I've ordered a Acekard 2i to replace my crappy R4, but I only have a DSi XL (1.4e FW) and if the card doesn't come ready flashed to work on 1.4 I'm guessing from what I've read here on the forums I got no way of updating it?

If it doesn't work on a DSi 1.4 then it must be flashed with the old original, boot loader. Find a friend's DS Lite like stated to update your AK.

Try updating it again. My Acekard works fine on my DSi XL.

The XL has the same internal components as the DSi.
There must be something wrong with the XL, as there is no reason it should not work with a cart that works on a standard DSi.

The only difference is that DSi's can come with 1.3 firmware which is natively bypassed by all DSi flash carts.
The DSi XL comes with the 1.4 firmware so your flash cart needs to be first updated with a DS phat/lite or 1.3 DSi. Or unless you have the M3i Zero which can be updated via USB.
Some sites such as www.leetmod.com allow you to choose to have them update your flash cart to be 1.4 compatible for you before they ship it out. This costs a dollar extra on leetmod.

Well I contacted 7dayshop asking about if it comes ready to work on a 1.4 DSi but not got a response yet, I'll be sending it back anyway.

I ordered one from addictsupplies.com it costs more but I emailed the person who runs it and he answered back in about 20 minutes and this was at 2am in the morning and he stated it will come ready to work on 1.4 and be tested before posting, well worth the extra few quid I think.
