    So, my parents are at Hong Kong now and I wanted to ask them to buy Acekard 2i for me. Whether if they are selling is another problem but that's not urgent.

    I was wondering if it could work on my DSi 1.41U.

    Another sticky thread stated

    I don't understand the bolded part. Is it that if I buy the Acekard 2i I can't get it to work or something? Please reply ASAP

    Thanks in advance,
    EvangelionEX

    Okay so what is basically translates to is,
    Nintendo releases updates right and those updates give your dsi new features (sometimes) and increse the anti-piracy security(stops flashcarts from working) the newest update is 1.4.1 which is what your ds is updated to.
    BUT
    your acekard can still work it just needs to be updated, it can only be updated though with a dsi that isnt on 1.4.1 otherwise the anti piracy security blocks the card from working, or a dslite or dsphat.

    All you need to do it find one of these

    If your DSi is over firmware 1.3, you will need to update the card so that it can work.
    But to update the card, you need to have a DS lite, DS phat, or DSi that is on FW 1.3 or lower.
    If you don't have one of these, borrow a friend's. If none of your friends have it, shoptemp is your only choice.
    The reason you need a DS that is not a DSi>1.3 is because you need a device that can run it in order to update it.
    There's a stickied guide somewhere on here, and it's very clear. You should be able to easily understand it.

    Which means even if I buy an Acekard 2i right now I can't use it(without borrowing my friend's DS)?

    From Where???
    no, because some shops will flash the card for you (for a fee). you should contact your reseller and ask if they will update it for the dsi. if they won't then, yes, you will need to borrow a ds lite or ds phat to flash your card. flashing takes about 30 seconds and is really easy. so if you can borrow one it will only need to be for about a minute.

    So, what should I tell? Because I'm not in Hong Kong so ask the shop thus I have to ask my parents to help me.
