    I recently got my Acekard 2i, but I think it might be bricked.

    I put the update files on the MicroSD card, booted up my DSi, started the update, thinking it wouldn't take too long (my battery was kinda low), but about halfway through the update, it shut off. I put it on the charger, started it up again, and at the DSi menu, the card's info didn't display. It was just a blank card image, with no description. Everything else works fine: apps, other games, what have you, but the Acekard is dead.

    Is there any way I can salvage it, or will I have to pay for a new one?

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Didn't bother to read the advice on running 1.4 Fix, hey?? Tut, tut! I was going to grab the quoted reference, just to remind you of the steps you NEEDED to take to update, but I'm sure you've already hit yourself in the head with an open hand by now [​IMG]
    Don't quote me on this, but I think I read somewhere that you need to run the DSL Fix Update file on your AK2i and this should "un-brick" it.

    Yeah yeah, I've already smacked myself for this one.

    Would I need to run the DSL update on a separate DS? Cuz, you know, it kind of won't read on my DSi.

    I believe this to be so.

    Alright, I'll give it a shot. Thanks a million. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Does the DS used have to be a DSL, or can it be an original? My brother only has an original, and that's the only one I have access to.

    Well, it was going fine, until the update completed. It gave me the option to either shut the power off or "Press START to move on to the next card". I hit start like a fool, and in a panic shut off the system. Now it won't recognize it on my brother's DS.

    I take it this means I have to use somebody ELSE'S DS now, huh? [​IMG]
