    Hey guys I do not want to buy AK2i knowing that when DSi V1.15 or etc comes out and it's not usable unless we buy a new one. Can AK2i be updated too like M3i? Regards

    Yes, it probably can, we only don't know what nintendo will do to block them. When a new update comes out, you should stay on a lower firmware, to see what the new one is doing and if it blocks your card.

    I see...but through what means they're going to update? You know that M3i has the Flashing cable to do the job

    if i understand your question right, they update it by running an updater from the card itself like with the 1.4 update to a danny phantom icon. You need to run the program on your acekard on a dsi or a dslite.

    Through the means of running a .nds file made to flash the bootloader.

    Thanks. For now can anyone tell me why is there so many 'types' of firmware besides the official one lol. Maybe you can list them all? Because I've only used R4 before and they've only the official firmware.

    Official and akaio are pretty much the only firmwares for the 2i. There is ysmenu but that risks bricking your acekard 2i's boot loader.

    I already got my AK2i [​IMG] 2nd cart after R4.

    Can someone confirm if KH, and Mario RPG3 requires any patch if i'm using the latest loader? Clean rom

    Not positive about KH, but Mario RPG3 runs fine without any patch.

    KH is is running fine... unless you return to the title screen. [​IMG]
    and Mario RPG 3 runs wll but I have noticed that the tops screen sometimes flickers (not very noticable) and it has already been reported in the AKAIO bug reports... but it's not much of a big deal. [​IMG]

    KH issue has been fixed on lastest loaders.
    Mario RPG graphic corruption occurs on all flashcards, I think.
