    I'm under the impression that the Acekard has firmware updates. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I am currently running firmware 1.2U on the DSi and have an Acekard 2i on the way. Assuming that the Acekard 2i does indeed have firmware updates available, in which order should I do the updates?

    And are Acekard updates performed via computer download, or are they done via Wi-Fi? Thanks.

    The AK firmware has nothing to do with the DSi firmware, as far as I know.
    The AK firmware updates are something you do manually, by downloading from either the acekard website, or by downloading the latest version of akAIO, IIRC.
    DSi firmware updates automatically. For this reason, there is concern that Nintendo will eventually update the DSi, such that flashcarts will be useless.


    edit: You can update the loader via WiFi

    thx dudes. i updated to 1.3u while i was out.

    so if i take my dsi to a hotspot that i've already set up a connection w/ in the past, it won't update the firmware automatically?

    also, if we decide to get dsi wares, do we always need to have the most recent firmware in order to do so?

    Your DSi will not update it's firmware automatically. It will ask you to agree to it everytime. That may change in the future but who knows. If there is a new update available, it will force you to update before it will allow you in the DSiWare shop. Still, it will prompt you before it does.

    BTW, with the AceKard2i, you have a choice between the official firmware or the third party AKAIO firmware which is much better in terms of features, compatiblity, useability.

    Read the AKAIO wiki for more info. It's stickied at the top of the Acekard forum.

    DSi Firmware 1.4 is already out reported by users.

    You're asking if the Acekard 2i's "core" or internals can be upgraded/re flashed. Its possible but the software isn't out to do so though. The kernals or OS is always upgradeable.

    Go to the NDS Hardware topic here and look at it. There's even a video.
    Unless it's some type of glitch.

    It's the thing that loads up your games [​IMG] In many instances, akAIO is better for loading most games, since it has better compatibility than the regular ak loader.


    Also, thank you, lol. I like your avatar, hahaha.
