    as i said in a related post, lets not discuss too much or plan ahead...
    or else our homebrew carts will have no chance
    just wait till US version comes out, then we'll hack with rage

    What a sad new. I'm another stupid guy who sold DS lite and have bought AK2i. I was planning to buy DSi next week.

    Do you think AK2i will work with a new firmware on european DSi? If not then I can sell my new AK2i [​IMG]

    I have just been informed by someone at memorybits.co.uk that the R4i has been sucessfully tested on the European DSi. Don't know if this is right, but they are selling them.

    i am so glad about my japanese DSi... [​IMG]
    although... there is not much advantage about the new DS so far. i hope some stand-alone-dsi-games will enter the market soon... [​IMG]

    Its a solid card. Compatible with DSL so its not like were completely outta luck. Those that sold their older models certainly are.

    So how long do you think it will be before we get a new DSi flash cart? I'm picking up a DSi on day 1, and I'm going away on the 18th. Is there a good chance a new one will be out by then?

    Oh, wow. After I saw it working on the Aussie DSi you don't even know how happy I felt. It made me realize how stressed I've been these past few days. Here's hoping for the NA version!

    That was about the European DSi. It might be fake, it might not be. I think it's safe to say that the AK2i does indeed work on the Australian DSi, but we don't know if it will work on the European.

    I think it should be tested again on European DSi to be sure ^^

    Video proof of two different AK2is being tested on a European DSi would help clear many things up, such as if it's a only a few AK2is that work. It would also prove if the AK2i works at all.

    Seriously though, who else saw this coming?

    I mean, Nintendo was gonna do something about the Acekard 2i eventually. Especially since the Acekard Team was (deservedly) boasting it's compatability with the DSi like they were.

    I guess we'll have to depend on the experts to steadily tinker around until they find find a workaround, if they're able to find one. Either that, or order a foreign DSi.

    The whole thing wouldn't fluster me so much if Nintendo never planned on making DSi-exclusive carts. Then I wouldn't have to order a godforsaken DSi in the first place, and I could just stick to Trusty Lite.

    It works on a Euro DSi, I just tested it today [​IMG] Works with AKAIO also. So nothing to worry about, at least not yet.

    can you update the firmware with wifi, visit the dsi store and then try again?

    it still works on my jap dsi with 1.3 firmware, but i dont know about the european.

    guess this story about blocking the ak2i was all a joke
