So, like the topic says, I just got my son a DSI for his birthday. My wife and I both have regular old NDS's with Acekard 2.1. So here are my questions: 1. Not sure what firmware his machine shipped with (haven't charged the battery yet), but what is the safest f/w that is okay with AKAIO 1.71? I assume that it is AKAIO that I use? 2. How does the machine update? I will never hook it up to wireless, so I'm not concerned about that. Do the games force updates? Will I be prompted so I can decline? I think that's it. I'm sure if I searched I could find these answers, but as with most of my questions, you guys always seem helpful, and that in turn saves me a lot of time. Time I don't seem to have to exhaustively search for answers. So......Thanks in advance for any help. It is appreciated.
