    So after hearing about the four swords promotion I updated my DSi for it.
    Realizing that yeah of course Acekard 2i has to have an update i went ahead and downloaded the new loader as well as the firmware update for 1.4.3
    but then as i tried to run it (on a DSlite) the screen told me that my cartridge can't be updated.
    what does that even mean, and is there any way to fix it??

    also, im pretty sure my acekard isn't a clone as i've had it for a while now and all the previous updates worked just fine

    Perhaps it's a HWID 4444 (or 44 for short)? Those are pretty old batches of ak2i's, which don't work with the latest update. You've also mentioned that you've had it for a while, meaning you might have a HDWD 44 one. I think the updater tells you which HWID acekard you have when you load it up.

    I think you're right, it is a 44, and i researched around but i didn't find anything related to this so i didn't think it was too important.
    for reference the updater says
    chip id:0fc2 hw:4444

    does this mean i'm unable to update or is acekard working on that?

    unfortunately, you can't. I don't know if the acekard team is working on that either.
