i have an acekard 2 with an 8 GB micro sd card, and it is so awesome, ive had an R4 for a year so i decided to upgrade. the only problem is my ds lites touch screen is all scratched, and the ds lite is kind of old, ive had the ds lite for 2 years, i got it in may of ;07. now i am willing to have nintendo do the costly replacement/repair as long as i do not get a ds lite that does not play flash cards. remember i have a ds lite, NOT a dsi. a dsi has upgradable firmware, no gba slot and a bigger screen that makes original NDS games distorted. the ds/ds lite by itself does not have upgradable firmware, its online capabilities were not implemented on the release of the original NDS right away, so im guessing any new ds lites that nintendo develops will have a different firmware, so if i get my ds lite replaced by nintendo, will it have new firmware that will not allow me to use my acekard 2? my current acekard 2 firmware is 4.2 this is kind of important cause i started using my ds lite more since january 09, when i started getting out more.
