    the Acekard system comes up but it does not show the "akmenu4.nds" file you press "A" on to do the update?

    I can't make much sense of your post.
    You want to update AKAIO. Simply backup your Globalsettings.ini file and skins. Then delete _aio folder and the akmenu4.nds file from your micro sd card. Then extract the new _aio folder and akmenu4.nds onto your micro sd card. Copy over globalsettings.ini and skins into '_aio' directory, and that's it.

    doing the update for the firmware is different than doing an update to the hardware.

    as long as you have the files from the 1.5.1 zip file, and you've deleted the files from the previos version, you'll have updated.

    no, see
    I Have a New DSi here with FW 4.2u
    I also have a new AK2i (Needs to be updated to "AKAIO 1.5.1" in order to work on my DSi)
    I also have a DS-Lite here (Witch I'll be using to do the Flash on the AK2i, since its FW is lower then 4.2u)

    I put the AK2i with all the AKAIO 1.5.1 files on the root of the Micro SD card....
    and only the AK2i Menu shows up....no "Update File"

    Did you first run the game before or after you updated to AKAIO 1.5.1? If you first ran the game before AKAIO 1.5.1(Running it on an earlier version of AKAIO)
    then you will need to delete the save and start over.

    Alternatively, it can be converted.

    true, and thank you for the link.
    But it should have been a 1MB .sav to begin with?
