    In data management there is an option for dsiware to copy them to the sd card. What is that for?

    I believe it's just in case if your NAND has no more space left, because DSiWare titles can´t be played through SDCard

    Nope, just like 3DS games they are tethered to the system.

    Yup, pretty much.
    All forms of piracy either need a CFW or you need to buy a Sky3DS (which only works with 3DS games, not DSi)
    You can get a flashcart that works with DS games, but still not DSiware.
    R4 does not work with DSiware games. As well R4 does not work the 3DS.

    You cannot play DSiWare with only an R4.

    If you have TLoZ four swords on your 3DS or a DSi you can have DSiWarehax for free (like me:tpi:)

    Is there any other dsiware that will work with the firm downgrade?
    Like can any dsiware be used or it is only the ones that are listed in the downgrade tutorial?

    There are 4 games with a usable exploit. If there were more, they would have been added to the guide
    The better question is, do you already have a hacked system? DSiware downgrade still requires a second system that has already been hacked to install the exploit.
