    I have an unpatched and a patched acekard 2i here, two DSi's on 1.4e and one DSlite on 1.4e (I think)
    Now, obviously, I cannot upgrade the unpatched acekard using the DSi's because of 1.4e. Is it possible to patch the card using my already patched card or the DSlite? if so, how do I do this?

    Many thanks in advance,
    Quatroking

    A DS Lite doesn't have a firmware version. Any flashcart whatsoever will run on a DS Lite. Just run the update on the DS Lite.

    Technically, yes. But not an updatable one.

    So I can safely update the unpatched acekard with the 1.4e fix? Sweet. Can I just use the same rom I used to update my other card to 1.4e or do I need a special one for DSlite?

    Also, on the side note, is it possible to patch the unpatched card using my already-patched card?

    Use the DSi update file (as opposed to DS lite)

    He wasn't suggesting you did, he's clarifying just in case.

    If you want to update your Acekard's firmware, everything you need to know is in the Firmware Updating Guide You can use your DS Lite to do this.
