    The official acekard website has updated it's front page:

    Update of AK2i for 3DS! [ 2011-03-25 ]

    But when you click on the link the file is down and you get a 404 error [​IMG]
    Did anyone manage to get the file and test it out?

    Updates:

    The link to the file isn't officially out - Link is broken but unreleased file link is below
    Some people are reporting 'bricking' so use at your own risk!
    Others reporting that it works by deleting specific system files (See below)
    Maybe problems in updating HW 44

    A lot of people stating the DSi file isn't working when updating on the DSi but will work on the DS lite/phat


    Link to unreleased file - http://www.acekard.com/download/ak2/
    Look for: ak2ifw_update_3ds_v1_DSi.nds


    Possible workaround: (Some reporting this didn't work)

    Update 2: Official file is now up


    Update 3: Team Acekard have updated their site saying they need to fix a bug in the 3DS update file

    'The Oldest AK2i Can't Update Temporarily

    The first type of AK2i, which has a little window in the shell of back, can't update to support 3DS temporarily. The HWID of this type of AK2i is "44". We need do more test. Please be patient. We're sorry for the inconvenience.'

    Works for me:

    This update can make your AK2i run DS games on 3DS. The 3DS and 3DS games are not hacked yet. Please be patient.
    Please choose a update file to run depends on the type of your console.
    "ak2ifw_update_3ds_v1_DSi.nds" for DSi and DSiXL.
    "ak2ifw_update_3ds_v1_DSL.nds" for DSL and DSPhat.
    Then follow the instruction on screen.
    We take no responsibility for any damage of fake cards caused by update.

    the update probably works for just one specific region of the 3DS ?
    maybe it doesnt work with all regions?
    just sayin'

    No, the ds mode on 3ds isn't region locked.
    They have probably not yet released the proper bootstrap update. [​IMG]
