    What happens if the 3DS wants a firmware update etc, do we allow it to download or install updates, or do we have to prevent it updating. Is there a chance that the 3DS will lock ot or some other problem through using the aceKard 2i.............Thanks for helping me out, its much appreciated!!!

    If the 3DS asks for an update I would suggest NOT to update straight away.
    Check on GBATemp to see if the update block the acekard first & if it does - wait & check to see if the Acekard team bring out a firmware update

    THEN Update the firmware of the flashcard first THEN update the 3DS afterwards

    The acekard should support the latest 2.1.0-4 3ds firmware. you should probs make sure the acekard has the latest bootloader update and firmware on it.

    Here is the latest bootloader update for your acekard-

    If you are using a ds lite to update your card you need the ak2ifw_update_3ds21__DSi143_onDSL_NO44 file, put the file on your cards sdcard and boot the acekard up in your ds lite.

    You can find the newest AKAIO 1.8.8 link on here somewere if you search.

    Wait...so he asks a question that could have been answered with not even a search but a browse of the topic page could have told him that it works and were not flaming? Who divided by zero again?
