    I unsuccessfully updated an Acekard2i with the DSi 1.4 fix (ak2ifw_update_141_DSL.nds). However my DS Lite now hangs during start-up (bottom screen white, top screen shows clock and calendar) while a DSi XL does not recognize the acekard at all. When i try to unbrick this Acekard using another acekard and flashing the bootloader again nothing changes. I also tried the previous update (ak2ifw_update_14_DSL.nds) with no success.

    The chip id of the bricked card is always "e0ff0fd2" and does not change to a 4-digit string. It seems to be an original card as the HW id is "8181", also all the other acekards i brought from this shop were ok.

    Does anyone know why "unbricking" this card does not work?

    I'm not 100% sure anymore but i think the acekard did work before updating. what went wrong.
