    Hello, firstly, my DSi XL is on firmware 1.4.1 I think. I recently just got my Acekard in the post of etcome.com, and it works fine. But is it recommended to update my DSi XL to the latest 1.4.4 firmware, or will I be missing anything?

    Also, you know when you put in your acekard, and on the "regular" DSi menu, on the game kart square, it shows the acekard as a Chronicles of narnia game logo. is there any reason for this and is it possible to change this? Thanks

    First update your AK2i with the latest update, then it's ok to update the DSi to 1.4.4

    As for the icon, this is used to trick the DSi into allowing the flashcard to boot, so you can't change it (although I've heard of changing it in a hex editor, I'm not sure if that was doable or not)

    Before updating your dsi, I suggest updating your card first with this
    As for changing the icon, I believe that is a rom header exploit being used to by-pass the dsi firmware to run the acekard 2i, so I don't think there is anyway you can change it.

    If you change the icon there's a good chance the Acekard will no longer run on the DSi/XL, so don't try.
