    Well I bought the 3DS two days ago and used my DSi to update my Acekard2i to the latest and also am running Akaio 1.8.7.

    Has anyone gotten the 3DS on this firmware to work with the AK2i?

    It shows the Acekard icon on the 3DS but when I try to play it the 3DS says to turn the power off.

    I should also note that I've had this Acekard 2i since the launch of the DSi.


    EDIT: Looks like mine is HW:444. I'll be patiently waiting for a fix then!

    Yea... seems us that have ID44 cards are not getting the love from the team. [​IMG] It'll work on a 1.4.2 DSi but that doesn't really benefit me now... I currently only have a 3DS and a GBA. It'd be more cost-effective anyway to just buy a second-hand DS phat/lite to use for programming/updating the carts instead.

    Well , if your card is HW:444 style, i am afraid you can't use it on your new 3DS 2.1.0-3 .....Just go and buy another Acekard 2i or other cards such as DSTwo and R4i gold 3DS.....

    I have heard that the older AK2i carts don't work on the 3DS you could always buy another though, they are EXTREMELY cheap after all.

    Acekard 2i with firmware update v2 works after 3DS update.

    I ran the Zelda update on my 3DS after updating my Acekard 2i to the v2 firmware. After the update my Acekard still works just fine. Hope that helps.

    A zelda update? Does that attempt to brick any flashcarts (beyond what 2.0.0.1 did) ? [​IMG]

    Last update I knew about was the Ridge Racer update.
