    I tried updating it and it just bricked on me. How can I unbrick it? I need step by step.. I am slow... I tried it on my DSi but I have a DSL and an extra acekard. So how can I unbrick it with those?

    Where intellect matters
    Take the other acekard and put the updater on that and run it on the DSL and then use that to update your acekard2i.

    So I put the DSL update on my acekard then update it in the DSL. Then just put it back in my DSi?

    Instead of using ak2i_fw_1.4_DSi.nds use ak2i_fw_1.4_DSL.nds
    Put that on your WOKING acekard in your DSLITE and run the ak2i_fw_1.4_DSL.nds

    When it askes to eject or what ever, switch acekards and then continue.
    It should be working fine now [​IMG]

    Bricked means broke... as in you broke hardware, so no amount of software can fix that.

    WTF!?! Anyway, bricking is blowing a power bridge in the AK.

    A bricked item is technically any item rendered inoperable, but some of the bricks, such as a damaged firmware, are reversible. On the other hand, some bricks are permanent and without replacing major components, the device ends up as a paperweight.

    Yeah sure okay, you're totally right.

    Bricking is nothing to do with the carts internal firmware at all. Oh my, my iPhone has just got a cracked screen! It must be bricked!

    Erm, I don't think so. I have a lot of useful sites like that bookmarked. I can't tell you them, they're saved for the very most special of noobs.

    Bricked means a device, in this case, an AK2i, is as useful as a brick, it does nothing.

    You can brick something with hardware, or software.
    I bricked my DS when doing modification to it and sent a serge through it and blew the fuse.

    In this case, he has an acekard with a corrupted boot loader.
    Which is software.
