    Just got my acekard 2i for my Dsi
    i followed the steps to make sure my sd card was all prepared.
    But when i load the acekard all i get is a black screen that says an error has occurred.

    Can it be where i put the ak2ifw_update_14_dsi.nds?
    the system says that it has firmware 1.4u

    i placed this file in the root of the micro sd

    Thanks for your help

    NO. to update your acekard for 1.4, you need another DS(DSi 1.3 lower, DS Phat, or DS lite)

    yep, until your DSi is on 1.4 and it hasnt been flashed, it wont work. YOu need to borrow other DS's that I mentioned above.

    BUT Make sure it's 1.3 or lower or else it wont work either. btw on the process of the flashing, dont turn it off and plug it on a power source. to be sure lol

    Correct.
    That's why you flash the AceKard with the 1.4 compatible update.

    thanks for your help Infinite Zero and twixtidsinz

    and one last question:
    where would be the best place to place the homebrew apps? would it be the root of the sd?

    As a general rule, homebrew file itself can be placed anywhere unless you're told otherwise, while any folders typically must be paced in the root of the card.
    If they don't run properly, try placing the file on the root of the card and run it again.

    I have a couple of DS only apps that have the .ini file in the root folder while the apps themselves are about 2-3 folders deep. Don't ask why the .ini files aren't in the same folder as the app.
