    My DSi XL is 1.4 and I am gonna buy a Acekard that is apparently

    Pre-updated to 1.4.1 compatible
    The Acekard 2i is the same size as an original cart and you don’t have to flash your machine or use a passme in order to use it.

    But my DSi XL is 1.4, do I need to update or do anything to make it work?

    man you've been a member since 2002??
    shouldn't you already know this??

    anyways, if your acekard is already "Pre-updated to 1.4.1 compatible"
    than all you do is insert and play

    this guide has everything you need to know about the acekard, and it's noob friendly

    ya i looked at that it didnt mention if 1.4.1 updated acekard works on it

    anyway, does the acekard save with .nds.sav still? because i have a ds lite with a dsTT and i want the games/saves to be interchangable like same format

    just read that akaio has an option to make it .sav

    Away from you.
    Doesn't really matter, you can just delete the .nds

    If I were you, I'd go for the R4i Gold Wood compatible card. I like the quality better than AceKard and they all come (to my knowledge) fixed for 1.4

    I have the 25th Ann. DSiXL and my acekard 2i works fine with it.
    fw 1.4.1 (i updated my acekards fw first, otherwise stay on 1.4)

    An AceKard 2i is a great starter card for any DS owner, but after a year, I'm already wanting a different one, now that I see the advantages of the Supercard DSTWO and CycloDS iEvolution. Especially the iEvolution. If you're a big homebrew fan, I'd wait on more reviews of the iEvo before purchasing the AK2i. That is, if you're willing to spend the money.
