    Okay, it's great that AKAIO 1.5 has been released and such stuff, but I've got a question about it. I just got an Acekard 2i with AKAIO 1.4.1 Proper Repack (or something like that) and installed it to my MicroSD together with the ak2ifw_update_14. When I started the Acekard 2i on my NDSi, I clicked on the ak2ifw_update_14 icon and updated my Acekard 2i to the firmware version 1.4 so that I could also update my Nintendo DSi to firmware version 1.4.

    Now comes my question.

    I deleted all AKAIO files including the AKAIO 1.4.1 Proper Repack and the ak2ifw_update_14 file and installed AKAIO 1.5 on my MicroSD. BUT, is there a ak2ifw_update_... file for AKAIO 1.5? I need it, otherwise the Nintendo DSi and Acekard 2i don't support the AKAIO 1.5... RIGHT?

    Can someone please fully explain it to me? Do I need an Acekard 2i firmware update file with an 1.5 behind it?

    Damn, I'm desperate..

    All you need to do is remove all traces of akaio 1.4.1 and also the ak2i_Fw_update file, then copy over the 1.5 files and you're good to go.

    No as soon as your do the upgrade the first time thats it. The upgrade upgrades your Acekard 2i not the AKAIO 1.4. That means it will work with all the firmwares.

    just use the same 1.4 fix you have but if previously you had updated your ak2i with the 1.4 fix then you don't need to do it again!

    the ak2ifw update file only needs to be run once and then you can delete it, all that file does is change the internal firmware of the acekard so it can run on the DSi 1.4, it has nothing to do with AKAIO

    I have a similar question to the OPs...

    So regardless of this new akaio verison, my Acekard 2i is still going to show up as the "Danny Phantom" game if I update my AK2i to be DSi firmware 1.4 compatible? I know it's not a big deal but I've been sticking with the old DSi firmware because I enjoy my Acekard 2i logo so much!

    It's still going to show up as Danny Pahntom. You may as well as you get to use the DSiware store, browser and other features. Otherwise you're deafeting the point of the DSi a bit.

    Aaah.. sweet. Thank you guys for helping me out [​IMG]

    So, the Acekard 2i firmware update 1.4 file can be used, regardless of the version of your AKAIO?

    I conclude that when a Nintendo DSi firmware update 1.5 comes out, there will be an Acekard 2i 1.5 fix also right?

    Thanks for the reply...

    very true, but the fact is... The DSi was my first and only DS and quite frankly, I'm only interested in playing the retail games (roms). I should have bought a DS Lite because I still love my GBA but, I didn't know any better at the time of purchase.

    I'm really lucky they decided to release this new AKAIO now, I was just days away from ordering a M3i Zero because I thought the AK2i was virtually dead.

    that's understandable. I'm not going to make a passionate speech about why you should update because I don't think the DSi is worth it. The browser still rubbish, the photo quality is as good as my phone, the voice recording app is only ten seconds long and it's not that easy to use as an MP3 player. However DSiware looks like it'll have some decent puzzle games ( I do want Dr Mario) so you might want to to upgrade just for that. You only see the acekard logo for five seconds maximum so it's not really a loss.

    That is true! Use of bold randomly is also very awesome because it makes you look cool! Yay us!
