    Hey guys, I put Pokemon black 2 nds file in my acekard 2i. An error came up and now the DS cannot read the acekard. Does this mean that it is bricked? Would a simple format and reinstalling the acekard files allow it to be read again?

    Thanks :)

    It might be bricked, yeah. No, reinstalling AKAIO won't fix it, you need to actually re-flash/update the firmware on the cart itself.

    And you'll need another flash cart to do that.

    It could be a lot of stuff,
    but if it was working before, it might be a SD card problem.
    Try re-downloading Akaio and overwrite it in the SD card.
    If that doesn't work try doing the paper trick,
    if that doesn't work, try reflashing your Acekard with the newest firmware;

    From Where???
    it seems that pokemon black 2 is causing issues. the AP routine in akaio maybe causing this game to overwrite a part of the bootloader. you'll need to follow the guide for reflashing your ak2i to get it working again. after that it is recommended to try pokemon black 2 with AP turned off. try running a pre-patched copy of the game and format your msd card with a 16k cluster size.
