    Slow down there!
    The DSi will not run conventional DS flashcards, you will require one that is DSi compatible.
    Currently, I'd get the AK2i. Only if I really had to.
    And yes, the DSi can block flashcards with firmware updates (in theory). We haven't actually had such an update so far, but that might change on April 5.

    Yes, Nintendo can block DSi flashcarts using a firmware update.
    The Acekard 2i is a good option and if you don't go online (or block the update server in your router) you should be save.

    No body said that. Hes just saying the DSi will launch on April 5 in America and it's possible it could come with a new firmware that could potential block the flash cart. In my opinion its possible just not plausible. Chances are there wont be much difference from the existing firmware.
