    I bought an acekard 2i a few weeks ago for my new DSi but as it turns out, my DSi was updated to 1.4u and I didn't know you needed at least 1.3 firmware or a dsl to update the card so I can use it. I'm going to order another one with a a pre-updated memory card. The problem is that I'm not too sure which site I should choose. I found one at 0shippingzone.com, shoptemp.com and leetmod.com.

    At 0shippingzone I can get it pretty cheap, and with pre-updated memory, compared to the other two. I just want to make sure with you guys that it's legit and I'm getting a working, real card. Also, is 4 GB enough? That's the highest they offer a 0shippingzone. Thanks. [​IMG]

    I bought one from 0shipping about a month and a half ago. Was completely legit, and they even threw in a free extendable stylus!

    All 3 shops are fine and sell genuine carts, but bear in mind that LeetMod is in the US while the other 2 are in HongKong. So shipping times will be lower from LeetMod.

    4GB is fine, should be enough for 50-100 (trimmed) ROMS.

    If you have a little cash up front, some people have gone and bought a used or new DS Lite to run the firmware update and then returned it when they were done. If you don't feel right about doing that, I would either do Shoptemp (if not in a rush) or Realhotstuff (faster ship). Realhotstuff charges a little more, but the shipping is free & fast within the US at least.

    US$16.50 -Ships from China- http://shoptemp.com/products/Acekard-2i-Ca...e-DSi-p-30.html
    US$22.00 -Ships from New Jersey- http://www.realhotstuff.com/acekard-free-shipping-p-321.html
