    okay, so after finally getting some time to catch up to what's all been going on, I finally go and download the firmware update that is supposed to allow the Acekard to work on a 3DS from acekard.com.

    Got it loaded on the microSD, I boot up the card in the DS(lite), and then run the updater.

    However, when I load it up, and follow the instructions to eject and reinsert the card again, I get the following message:
    Code:
    AK2i FIRMWARE UPDATE(3DSv1)
    
    CHIP ID: 0FC2 HW: 4444
    
    This catridge(sic) can't be updated.
    I don't understand... especially since the DSi firmware update that was previously available for this card went on without a hitch, and I can run the latest AKAIO without issue.

    What should I do? I don't have a 3DS (yet), but I'd rather be prepared in the event that I do get one. [​IMG]

    HW44 can't be updated.

    Everybody with one of those is waiting on a fix.

    Acekard isnt giving 3ds support for hw44(almost 2 months waiting) so if you are planning to get a 3ds i advice you to choose another flashcard brand with a better client support.

    Augh, this really bites. [​IMG] Whelp, any recommendations of what to start looking at? Much as I dig the extra hardware and capabilities of the SC DS2, many of the places I'm looking at that carry it (and are reputable) are trying to charge as much as $50 (+shipping) for it.

    Have you thought about checking out 0shippingzone? I buy from that site all the time.

    Never heard of it before. A quick check so far shows perfect feedback on resellerratings, so that's a good thing.

    I can confirm that they are a great and trustworthy site. I bought almost all my flashcards from them (the my others cards came from Shoptemp when it still sold them.)
    Their shipping time can be a little long, but it's not as long as some sites I got a flashcard from once.
