new dsi firmware, time to bin all your dsi cards

  • mrhappycloud Thursday, July 30, 2009 10:27 PM Reply
    So is the firmware in North America yet? If not then is it ok to update the firmware without it blocking the flash cards.

    twick, its a little more than that in this case.

    dsi flashcarts worked by forging the headers of certain game cards to fool the dsi into thinking it had an original game inserted, it was blatantly obvious right from the start that it was a loophole that was going to be closed, most were expecting it to be closed with the launch of the dsivideo service or the launch of the dsi vc, instead they have done it now with the facebook app and camera update.

    the hacked firmware claims may well prove true but if the firmware was that easy to hack why wasnt it already done to allow normal ds carts to work or to allow access to dsi mode? it wasnt done because its not that easy so claims to be hacking a new firmware that even changes the way it validates game cards is not going to be a walk in the park and since the dsi is region locked a hacked eu firmware is of no use to an american dsi user.

    someone will crack the new validation system and once that is done the upgradeable carts will be able to be brought back to life but even that could take months (or days, no one knows). it does sound like the psp but its actually a lot more complicated mainly because its validation system and security is more like the ps3 system than the psp in that its a dual system with legacy hardware (the ds part) and new, faster, more powerful dsi hardware.

    Why the hell is this thread made a sticky?

    It makes no sense, it has a few people interested and thats it.

    Why not make all threads sticky then?

    Because those "Game Cards" seem to be the most-sold items on DX (besides sku.1888) by a very wide margin.
    So I guess it does interrest quite a lot of people here..
