    Hi,

    bit of a noob as just got my 3ds and updated my Acekard which now works fine. I used the ak2ifw_update_3ds3.0_DSi143 and I'm currently on system software v.2.1.0.-4e
    So my question is can I do the system update through the console and still keep the AK working?

    Thanks

    when you think about it, it's fine to update to any 3DS firmware nindento releases until the 3DS is fully hacked, because a flashcart wouldn't be considered working if they were unable to play 99% if not all games available at the time of it's release (meaning games that are yet to come out, and therefore require current if not higher firmware to play), and wouldn't be released 'til it was
    (unless hacking a 3DS would mean you could remain on a lower firmware.. that would be good but i guess nintendo could overcome each hack with each new update fairly easily...)
