    well no shit- of course this was gonna happen!

    anyway, keep your pants on everyone- this is an ongoing battle and never ends with big industry winning- not with the best of us anyway. you watch, this shit will be hacked and gone within a month.

    remember when the DSI first came out? and how people freaked when flash cards didn't work? I STILL don't think that this system is worth the hassle or money. It was getting to easy for card corps and now we will see something interesting going on- there was never this much interest in this years ago.

    once i get my DSL fixed at portage, Michigan, I will be more than willing to "update" my DSi to this 1.4u (when its released) if it means Warioware D.I.Y or Flipnote Studio especially....

    yea, compared to sony, which by this point it seems they have completely given up with their current psps, nintendo really doesn't a chance... and besides im pretty sure some of those nerds apart of the revolution are working on the inside of n of japan.

    That's what I have too. I won't update until either a fix comes out, or we find out if the firmware on the Acekard DSi is upgradeable. I mean, can't they have like a .nds file that can update the firmware? Even with wifi, would work

    There might not be all hope lost for those with non-update-able carts.

    If the DSi is hacked to be able to modify firmware etc (say, eventaully after team twiizers hacking/savegame exploit), you might be able to downgrade or patch the firmware to re-enable your card.

    Of course this is all theoretical. Irregardless, you'll have to wait for more hacking progress or new flashcards (which are pretty cheap anyway).

    Or just not update at all. I don't use the DSiShop right now, and the facebook thing isn't exciting. Not a worth-it update.

    i was wondering... in order for them to improve the camera resolution, would they have to release a new version of dsi's or could they do it via a future update?

    So, the Acekard 2i can get an update that fix this? No rushing, I haven't updated, probably never will. Nothing DSi exclusive will ever come out.

    Only thing I am waiting for is Pokemon HeartGold and Pokemon SoulSilver. Sadly for Nintendo, JP, NA or EU or any other release of those games won't be DSi exclusive, so it won't force an update.

    Geez. No, it's not possible to upgrade the hardware with software, and nor will it ever be.

    Not strictly true, if it's DSi-enhanced (or it can detect that it's running on a DSi) then it can force an update. I'd be careful of that.

    I don't think they can force an update since not everyone has wi-fi.

    Oh well this was bound to happen sooner or later. I got Acekard2i but are not bothered about this FW upgrade at all. Still got so many games to play in the existing catalogue.

    I think before people can assume that hacking the DSi can be done simply, we have to remember that the DSi is not Wii or PSP here, so it won't be that easy. All we can do is simply wait, instead of coming up with theories... [​IMG]

    Even a forced updated can still be aborted in the process.

    Also, can Acekard 2i firmware be updated? I doubt they would have made the flashcart if it's not updatable.
