    Sup guys,

    I recently purchased a used DSi XL for my 5yr old son to replace the one he lost. However, the one I purchased has version 1.4.5U installed and my acekard 2i won't work with it. I guess it's because of the different version installed on this DSi. Is there anyway I can update the firmware on the acekard 2i to make it compatible? I've done some research but am getting mixed information.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry, the Acekard dead for one more years, so, nobody make update or support Acekard 2i now.
    And it max support V1.4.4 firmware.
    So, recommend the R4i gold 3DS for you, it one of the most popular and cheap flash carts.

    If you need better card, Supercard DSTwo is the best choice, best and powerful one.

    both cards above can work perfect on you V1.4.5 DSi XL.

    Thanks guys, you have been an immense help. I ended up ordering the R4i Gold flash card from BestR4i3DS.com.

    One last question, are the instructions to install the newest V1.64 Wood Kernel to R4i Gold 3DS on BestR4i3DS.com current?

    to install wood kernel is very easy.
    download Wood v1.64, unzip it, copy all files to root of your memory card,
    then copy .nds roms to root of memory card too,
    then run by r4i gold 3DS, all is ok!

    I received my R4i gold 3DS card from BestR4i3ds.com. When i go to the site and follow the instructions to download the latest wood V1.64 it asks me to login to an FTP server. However, i do not have a login name or password and it doesnt let me login anonymously? These are the instructions. How can i download the wood kernel?

    R4i Gold team released the new wood kernel V1.64 ,with the new R4i wood kernel, you can play more games with r4i gold 3ds card.
    Now, please follow the steps to update your r4i gold 3ds card to this latest version.
    Step 1 Download the latest wood V1.64 from here
    Step 2 After you download the Wood kernel, just extract it and get the firmware files.
    Step 3 Put all the files on the root of your sd card, make sure put them on the root directory so you can use the card.
    Step 4 put your games on the sd card.
    if you already have the previous wood files on the sd card, you can just put the latest one to replace the old files.
