    You'll need a ds phat or lite. You can also use a dsi/3ds, if the firmware is low enough that your current ak2i can run on.

    Download the latest updater. Along with akaio firmware, place the correct updater in the root of your micro sd card (read the readme.txt for more info on this). Boot up your ak2i on the ds phat/lite and boot up the updater; do as prompted.

    There's no other way, unfortunately. If you have a neighbor or friend who can lend you one, that'd work. If not, you'll probably have to buy a used ds phat/lite (worst-case scenario).

    You could buy a new flashcart that works on 3DS 3.0.0, such as an Acekard 2i that is pre-updated to work with 3DS 3.0.0. However, the easiest thing to do is borrow a DS/DSi/3DS that your Acekard still works with so you can update the Acekard.

    Dude, just go to a Gamestop and bring your flashcart.

    Then ask if you can check out one of their models. Quickly put in your Acekard 2i and update, then return the DS to them.

    WIN. Plus some stores are pretty cool and will just let you update, my local store guys noticed me doing it and they were just like, ":P k dude, it's fine lulz"
