DSi Security Broken



Word broke late last week that the newly released DSi was incompatible with all flash cart models, but it seems that Nintendo’s security efforts were in vain. Yasu of YSMenu fame already has managed to run homebrew code on the handheld, a mere three days after its release in Japan. Above is a video clip of him running a simple application, which displays the text “Hello World” in a floating box across the screen. Specifics on how this feat was achieved are sketchy at the moment, but the author does make mention of potentially developing a PSP-esque custom firmware on his blog.


For more information please click the link. There is a video demonstration and his blog within the source.

It will be difficult for Nintendo to prevent hacking and cheating.

It is difficult for everyone to prevent hacking. It is something that will always be there no matter what.

Hopefully they will find a way to get flash carts to work on the DSi.

Yep it was only a matter of time. What a waste of time and money on Nintendo's part. Maybe they should focus on putting out better games rather than giving hackers something to do.
