    Maybe it's a dumb question: When I switch on my NDS lite with my new Acekard2i, the Start-Screen "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" appears. How can I boot directly to AKAIO-menu without touching that screen? (at my old DSTT-card, I dont have to do that)?

    Thanks in advance,
    Kermit

    Sure? Every DSTT-card seem to do that without problems (Just a smiley is shown for a short time)? So I never saw this nag-screen in the last time. Now it's really nerving me!

    It's just the Acekard way of doing things.

    there is really no software switch at AKAIO to disable that screen?

    There's a complicated process of taking out your battery and resetting the BIOS, etc.

    Hm, I've got 2 NDSlite. At the first one, I could install flashme. I had to use a 1K resistor. Just shorting didn't work.
    At the second one, I'm not able to install flashme. I already tried shorting, 1K resistor, 820R, 680R. Nothing works. Progress 0% [​IMG]

    How did you make your flashing tool and did you make sure you were flashing the right area?

    But... it takes like not even 2 seconds to skip that and get to the games section of your card...

    I'm not saying anything, but are you really that finicky about it?

    most if not all cards made for the DSi do not skip the ds firmware, it's just the way they're designed. I rather like having it go to the ds menu without taking out my card to do so, in case I need to access my settings or use pictochat, etc.

    There is just one flashing tool: http://home.comcast.net/~olimar/flashme/
    And you can't select an area or something else.
    The SL1 contact under the batterie-cover isn't hard to reach. It's not very deep. I tried a smal screwdriver and a pair of tweezers to short. The pins of a resitor are easy to form, so they are parallel. There was no problem at my first ndsl. If you loose contact, the progress percentages just stop as described. It continues when the resistor ist recontacted, so it's hard to destroy anything (as long as you don't loose power)

    I normally use a tooth pick with the end cut off, a little tin foil being held on/insolated with a little tape to short mine

    I created a shorting tool from part of a bent small paper clip. I wrapped it in tape to set the spacing between the "leads" and some on top so that I don't add resistance. Works every time.

    Just do the soft-mod. It's so simple.

    I need the DS-Menu for Downloading Games! And I also want to use the correct time. So I won't use the Soft-Mod.

    And I definitely shorted the contacts of my second ndsl, but it don't work (no begining of progress-counting). So I also don't need any other shorting-tool

    Maybe just stop whining and deal with it because it's just, 'one of those things'.....
