So, this was copy-pasted from my GBATemp post. I probably made a few mistakes, but here you go.

Hello, this is a short(ish?) tutorial on how to get Wiimmfi, the custom Nintendo WFC replacement, working on your Nintendo DSi.

You will need the following:

A working Nintendo DSi with HiyaCFW installed (you can get that by following the guide at http://dsi.cfw.guide)

A working WEP/unsecured WiFi connection, which you can *usually* get by turning on a guest connection in your router settings, and you should probably turn on MAC filtering too. How you do this depends on your router, so it's best to just look it up.

7-Zip or another tool that can extract/open files in .7z compressed folders.

The reason this guide will be using NitroHax rather than patched ROMs is because SRLoader/DSiMenu++ tends to run multiplayer games with painful lag (or not at all) which can interrupt with fast-paced games like Metroid Prime Hunters and Mario Kart DS.

[big[6/21/2018 UPDATE: Cut the amount of steps in half, thanks to barronwaffles[/big]

Let's hop right in!

Step 1: Download ApacheThunder's DSi version of NitroHax (https://github.com/ahezard/NitroHax3DS/releases/tag/0.99.DSI) and extract the contents to the root of your SD card. Merge folders when asked.

Step 2: Go to https://raw.githubusercontent.com/barronwaffles/NobodySSL/master/nitro/cheats.xml and right-click the page, then click Save as..., then save the "cheats.xml" file to your SD card.

Step 3: Remove the SD card from your PC and put it into your DSi. You should see the NitroHax app (or a "gift" that you need to open"). With your game inserted, open the NitroHax app. You should be shown a list a cheats, but it probably only has one, "Disable SSL Connection". Press A, and the code name should turn from red to green. Press Start, and the game should begin momentarily.

Step 4: Find your network settings within the game, and enter in your WEP/unsecured connection. Run a connection test and be sure that it's successful, but it's not done yet. You need to scroll down to the "auto-obtain DNS" field, press No, and two more boxes should appear. Select Edit on the first and put in Do the same for the Secondary DNS.

Step 5: Save the connection settings and attempt to connect to Nintendo WFC. Depending on the game, the DSi may shut down. If it does, repeat Step 3. Keep in mind that you will need to do this every time; NitroHax is not a permanent patcher!

If you connect, then that means that it was a success! If you get an error code, check what it is by submitting it at https://wiimmfi.de/error.

If you have any problems when following the guide, or you see a mistake in it, please tell me!

Big thanks to Robz8, ApacheThunder, Ahezard, Shutterbug2000, barronwaffles, and countless others for making this possible!

Just imagine a guy with a dubstep 3D intro, and a muffled mic, with an Indian accent and then read this blog. For maximum realism

Just another note to anyone with a 3DS, this also works on 3DS with the 3DS versions of Wooddumper and NitroHax. I don't have a 3DS, so I won't be making a tutorial for that.

I would've put this in the blog, but I was on DSi when I made the comment.
