    Hi

    Bought a dsi a couple weeks ago and updated it.

    Only just realised the capabilities I have missed out on now.

    I have acekart 2i ready to use and have even loaded the firmware update onto it - all ready to go - but I dont actually know anyone with a ds/dsi under 1.4 !!!


    does anyone think it is going to be possible to beat the 1.4 without the need of another ds in the near future ???

    cheers

    You can't use Acekard 2i if you don't have the original Nintendo DS/Nintendo DS Lite. For the Nintendo DSi, update your Acekard 2i under 1.4. (This also works with the original Nintendo DS/Nintendo DS Lite.).

    No this is not possible.

    But seriously you don't know ANYONE with even a DS Phat or DS Lite. Are there any game stores in your area that might have displays out. Heck bribe some kid a quid you happen to see on the street to use their DS for 1 minute.

    Unlikely. Either nintendo will have to remove the block from the firmware themselves.
    Or you'll need to wait for an exploit that allows someone else to hack the check out, but when that will happen and what hardware you'll need is anyones guess. By this time you might not even need the acekard to work.

    download the update & copy both .nds files to the root of the microsd.

    put the acekard 2i into a ds/dslite(dsi

    thanks for your help

    and good gag - took me 5 days to get it !!!

    one last question I hope - when you insert the acekart into the ds lite - does it matter if anything else is on the micro sd ?? - or does it have to be just the hack and the hack only on the micro sd
