    Hi all.

    Stupidly I updated my DSi to the latest firmware. Now my acekard does not work and I think I am correct that there is no update as of yet. Is it possible to install another firmware that works? Or does the acekard have to have acekard firmware on it?


    I am so annoyed [​IMG] Is there anything that I can do to get the card working?

    There's been an update for quite a while now. You will have to access a DS console that is either not a DSi, or that has lower firmware.

    I believe the update can be downloaded from the official website

    The update for the Acekard has yet to be released since they are still working on it.

    Yes You Can Also Use That Too and I Emailed Them And That Was Their Response But I Think It Might Be Released Later Because Of The 3DS Firmware Update... [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies guys! I hope it will be Monday now.

    I presume the card HAS to have acekard firmware, and I cannot use something different that has been fixed for the latest firmware?

    Away from you.
    If I understand you correctly, then you can flash it and then use a third-party MENU. Firmware is what will be flashed onto it.

    I see. so whatever menu I use, it won't help because the firmware itself needs to be updated?

    Why did I update my dsi! bad times!

    Correct.

    You need to update the firmware by flashing it with the not-yet-released .nds update file.

    But to do this you need an actual menu to load the .nds file, AKAIO is recommended.

    To flash it you need a DS lite/Phat or a DSi on which the Acekard works. Most likely there will be two files, a DSl file and a DSi file; flashing on a DS lite/Phat, you can use both, on a DSi, you can only use the DSi file because it doesn't hotswap properly or some shit like that.

    That's just for the oldest version, if I recall correctly (correct me if I'm wrong).

    Doesn't seem like much of a "problems with different hardware" to me. [​IMG]

    anxiously waiting on tomorrow now [​IMG]

    Is it just a rumour about tomorrow or is it pretty well known that the update will be released?

    No date has been confirmed yet. Not a good idea to wait "anxiously" on unconfirmed information.

    Just wait patiently, check Acekard.com everyday, and give them the time to fully test out their patch.
    The last thing you'd want is for them to release a buggy one, after all.


    Edit: The official topic says the release date is ~June 6th: http://gbatemp.net/t292273-dsi-update-1-4-2-live
    Again, just be patient and it will come soon enough. [​IMG]

    yeh I heard that date too. However some people, inlcuding on a video from the main guys themselves, that a update is due to be released today based on emails they have received so will at least cross my fingers for something [​IMG]
