    Today I updated my Acekard 2i so that it can play on the 3DS 4.2.0-9 firmware. When I put my acekard into my 3DS it shows that tennis game as the icon. When I try booting it up I get an error message that tells me to restart my system.

    Are you sure your 3DS isn't 4.3.x already?

    Maybe reformat the MicroSD using the Panasonic SD Formatter? Don't forget to back up games/files/saves first. I had an issue after the 4.2.0.9 update and this resolved it.

    Hmm this sounds like the 3DS has been updated to 4.3 as someone mentioned earlier.

    you are getting the icon but it is not booting, it sounds like a corrupted bootloader install. try running it again using the last official acekard firmware, and not akaio. if that doesn't fix it, you may be experiencing the all to common contact issue.

    You can try rubbing a damp cotton bud over the contacts with water or alcohol.

    not water, the junk in water can cause corrosion.

    if it doesn't work, its deemed 100% legit, then i would contact my reseller and ask for an exchange. if that doesn't work contact acekard@gmail.com and do the same.

    Wait, when were we allowed an option of which update we want to apply to our 3DS? The OP says he updated today, which was 7-31-12, and he doesn't have 4.3.0-10 firmware???????
    I would love to see a picture of your system setting for firmware. Camera shot please, or even better, a youtube 10 second video?

    I didn't update my 3DS, I updated my acekard. Sorry for the confusion.
