    Is there anyway to get a n3dsxl to read my ak2i. My n3dsxl is on 11.4 b9s with the latest Luma installed on it.

    When I put the ak2i in the n3ds nothing shows up but it will show up on a o3dsxl a9lh with latest Luma cdw for that.

    I also have a r4rts 3ds but i don't like that gui, it's slow and clunky.

    Thanks for any help [​IMG]

    try reinserting it a few times, it's probably bad contacts
    it's either that or you might need need to update the carts firmware

    No it works fine on my o3ds but not my n3dsxl and n3ds. It doesn't show up when I have it in the systems but with my o3dsxl it shows up right away

    have you tried reseating the card inside the n3ds slot?

    Try the paper trick. My AceKard 2i with the Dorasu header is working fine on Boot9/N3DS.

    Curse ntrboothax for reviving that shitty quality ak2i card. Some things are better left dead.

    Ak2i was a great card Imo. I had that the original r4, a m3ds real and this shitty r4rts. The acekard 2iwas my favorite out of all of them

    I hope the r4i gold 3ds card gets support for ntrboothax. At this point it's one of the most popular choices for new purchases and is easier to get than ak2i (many websites just don't have it, and will send the r4i gold in it's place anyway).
    I had the ak2i years ago but the contacts started to go and even with a good cleaning would sometimes take multiple insertions to get it to register.

    It probably won't, as it would need to be reflashed to work with ntrboothax AFAIK. However, I would be stoked if they got it running. Even though, the only way I could see that happening is if they made a special .dat file for DSTT clones or a custom kernel for Wood cards...
