    I just got a DSi XL. It has firmware 1.4 on it. I am going to purchase an Acekard 2i. What else do I have to do to run homebrew apps and play roms on it ?

    I read this somewhere "Compatible with DSi firmware 1.4 however the system update must be run on a DSL or DSi with firmware 1.3 or lower." - I do not have another DS's.

    Do I need some sort of firmware updater ?

    Thanks.

    Purchase your acekard that's already updated to the 1.4...

    You can get the Acekard pre-updated from some stores; just remember to check the option for it. I know that ShopTemp has that option for a fee ($1). Just get it from there.

    Just buy it from a supplier that updates the card to run on 1.4 for you

    that place
    Yeah, buy it from Shoptemp, and use the "Premium Update/Flashing Service". You'll pay $1 more than the regular price, but then it'll work on your DSi XL.
