    Been looking at getting a DSiXL and wondering if the current DSi (1.4 compatible) flashcarts would work on it...

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Yep.

    It's a just big DSi. No software changes.

    Yes they do, there is no difference in firmware compared to a Dsi

    Any flashcart working on 1.4 will work on a DSi XL.

    I know that it should, but I was just wondering if there was a firmware update on the XLs that the regular DSis didn't have before release [​IMG]

    The EZVi had a small issue quite a while ago, but firmware v15 fixed that, for the [805] version anyway.

    Not so fast - if your Vi is HARDWARE VERSION 805 and you have updated the to FIRMWARE VERSION 15 you should have no problems.
    BUT (and I know this from personal experience), if your Vi is HARDWARE 705 it will not update to FIRMWARE 15 - when attempted it says UPDATE NOT NECESSARY. BUT (and this is the BIG but) it will NOT work properly on the DSiXL. It will load properly but every game I have tested - and many others that other users have tested - will freeze up within a few minutes. There does not seem to be any rhime or reason for the amount of time it takes to freeze, though older titles seem to last a bit longer.
    The EZFlash guys are working on an update to firmware 15 that will work on the 705 hardware, but it is not available yet.

    Me too! I tried my acekard out yesterday, and have been playing it without any problems in my DSi XL.

    Yup, and I downloaded the 1.45 update (that weird update that doesn't change the version number), and my Danny Phantom Acekard's working fine.

    Cool! I have a Star Wars DSTTi-ADV, but, either way, it should work because I've used it on a friends DSi 'mini' (lol)

    Place a couple layers of tape on the bottom of the label side to make the contact touch better.

    Sometimes I have the same problem with mine. I have heard the DSi XL slot is slightly larger. Thus the acekard doesn't always make contact. Try Rydian's suggestion.

    Just got my Itouch2 for the DSiXL, and it works, save for not being able to close the DS. instead of going to sleep, it turns off. Hoping that a new fm will fix that. Anyone else seen that problem?

    There's probably settings for that.
