The Nintendo DSi is a part of the Nintendo DS family. The Nintendo DS Line began as early as 2004, with the Nintendo DSi seeing a 2008 release. What made the DSi standout was a built-in camera. While both consoles were hacked to allow homebrew and piracy fairly easily using flashkarts, it seems Memory Pit Exploit for DSi, is here after 11 years to give you the easiest way to hack your DSi!
Memory Pit Exploit for DSi – One hack to rule them all
If you haven’t heard of the Memory Pit Exploit for DSi, we can’t really blame you. It is a fairly new hack that was just discovered. This new exploit is significant because this now means you no longer need a hardmod. A hardmod is a hardware modification where you have to physically place a piece of hardware into the system. This is a softmod, where a piece of software is enabling full control of the handheld.
The vulnerability was discovered by shutterbug2000. It seems that the vulnerability in the software was made possible because of the camera app in the Nintendo DSi.
The process is fairly simple and straightforward. All you need is a memory card reader, a file, and a DSi.
You will need to down your pit.zip file. You can do so by clicking here.
When you have your pit.zip file, extract the content to a folder on your SD Card in the following path: private/ds/app/484E494A.
You now need to get HBMenu and copy BOOT.NDS in the Zip file and put it on the main directory of your SD Card.
Insert the SD card back in the DSi and run the camera application.
Tap on the SD card icon and select Album.
You have successfully run HBMenu on the DSi, and this has allowed you to do homebrew!
If you have been holding off on buying a Nintendo DS console, you can easily buy a DSi for cheap and with this softmod, even a monkey can get copied games to run like a breeze and play a library of DS games within minutes!
