I bought two Acekard 2i's from RHS and neither of them are working on my DSLite (it's a DSLite and not a DSI or 3DS so I know it's not a firmware issue.) Here's what I've done; First Acekard; 1.) Inserted the card, stock, into my DS. It recognized at the DS BIOS/home screen as a Tennis game. 2.) Removed cart, downloaded AKAIO.1.9.0 from official AKAIO site. Placed files on microsd and returned to DS. 3.) Booted DS, ran Tennis game, got to AKAIO launcher. Launched my pre-patched backup (confirmed working on Acekard 2i by others) 4.) Halted on "Loading" screen. 5.) Upon rebooting, my DSLite no longer detects the Acekard with or without the microSD in it. Second Acekard; 1.) Tried my second cartridge without the microSD in it, was shown the Tennis game on the BIOS screen. 2.) This time I formatted the microSD using the latest version of Panasonic SDFormatter and then replaced the 1.9.0 firmware files on the root of the card, along with my .ROM dump. 3.) Replaced cart into DS and turned system on, Acekard no longer detects in DSLite with or without microSD inserted in it. 4.) Removed Acekard, tried original first party DS cartridge, detects normally at home screen. So, at this point, I took the second cartridge and tried to carefully peel back the clone sticker. At this point, something very unfortunate happened. The code reads in the following format; XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX In purple ink. The left columns remained on the left half of the sticker (they stuck to the left half of the sticker instead of sticking to the cart) so now I have to read the code BACKWARDS. Okay, I thought. I put the code into the Acekard website as best I could legibly read it and it said invalid code. Also, the code checker on the Acekard site is NOT two rows of an input field - it's just one row, so I put everything in jumbled together without spaces. What's the deal? I don't think this is a contact issue, but I'm unsure. I can provide pictures of the contacts if it would help. I've put a light to my NDSLite's pin connectors and they're very clean - I took to them for a moment with compressed air and then gently cleaned them and checked once more to ensure they weren't the issue. Still no dice in getting the carts to read. I've e-mailed RHS, I'm just waiting on a reply. Does anyone know if I'll be able to return these with them if I peel off the clone sticker on the other to check? I don't want to peel the stickers and then get stuck with carts that aren't working due to contact issues or otherwise bootleg carts. What should I try next? Thanks.
