Hello, I'm new to the forums having just spent a fair amount trolling trying to find the answer to my question. Hopefully it hasn't been asked before and if so, please feel free to direct me there. My question is this: I just purchased a new 3DS with FW 1.0.0-0U, having not updated it at all yet, and I was wondering if purchase the 2i, will I be good to go or is there anything else I need to do? I do not own any other DS models (although I'm not sure if I need to; just having seen so many posts about updating the card with one has me wondering). In another post I saw a suggestion to use the reseller leetmod.com and have them update to v1.4.3 for $1 more. I downloaded the ak2ifw_update_3ds21_DSi143_onDSi_NO44.nds file as well as the Akaio 1.8.7 which I assume is the iLividSetupV1.exe file. Do I need to worry about that .nds file if I get the v1.4.3 from leetmod.com? Long story short (I know, too late), I want to be "reasonably" assured that when I purchase the Acekard 2i for a never updated, brand new 3DS, that it will work. I see the noob install guide but as it speaks solely to the older models, I'm not sure if that is still completely accurate for my situation. Again, hopefully this wasn't already asked and I appreciate any feedback. Also, one side question: What is AKAIO in relation to using the Acekard? Do I run that first and then the icon in the 3DS menu? Thank you!
