    Hi all,

    I recently bought an Acekard 2i for my DSi from Xpertron.
    At first, all appeared to be working fine. I installed the Acekard firmware, Moonshell and a few game backups. All seemed to be fine.
    Then one evening, I powered my DSi on to see a message saying that a probem occured and the Acekard firmware wouldn't start.
    I fiddled a bit with the cart and the Flash card. It then started again...
    Hmmm...
    I wasn't too sure what firmware was on my DSi, although I hadn't knowingly updated since I purcahsed it about 3 weeks ago. So I thought I'd better apply the update for 1.4 compatibility.
    Downloaded it, stuck it on the card and run it. Simple. Apart from the fact that my Progress status stayed at 0% and after 30 minutes, nothing else had happened. So I ended up having to restart, hoping that the original firmware had not been erased yet. It had!!! [​IMG]

    I tried to contact Xpertron to organize a return for replacement. A week later and no feedback from them.
    The phone number on their website doesn't answer. I once got an answer phone and left a message with my contact details. Still nothing.
    Has anybody ever had to return something back to them and been successful?
    I am not sure yet whether this is a one man band and he's on holiday this week but I'm getting concerned that I've just wasted my hard earned cash with them...

    Regarding my bricked card, I read that it can be recovered if I run the DSL firmware update using a working Acekard on a DSL, eject the card and insert the bricked one in.
    Does anybody know if the firmware update executable can also be executed from another Flash cart like a Hyper R4i, EZ Vi...?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!

    You posted in the GBA section. You should post in the NDS section under Acekard.

    Sorry, it was my first post on this forum. I'll open a new thread in the NDS section...
