimenu++)
