    I tried updating my Acekard 2i to the newest firmware via my DSLite, but when I finished I tried rebooting the system and the flashcart just showed up as blank on the screen. Is there anyway I can fix this?

    1. Find another flashcard.
    2. Download the update file here.
    3. Copy the "DSL" version of the update to the SD card for the other flashcard.
    4. Boot the alternate flashcard on any console it is capable of.
    5. Launch the update file.
    6. It will ask you to eject the current card and place in the AK2i, do so.
    7. Press Start to begin the flashing procedure.

    Thanks for your help, but I think I am going to send it back for a replacement as it is cheaper than the buying a new one.

    you flashed it and you broke it. you should take the responsibility to just reflash the bootloader. its a 5 second process (assuming you have a second flash kit and a dslite or dsi on 1.4.2). returning it after you broke it is wrong but we can't stop you.
