    I upgraded to the latest firmware on my DSi and now my Acekard with AKAIO 1.7 firmware no longer works. Any solutions for a the stupid test that I tried on a working system.

    Thanks!

    What did you you upgrade, only the DSI to 1,4, or only the Akaio to 1,7, or both ?

    I did both but the card worked after i upgraded it to 1.7. upgrading the DSi is what messed things up. i think i found a solution. a site said to download ak2ifw_update_14_DSi.nds file. i am trying it now.

    yeah... you fall into the ''DSI 1,4 trap''
    DSI new firmware isn't allowing you to use Acekard and other carts like Acekard...
    to get your cart working you need to follow this tutorial
    Updating the Acekard 2i's firmware to 1.4

    You need a DS or DS Lite to upgrade your Acekard. Sorry to say this but you are out of hope. (Unless you have a DS or DS Lite)

    lol, why did you even do it??? anyway, i guess you just bricked your ak2i (well, in the "playing on a DSi" sense, anyway)

    Download this update and place the ak2ifw_update_14_DSi_new.nds on your MicroSD. Find a DS Lite/Phat/DSi 1.3 and pop in your AK2i. Execute the file, press whatever button it says to run the update, & viola, you're done.
