Connecting to Sudomemo is simple and easy. All that’s needed is one settings change.

WARNING: Do not reset your Nintendo DSi System or uninstall Flipnote Studio; doing so will cause you to permanently lose access to your Flipnote Studio ID. If Flipnote Studio was not preinstalled on your system, you will not be able to re-download it as the DSi Shop is no longer open.

NOTE: This guide is for using Sudomemo on the Nintendo DSi. If you don’t have a DSi, or want to use Sudomemo on your Nintendo 3DS or 2DS, follow this guide:
