    I have a hacked NEW 3DS XL. I've stumbled upon an old Acekard 2i I have which I've never used (my DS Lite broke as soon as I got it a few years ago).

    I've extracted the files from "AKAIO_1.9.0.7z" to the root of an 8GB microSD and inserted it in the acekard,


    https://github.com/hansoljin/flashcard-archive/tree/master/acekard.com/AceKard_2i

    but I can't acess the flashcart in the 3DS's menu. What am I doing wrong?

    Do other ds games work correctly for your console when you try them? Or is it just this one Ds cart thats odd?

    Yeah, I've just tested Metroid Prime Hunters and it works fine. When I insert the Acekard 2i cart nothing shows up.

    I'd suggest using the official AKAIO

    What should I do? I'm completely clueless when it comes to flashcarts.

    NVM:

    "USAGE: Download the file for your card and unzip it to your "__aio/loaders" directory on your card"

    It didn't work.

    I wonder if it's a flashcard firmware problem or something.

    Oh, I see. Thanks anyway! I thought the CFW would get rid of the blacklist.

    Of course Luma3DS gets rid of the blacklist. Acekard 2i works just fine on CFW 3DS. The contents of the micro-SD inside the Acekard has no impact on it showing up in menu or not.
    Try if you can access something in [C:] GAMECART with GodMode9.

    This might be worth a try:
    https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Solving_Acekard_2i_Contact_Issues


    Trying another console, preferably a DS Lite or DS "Phat" is not a bad idea.

    Lastly: The flashcart firmware (not the kernel on the micro-SD) might be bricked if you did experiments with it or have a borked upgrade.

    Good luck!

    It was a contact issue. I need to give it a little push for it to work, and even so, sometimes it doesn't. There's something odd, though: Sometimes a Danny Phantom icon shows up, while other times it shows the Acekard icon. Which one should it be? Does it matter?



    Edit: It's working perfectly after that little push and cleaning the cart's contacts with rubbing alcohol! Is it necessary to update the cart's firmware?

    I have a functional acekard 2i in this 2021,you need to put the paper clip method for your acekard and all your issues dissapears. Mine its booting with paper clip method. I dont know how to explain because english its not my native language. You need to cut thin paper and put it below attached on your acekard 2i contacts. Dont glue it,it attaches itself.

    That's what KleinesSinchen linked to. ( https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Solving_Acekard_2i_Contact_Issues#The_Paper_Trick )

    PS: In English, a paper clip is this:

    Better not advice anybody to stick such a thing in a flashcart. ;)
