DSi Emulation?

Postby xperia64 » Wed Oct 15, 2014 9:19 pm

Normally I am not one to make threads like this. However, a method to decrypt DSiware titles into .nds files has been released. Legally, the utility is in a bit of grey area copyright wise as it contains keys. But, the ROMs themselves are incredibly easy to extract once purchased from the DSi shop channel (NOT 3DS eShop, must be a DSi)

The .nds files are good, as SDAT's and the like can be ripped from them. Also this:

Apprently, the arm7i and arm9i binaries in these ROMs are actually decrypted and theoretically runnable.

That's 'swell, and I assume you get the keys off a DS you own, too. It's just as gray as dumping a game from any console anyway, though I agree the situation's a bit more complicated with encryption involved. Most tools for GTA IV, for example, take the keys from a (legally-purchased) copy of the game rather than integrate them to the tools for legal reasons.

No$ has been keeping in touch with me on details with his DSi reverse engineering efforts, and I'd like to try getting to it one day.. but it'd be good to first have enough documentation about the DSi-specific hardware.
