    sorry to be a pain but i just wanted to make sure i had this right from what i have been reading in this forum/other online sources.

    I am picking up my 3ds and an acekard used tomorrow ( the acekard works on the 3ds) and both have not been updated for 6 months.

    So, would if i am correct would i follow these steps?

    Wipe the micro sd card- and place the newest kernal in the root directory:

    Download AKAIO 1.8.9


    Then i would need to download this :
    Firmware Update of AK2i for console 3DS3.0 and DSi1.4.3

    and install that.

    this would then give me the most current update - and i could then update the physical console itself? or is the firmware update not needed if i get the kernal to begin with? that is where i am a little confused.
    thanks,
    -Andrew

    you are right . Check the version of the kernal before you update i guess is the only way to know if you need to update it.. but definately update the acekard first or you would need another DS to update on .
