    Okay, this is kind of driving me nuts now >:(.


    I have a DSi and a DSiXL. Both are updated to 1.41. My Acekard is at the newest firmware/kernel (so 1.81?--I forget, I and I'm not home to check ATM-- and the Stormrider fix). I updated both DSi's at the same time and in the same way, so there is no difference there.


    Problem is, the Acekard works great on the DSi...but seems to have freezing issues on the DSiXL. Got 3 random freezes using the DSiXL in an hour of play on FF4HoL, but none in the 12 or so hours I've put into the game on the DSi.


    Any possible solutions/suggestions other than "Your DSiXL is defective"?

    My best guess would be that it is fitting more snug into the DSi, than the DSiXL. Try the "paper fix." See if that fixes it.

    40 thousand guilds out there, but the gist is to take a small piece of paper, and slide it between the contacts, and the plastic frame behind it. This pushes the pins ever so slightly forward allowing for a better connection. Usually the answer when an AK2i works great in one system, but not another.
