DSiWare NitroFS protection (why does this even exist :D)
« on: November 06, 2016, 06:12:03 pm »
I'm currently attempting to translate a DSiWare game (Too Much Tingle Pack, to be exact). As far as I know, this is the first attempt at such a project. I've managed to obtain an .nds of the game, and it runs in no$gba. However, any modification to the Nitro File System of the rom results in the game refusing to boot. Apache Thunder was kind enough to explain why this is to me here -

I've tried to figure out how to patch out these "Digest Sector Tables", but the only other place I've been able to find that even mentions it is here, and it doesn't seem to have any info on how to patch the checks

Is there anyone that would be able to help me with this? I'd really like to have this DSiWare translated by the time my other project is done (in my sig), since they were both released together originally (in Japan obviously :)). Thanks in advance!
