    I bought an acekard 2i for my girlfriends DSi a few months back. I hacked it and have been playing games off the 2i just fine. well the other night my girlfriend stupidly decides to "system update" now when i select "Acekard 2i" from the main menu i get a black screen that says "An error has occurred. Press and hold the power button to turn the system off. Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations Manual for help troubleshooting"

    Any other game works fine, how can i get the acekard working again?

    i have the same problem.

    you have to update your acekard, but you cant do that on your dsi because it is running 1.4 firmware so it wont load the acekard. so basically you have to download the update file off the internet, put it on your sd card, and load up your acekard 2i on a ds lite or ds phat. you can also update on a dsi using 1.3 firmware or below. then run the update file as if it were a ds game. it should update your acekard so that it will work with your 1.4 firmware.

    if you dont have a ds lite, ds phat, or dsi running 1.4 firmware or below to update with..... youre pretty much screwed.....

    EDIT: This site has a complete guide and download links

    Some DSi's have that problem even with the AK bypass. Mine still gets that error frequently when trying to load it :[

    The only problem i had was sometimes if i dont hold B it loads the menu but lists nothing and i have to reset the DSi. but no big deal i always hold b out of habit.
