    Make sure you update the loaders first.

    Something could have gone wrong during the WiFi dump so I would just download the BAHAMUT release to ensure the ROM is valid.

    Download AKAIO 1.7.1 and copy the "__aio" folder & akmenu4.nds to the root of the MicroSD. Update loaders via WiFI on the AKAIO Menu or manually by downloading loaders here and placing the extracted ak2loader.nds in SD:\__aio\loaders.

    Ok thanks
    All of that makes sense to me
    But what does bahamut mean?
    Also how do you download the loaders is there a homebrew
    Sorry I'm a noob.

    Bahamut is the group that dumped the rom [​IMG]

    Also the loaders should come with the AKAIO 1.7.1 download so don't worry about those.

    To UPDATE the loaders just go to the start menu on the AKAIO menu, hit More, then Wi-Fi update, then choose to update the loader where it says File to Download. Of course this all assumes you have Wi-Fi.

    Just now looking at those above posts, hehe.

    No that's the wrong. The loaders in the initial release broke DQ9 which is why I asked him to update because Norm fixed it a heartbeat later but the old loader was still included in the initial release. To update loaders via WiFi boot up your Acekard and go to Start --> More --> WiFi. Select to update loaders to the latest. The manual method is stated above.

    BAHAMUT is the name of group who dumped the game clean. It is #5018 in the DS release list here at GBATemp & #5076 on other scene sites. Find the download via google, don't ask for links.

    Thanks everyone
    So far so good
    I continued to use my own rom
    I must have not the latest loaders
    Now is that the best place to find up to date loaders
    And what is the best place for cheat.db
    Also is the cheat only for cheats or does it have other system files inside it use I don't really care about the cheats but might as well keep it up to date.

    i think he made the same mistake i did and mistakenly updated 1.7.1 on the loader only, and not the firmware itself (the link to the 1.7.1 firmware on the AKAIO main site's update post isn't very noticeable, in case everyone wanted to know how i made such a noob mistake) or vice-versa. my copy of the DQ9 rom works flawlessly now (the AKAIO staff are miracle workers... or very good hackers)

    You're not crazy, your're running the pre-cracked XENOM release which worked on a majority of cards.
