    So my friend had an ak2i that he doesn't use anymore. so he sold it to me with a 2gb microsd.

    Are there any emulators for the acekard2i?
    Specifically gba, any others are also good.
    and dont mention lameboy i already got it.

    and could anyone recommend any good homebrew?

    there is no gba emulator... if there was it likely wouldn't work well anyway. If you want gba on your DS you'd need to buy a slot 2 flash cart. The acekard is a slot 1, meaning it goes into the DS slot.

    My favorite homebrew is moonshell 2.10 child zwai edition. It lets u view photots, listen to mp3 music, watch dpg format videos, edit text and a bunch of other stuff... even record your voice using the ds' mic.

    other good homebrew is dsreader... its an ebook reader.....

    there's also dsnotes... let's you take notes lol...

    that's pretty much all I use... I don't boterh with emus on ds since I have a hacked PSP and it has great emulators for all ym favorite old systems..

    Alright, thanks for all the info. Before I go off though, like is there anyway to us the SD card in th DSi to my advantage?
    Maybe run emulators and roms from there...?

    ANd darn I can't think of any DS game I want...
    And I also noticed certain DS games don't work...
    anyway possible way to fix that?

    No. You get NONE of the DSi's extra features with any current flash card.

    No, Black and White with the Anti-AP (Or whatever it's called) on in version 1.8.5/1.8.2 work fine.

    Oh...? well Im not even sure what the firmware is. All I got was the ak2i patch for firmware1.4.1 on the dsi (so that it still runs and stuff)

    That just makes the AceKard2i work on an updated DSi. You still need the latest AKAIO and the latest loaders to play all the latest games.
