    think I know the answer to this but want to confirm:

    got a new dsi today and an acekard 2i. working great... I know the 1.4 system update blocks flashcarts, however is there a way to upgrade to like 1.3? or when you go to update, I assume it just gives you the most current update? I likely wouldn't even think of updating until there is a 1.4 workaround, but just thought i'd ask if I can safely go to 1.3...

    any help appreciated.

    Hopefully youre not on 1.4 because it does block all flashcarts. But with R4i exploit it seems that hope is cracking through the wall.

    No you CANNOT choose which system firmware to upgrade to, only to the newest which is 1.4. DON'T UPDATE. just wait. good things come to those who wait. thats why im waiting for the full DSi mode hack.

    Nope so stay on 1.2 for now. Yes it does give you the most current update like how the wii does.

    Your not missing much anyway.

    1.4 is really the only update with any thing new (facebook, browser update, faster camera) and thats because Nintendo want us to upgrade and block our flashcarts.

    And it worked. Alot of people upgraded before they knew it would block ak's.(luckily i did my research and found out before i upgraded)

    Do NOT upgrade for your own good. All we can do do now is wait for AKAIO(or ak team) come up with a fix. [​IMG]

    Does going into the DSi shop automattically update your firmware? I want to downlaod the DSi browser and also register my DSi for the points, but not if it updates.
    Anyone know if its safe to do so?

    you will be updating your DSi by going online right now so better pray that our flashcart makers have updates before the DSi points expired

    I think he means the offer to get 1000 free dsi points. Which expires.
