    Hey people. I bought an Acekard for my DSL a while ago, but I got myself a DSi XL yesterday therefore I am now interested in buying the Acekard2i.

    I am just wondering if right out of the box, this will work on the DSi XL? If yes, then I am buying one tonight.

    Hopefully someone can help me out with this!

    Thanks!

    What do you mean updating the acekard using DSL? its not like just downloading the acekard files off acekard.com?

    Soooo if my DSi XL updated to have that Facebook function, I can still update the Acekard2i to work? Brilliant!

    Wow, this thread settled my desicion to buy a NINTENDO DSi XL. I have an Acekard 2i and was wondering if it would work on there.
    I'm going to take GameStop's great deal on trading in my DS Lite or DSi...
    Wait, will it work if my NINTENDO DSi is broken? I have an broken inside camera from... a various liquid...

    I looked on Dealextreme and it is possible they do not keep them in stock anymore? A search for Acekard gave nothing! I some good deals in Canada(Where i'm at). 19.99 genuine + free shipping.

    Just need to do that update when it would come in.


    OR

    should I wait if there is a new Acekard that will be compatible with 1.4 right off the bat?

    I would suggest purchasing an acekard and performing the update for 1.4 compatibility.

    Lol yeah we don't want to know what liquid it is [​IMG] hahaha.

    I got my DSi XL for free at Best Buy! They had an offer that you traded 5 games and you got it free!
    I traded 3 Xbox 360 games(Army of two:40th day, Batman A:A, and Ghostbusters), and 2 DS games (Zelda P-H, Pokemon Diamond).

    I HATE trading in games, but I told myself "Why not?" lol [​IMG]

    I contacted 0shippingzone.com and they said that they update the Acekard2i before they send it to you, so you won't have to do anything once you get it! and their shipping is free!

    Done!. Bought from 0shippingzone! 17.5$ total with the shipping insurance, and they update it to 1.4 for me, so i can't go wrong!

    Posts merged

    I recommend you all check the site for Flash carts, they seem to have VERY good prices and free shipping worldwide [​IMG]

    Cheers!

    I've already got a Acekard 2i. I'm still deciding whether to get one as i sell DS flash cards for it.
