    Hello guys, I'm looking for a little bit of help. [​IMG] I have searched around but I can't see any information which is specific to my problem.

    I recently bought an Acekard 2i so that I could play it on my new DSi XL which came with 1.4 EU firmware as standard. The cart loads AKAIO 1.6 perfectly but it doesn't seem to want to flash using the DSi 1.4 fix.

    I'm having to use a DS Lite as I don't know anyone close by with a DSi with firmware 1.3 or lower. When I load the 'ak2ifw_update_14_DSL' file it looks like it is updating, gets to 100% and then asks me to reboot. I reboot the DS Lite but I don't get the 'Danny Phantom' icon that I've seen everyone else talking about and then the cart obviously doesn't show up in the DSi.

    I've tried all the Dsi 1.4 fix files I could find but no luck.

    Does anyone have any ideas?


    Acekard 2i info - It shows up in AKAIO as being the 'HW 44' variety.

    my new acekard HWID: 81 doesn't appear to flash either. It acts like it does but I don't think it does. It has never worked in a DSi even 1.3.

    got mine from dealextreme, about a week ago. runs akaio 1.6rc2 but the card does not work in a DSI even 1.3U. I can flash it all day long with the 1.4 flash from my DS Lite and it doesn't change things. Works fine in DS Lite that is all.

    I think you'll have to open up and investigate or send it back to DX. Not much else you can do.

    The last 2 I received from DX in Feburary were fine, but that was a while ago.
