    One's inner self
    no lol
    usually 6-8 weeks before they release a patch

    there is also a chance with 4.40-10 there card may be permanently blocked

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but since the last 2 patches, they have not been very quick with their release. That said, at this point in time, it is more likely than not that Nintendo's latest move will not be patchable. So far only 3 cards have been confirmed to be able to do so and Acekard is not one of them.

    tl;dr Do NOT update your 3DS if you want to continue using your Acekard.

    They used to be fast with their DSi/3DS compatibility updates, but not anymore, they're one of the slowest teams now.

    The Acekard team have historically been rapid to respond with a patch when a new Nintendo update blocks their flashcart.
    However, you can only do so much with software, and with the advent of 4.40-10 this latest update may require additional hardware for many flashcarts to remain functional.

    While this may herald the end of the current generation of flashcarts, it will also hasten the development of next generation flashcarts like the Supercard DS2.

    The future is still looking bright and I believe that we will see great things coming down the pike shortly.

    I'd like to point out that "Nintendo's newest AP" is still pure conjuncture as of today, plus, even if it's the real deal, everything depends on whether or not low-level ROM of the FPGA is accessible on Acekards. Time will tell.

    It doesn't really look good for the Acekard team.
    While they are usually pretty slow with patches, it looks like Nintendo's last stand on the flashcard market is going to hold.

    Not saying its impossible, just not very likely, I wouldnt get your hopes up.

    Personally planning to buy an R4i Gold or SCDS2 in the next few weeks, gonna miss my AK2i though, used that thing for ages.

    Well there goes the value of my acekard2i :( should I bite the bullet and buy an R4 or does anyone here have any hope of Acekard coming out with a miraculous patch?

    every time acekard.com do the same, they take a lot time to propose a firmware solution,
    so people who have an acekard 2i know what append when nintendo launch a new firmware for their DSi or 3DS,
    they need to wait 4 to 8 weeks before get a firmware for their AK2i !!!

    So why we see all the time people said: i will buy an R4i, i will do that... i will do this... :moogle:

    But why wee need to wait so long all the time = i really dont know ! :P

    Well it's good to have confirmation that my theory (for that) was right.

    Hey Smiths,
    If AK Team say that AK2i is permantly blocked,
    and leave the flashcard business,
    will you still support Akaio?

    if i want to add things to it, i will add things to it. who knows what's happening where. AKAIO was based off of acekard.com firmware for acekard RPG... i mean hell, just a quick search sent me to this thread:

    http://gbatemp.net/topic/84222-new-release-of-acekard-rpg-custom-firmware-bnsm-199-now-akbbs-199/

    April 2008.

    not bad for a bunch of programmers just dicking around to keep things running in a way they like.

    You and Normmatt did a great job with Akaio,
    and I'm sure every AK user is grateful for both of you.
    But I, and most of AK users, have been wondering if AK Team will survive to this update.
    And if Acekard Team dies, everything will change.
    I may be asking too much, and if I am I apologize,
    but having a word from you, would give reliability for every AK user.

    Good news everyone!

    The official AK2i website updated with an announcement for the upcoming release of a ptach for 4.4.0-10.

    So,it is possible that AK2i team found a way to bypass Nintendo's latest AP measures!

    Any thoughts on this?
