    hey, just wondering since you joined specifically to make this post, if you're familiar with updating the firmware on the carts and if you avoided updating your 3DS System Firmware which blocked the cartridges. there are tutorials and other threads about updating the firmware, the one that keeps track of whether there is an available AK2i firmware update to provide compatibility for the current 3DS system firmware is here:there is a page on the Wiki about updating the AK2i Bootloader (not AKAIO):just trying to save you both some trouble as international shipping can be expensive and it may be avoidable.. however, if you're on the current System Firmware (i.e. you're able to browse the eShop) you're most definitely blocked by Nintendo and the cards themselves are probably not defective (would work on DS Lite, DSi)


    cheers if you've already done your research on all that ^_^

    I have a defective Acekard 2i. I double checked the Anti-counterfeit code and it is genuine. Can I return this item?

    yes its possible.

    to all : when possible you should try to reflash the aki with another aki . usually reflashing firmware can recover a dead aki.

    if still not success you can msg me for return address for exchange

    Hi, zhuzhuchina. I recently bought a second acekard2i for another family member but it came dead. Multiple 3DS and DSL do not recognise the card, and I have tried many different variations of the paper trick but nothing has worked. I have confirmed the MicroSD is fine and works in another ak2i, and after about two weeks of trying different things, I'm quite sure it's dead.

    Would I be able to get messaged the address for a replacement card?

    Thank you.

    Yes, according to the check on acekard website's anti-clone page it is genuine.

    Between insane and insecure
    Because if they did that, no one would buy their cards again.

    They are still in the business of selling their product and putting something "we can no longer support the latest 3DS/DSi updates" on their site would ruin them.

    Hey there, my acekard 2i has suddenly started to show a blank cartridge image in the DSi menu and will not work regardless of what microSD card is in it or what DSi it is in. I have another acekard and all of my SD cards worth with it just fine. I've also checked the anti piracy number and it checks out. Could we arrange a replacement?
