Hello everyone, thanks for your help! I just got a DSi for christmas and it is 1.4 out of the box. I bought the AceKard 2i, because i was under the impression that it was start up no problem on a new DSi. All of the reviews i read were NOT updated, and did not warn me that it useless on a new DSi. ive read that you need to update the AceKard firmware on an older DS (in which may ruin your flashcard, as i have read in some posts). i dont know if i trust this process. Can anyone help me get this going. I have a friend who has a DSlite and is running an r4 chip on it, if that updating process works. To me, it seems like the AceKard is nothing but trouble, and i couldnt image going through this every few months, but i really like OS and i heard good reviews. Is there a better chip that i should have bought? im a bit of a noob, but id appreciate all of your opinions, and i hope i can play this DSi! (i have no games) : ( Thanks again for your help!!
