Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Team Twiizers shows off a Sudoku (DSiWare) exploit for running homebrew on a DSi. Wow, an actual reason to buy Electronic Arts’ Sudoku game! You might want to grab it now for 200 points before Nintendo pulls it.

From what I can gather, this is not for playing pirated retail or DSiWare software. It’s a “savegame hack” similar to what Team Twiizers has released in the past for the Wii, allowing you to load homebrew games and apps from an SD Card, no flashcart required.

The group explains, “Exploiting DSiWare is interesting because in DSi mode the DSi SD card slot is accessible, the whole 16MB RAM is available, and the CPU is clocked 2x higher than DS-mode.”

The hack has severe limitations at the moment, as it’s unable to run homebrew using FAT, touchscreen and audio only work on apps using the latest libnds, and, uh, other technical things that I don’t understand. It’s neat to see advancements in the DSi homebrew scene, though!

[Update: And a day later, Nintendo has pulled the game from both its U.S. and European shops]

Preorder: Nintendo 3DS (March 27, $249.99)
