It is possible. It's just that nobody cares. The homebrew community doesn't benefit from having access to the DSi hardware, so there's not really any effort going into hacking the DSi.

It has already been hacked BTW (not to the extent that regular users would find useful, but still).

Are you sure nobody cares ? It just seems to me more like a lame excuse to avoid saying " we can't, Nintendo IS smarter then us ".
Sure some exploit have been found, but it's a long way to go.
And why shouldn't people care anyway ? Sure it might seem that all you get is a camera and a better screen, that we really shouldn't bother with.
But in the end there is extra memory , slightly faster processor ( or higher clock speed if you wanna put it that way ), and an SD card slot !
Can you imagine the possibilities ?
As of now, some excellent homebrew or emulators could really improve a lot just by having more ram and more speed, let alone an SD card slot for conveniently store all your files and easily transfer them to the PC ( there is a fantastic MSX emulator that could really use a tiny boost in speed to be just perfect for example, and SNES emulation would be much better as well with more memory and speed )!
Keep dreaming that ' nobody cares '.
I care, a lot of people actually care, but still it ain't an easy task.
People these days hack everything just for the hack of it ( no pun intended ), so if there was an easy way to hack the DSi, the benefit would be pretty huge as well, but the fact that we still can't do that has nothing to do with hackers being busy and not really care.
I'm sure somebody tried hard already but the result aren't quite satisfying.
So please, QUIT SAYING NOBODY CARES !

Well it's not the hacking community who will hack it, it's the flash cart teams. And there's a profit to be made despite whatever misgivings you may have about the DSi (sales are actually very high).
So yeah, it seems that the flash cart teams couldn't figure out how to bypass the anti-piracy, and that's why there are no DSi-mode flash carts. If no one cared about the DSi, then they wouldn't have even bothered to release the semi-DSi flash carts.
Is is possible for a hacker to crack the DSi AP? Maybe, but we don't even know if they tried.

That's crap from a child.

Of course people care.

There are some brilliant DSiWare games out there.

Have a look at Metacritic. If you know what that is...

http://www.metacritic.com/games/ds

There are a lot of DSiWare games in the top ratings.

It's simply not possible rigt now. That's it. Get over it.

Hacking DSi mode, and running pirated DSiware, are 2 different things entirely. Even if they get DSi only ROMs to run, DSiware is a whole 'nother obstacle to tackle.

The point is, as far as DSi cart games go, there really isn't anything to get excited about at all, if we are even to the point of running commercial DSi ROMs

@yuyuyup: Great, go ahead and do that. Maybe you'll see how much effort it takes, an you'll realize how much YOU really don't give a shit. Is that ironic? you be the judge.

I DO give a shit cause I wanna take pix with the god damn camera without the god damn light/shutter sound. I'll hax the DSI and then travel to the house of every single hacker in the world and beat the shit out of them ala "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back."

The pirate market would probably be an ironic place for a conspiracy, but with the flashcart market at stake, those who dedicate serious manpower and resources to professionally hack consoles aren't gonna touch the idea of sending a bogus firmware update to the DSi that will allow booting software off the SD slot without any need for people buying flashcarts. Remember that to a market piracy is theft, wether you're robbing the official company or the pirates themselves.

A lot of people care if the DSi was fully hacked :|
Homebrew apps/games using the camera (motion sensing too

Free DSi Ware (a lot of the prices are rip offs

This thread sums up the reason the DSi hasn't been hacked fully, people dont know that it has been hacked to us the DSi wireless chip in DSi mode. However, most aren't aware of the exploit and therefore it isn't expanded on

Anyone who MATTERS knows of the exploit.
People who can't do squat with it are the ones who want a hack.

It's being worked on. DSi ware has been dumped and there's a homebrew channel now. Just remember how many years it took to hack the PS3, dump the GBC bios, of decrypt Neogeo games.

Great. You want kill small developer groups who launch games for DSiWare. Just great

And for the information of the guy who created this thread to play DS Games with DSi features. Actually, we can run homebrew in DSi Mode: http://davejmurphy.com/dsi-mode-homebrew-anyone/

But there isn´t interest.

If they can afford Nintendo's Licensing fees for the dev kits, they're not 'small developer group(s)'.

There IS interest, but that exploit (and the previous one) require you to buy a retail game that not many people have interest in. And until that recent WiFi exploit was uncovered, the injected code had to be very small. The injected code is STILL relatively small, but significantly bigger than it was before.

Got a link for this?
I fear the flood of noob posts when doing a google search for "DSi Homebrew Channel".

IMO the DSi games are the biggest shovelware nonsense. There may be one or two decent games, but if I knew how to hack it, I wouldn't waste my time.

If anything, I hope they hack the XBOX 360 Arcade so it can be played on the PC. It would be nice to play the new Castlevania without having to buy a console.

Think of a bunch of words that'll get me suspended... then add a 'you' at the end and pretend I said them.


And what exactly have YOU done, other than be useless and call people idiots?
