    Hi, I have an AceKard 2i and a DSi XL. I want to install the firmware update for 3DS so I downloaded ak2ifw_update_3ds_v1.zip and used ak2ifw_update_3ds_v1_DSi.nds but I always get "Update is canceled, reboot DS".

    The chip ID says 0fc2
    HW: 8181

    Any ideas? As far as I know my AceKard is not a clone.

    1 - Make sure no buttons at all are stuck or being pressed (as you press any other key to cancel the update).

    2 - Format your SD.

    3 - Do the paper/contacts trick.

    4 - Try running it on the original Acekard system software or an older version of AKAIO.
