    just got this thing and I've been searching for about an hour how to fix it.

    formatted my sd card with panasonic 3.1
    copied the menu file and Akaio 1.7.1 which I know isnt the current one now that i've searched a little bit
    I downloaded the update ak2ifw_update_3ds42_dsi144_onDSL.nds

    after downloading akaio I finally got a menu working (this was under the deep labriyth logo) so naturally the first thing I did was update it

    now its the rafa nada logo and when I start up the acekard from the DS menu it says loading, flashes white, then just a black screen forever.

    I also checked to make sure it wasnt a contact issue by shaking my ds while its loading above my head etc. etc. and both the cartridge and the sd card are firmly in place

    I'm wondering where I went wrong and where I should go from here.

    if you are using it on a ds lite, why did you fix what wasn't broken? =/

    try reflashing the bootloader update but use the last build of the acekard firmware and not akaio. if you are going to use akaio use 1.9.0 and change the hb soft-reset hook, as the hook can cause the bootloader update software not to run.

    What do you mean by reflashing? I'm not sure how to do that? haha I will admit I'm pretty stupid at this stuff

    So I should delete everything off my sd card
    then copy the latest acekard update which is 1.44 right?
    then copy akaio 1.9 to it as well and it should boot up this time?

    That's what he said, but if it's really a bad bootloader update, you're screwed unless you can find another AK2i owner.

    ok now I got the new akaio and tried running the sd card with only the 1.44 DSL update, the newest menu and the newest _aoi folder and I didn't even get a screen that said loading it just goes straight to black.

    then I tried it without the _aoi folder and I got the loading screen then I got a screen that said
    "The skind Adv.EvoR can't be found
    Adv.EvoR couldn't be found either
    Please delete globalsettings.ini
    and restore Adv.Evor theme."

    So, I got it to work now and I think the problem was either the update or the fact that I had no roms so the only things on my sd card now are

    _aio (1.9.0)
    the menu that goes with it
    and a folder with my roms

    thank you everyone who helped and if anyone ever has my problem again... there it is
