    is pre-flashed 3DS 2.0?

    I am asking because,

    1. I don't want to brick or some how damage the cart or system.
    2. I don't have a DS Phat/DSL/DSi/DSiXL.

    Look at the website you ordered it from. Did it say "pre-flashed for 3DS" on the page? If not, then it's not pre-flashed.

    Okay there's no need for you to be so harsh. He honestly may not know. You were a novice once so dont hate on him.


    Edit: The Cat pretty much got it in a nutshell

    And another thing. m3rox Your logic makes no sense. If what you're saying is correct then i shouldnt be able to play DS games on my 3DS because it doesnt say "Works on 3DS"

    1. If it's not flashed it won't damage the card.
    2. Check the site or ask if it's pre-flashed. If it's not, see if you can request a flash to the latest firmware. Some sites allow you to have it flashed before it's shipped.

    That wasn't harsh at all.

    Also, you're an idiot. Your argument is so damn flawed it's laughable. I could sit here and flame you, but I'm not in the mood (my grandmother passed away this morning). So, have fun being so uneducated you can't even figure out what you are arguing about.

    I wasn't yelling at him, I was typing a message. There's a HUGE difference. Perhaps you'll learn that someday in the distant future.

    1. even if you brick your acekard 2i, you'll be able to un-brick it by flashing it with the updater and another working flashcart. Your 3DS won't brick; that's just some rumor.
    2. Of course, you can ask your dealer to preflash it for you, but I'd recommend getting a DS phat/lite from somebody or buy one. DS phats are generally around ~$60 and lites recently dropped to ~$100 (although you can probably get a used one for a lower price). The reason I recommend buying one is because you'll probably need it when a new firmware that blocks flashcarts is released, which is obviously bound to happen again.

    EDIT: also, you can tell if your cart is pre-flashed to work on 3DS 2.0.0-2 by it's icon. The icon will say acekard 2i when inserted into a DS phat or lite. I unfortunately don't know what the icon is for DSi or 3DS, as I don't have a DSi or 3DS. :/

    Maybe somebody else can help you on identifying the icon?

    believe me, you may brick your card with incorrect method, but you won't brick your 3DS console! by thw way, you can ask the reseller to do the pre-flash for you and also you can find some sites which already sell pre-flashed cards , just take a look here digitopz , it is one of them who sells pre-flashed!
