    I have two DS's. One is 1.4.3U DSi and 1.4.1U DSi XL.
    I downloaded 1.8.8 Firmware update for Ak 2i and updated it on 1.4.1U xl. However it is still not readable by 1.4.3 DSi. So what to do?
    I really want to install Four Swords on my XL and keep playing on Acekard.
    So?

    1) download file from above
    2) extract the updaters (both .nds files)
    3) depending on the system that you're using to update, chose the correct update file. Use "ak2ifw_update_3ds21__DSi143_onDSL_NO44.nds" if updating on a phat or lite. Use "ak2ifw_update_3ds21__DSi143_onDSi_NO44.nds" if updating on a dsi or 3ds.
    4) launch the updater on your acekard 2i just like any other .nds file
    5) do as prompted and wait.

    I'm supposed to put it in _aio/Loaders, right? Do I delete the other files? Am I supposed to rename it?

    No, don't put it in aio\loaders. Just put it in the root or your game folder or w/e. It's not like it's going to auto-boot into the updater when you turn the ds on. You have to navigate to where you put the updater and launch it, just like booting any other .nds game.
