Many DS fans are psyched about the new Nintendo DSi coming out with a built in camera. For those people who are not that hard core fans, the DSi will include a camera in both the inside and the outside, a SD Card slot, and the usual DS features.
But one thing I don’t think Nintendo should of added was that SD card slot. Almost gaming device with a SD/Memory Card slot has been hacked into. The Playstation Portable, Nintendo Wii, and Playstation 2. You can’t forget about one of the easiest PSP hacks, the TIFF exploit, where hackers were able to downgrade the PSP by making a program with a TIF image the hack was simple. Playstation games have been used to hack the Playstation 3 partly now. The DSi supposedly will have the ability to read pictures off of the SD card. The Wii hack was made by using a SD Card and a game, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Using the SD Card to put a game save where your horse’s name would crash the game, leaving it exploit able to install Custom Firmware. The DSi will also be having a SD Card slot, making it that much more easier to hack. Maybe hide a file inside of a picture and when the DSi runs it, it will run home brew.
So the main question is, will it be hackable and when will we hack it?
Edit: YES IT HAS BEEN HACKED! Just three days after it’s release in Japan, some hacker got a DSi and was able to run home brew on it. Nintendo DS hacks and homebrew also work on it. They should be able to get some stuff to work with the cameras. As I pointed out earlier, everyone suspects that a TIFF exploit was used via a intentionaly corrupted TIFF file.
