Hi, I am about to buy a DSi and flashcard. I have read some other topics and plan on getting the acekard 2i from shoptemp. I want to try and figure out a couple things before i do though. First of all, I take it an SD card is necessary, and how many GBs does one really need? I'm aiming at 8gigs but is that excessive? Would it by wiser to go smaller on the gigs in case I need to upgrade the entire card in near future? I read in one topic from tk_saturn "All flashcarts require a MicroSD card, then are unable to use the DSi's card slot."(Important info it seems, but I can't understand it grammatically) This is because DSi mode hasn't been broken and hence also applies to the DSi Camera etc. The Acekard requires a firmware update so it can be used on a DSi with firmware 1.4. If your DSi is already updated to firmware 1.4, you will have to perfrom the update on a DS Lite/ DS Phat or DSi with Firmware 1.3. ShopTemp will preupdate them for you if you select that as an option when you add it to the cart. See Premium Update + Flashing Service. " This info is very helpful, but as I have not bought my DSi yet, should I just assume that if I buy a new one it will have Firmware 1.4? I may not have access to another DS to do this work myself and was planning on ordering the flashcart before I pick up DSi. Thanks for your time, hope my questions weren't too redundant.
