    I ask this because the alternative forum is in maintenance for weeks and the official website/forum doesn't have noting new for about 2 months already.

    Can we assume that the team can't overpass the 3ds new update and therefore the card is dead now? Will the acekard keep going on updates IF dsi will have new updates?

    It's my assumption that there won't ever be an update for 3DS version 4.4.0-10 or higher, but I see no reason why they wouldn't release new patches for future DSi updates if there are any.

    But your guess is as good as mine or anyone else's. No one knows.

    two unique contacts, both directly tied to acekard, have confirmed that an update is entirely possible.

    however, it doesn't seem like it is going to be developed and released anytime soon.

    you would need to ask them. could be a lack of time, money, interest, or the fact that the ds-scene is at its end.

    Probably some R4 clone. One of the R4i models are one of the few cards (IIRC The DSTWO being the other that works) that support 4.4.

    They might be selling a different cart with an AK2i label.

    Wouldn't be the first site selling carts with swapped labels.

    I have a friend who works with the Acekard team. Not only they will launch an update in 2 weeks, but their update will make the cart capable of loading 3DS roms!!!!

    Now, seriously... I don't mean to be rude, but try asking them yourself. Last times people have done that, they at least realesed an beta update. And if they give you no response, this is already a better answer than any member of this forum can give you. You won't find any real answer in here, just opinions.

    Well now I believe the acekard is officially dead. The original legitimate website is no longer up, and updates are non-existant.

    The Acekard isn't dead; the DS is.

    I have to ask to anyone. Will Acekard 2i work on 3DS firmware is 4.3.0-10U for on 3DS and 3DS XL?

    I had one blue 3DS XL come with firmware 4.3.0-10U. I owned two Acekard 2i – HW81. Let me know.

    So, yes, i'm never had a DS. And i have a DSi XL and a AK2i
    but acekard.com is down, so do i need the original ak2i files? or it will work if i only get MAIO or AKAIO?
    I can't find any AK2i original files anywhere.

    I'd recommend AKAIO, but you can also get the official firmwares right here, on gbatemp: http://filetrip.net/nds-downloads/flashcart-files/acekard-series/
