    Hey guys,

    I have a brand new DSi with Ace2Kard i. The DSi has 1.4U installed on it which from what I've been reading stops the ability of the Ace2Kard being used.

    My question is what steps do I need to do to get this working?

    I know that I need to get some files from here: http://www.acekard.com/download.php#ak2 but i'm not sure exactly which ones and what exactly do I need to do with them.

    I'm completely new to the DSi scene so any step by step tutorial would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks very much for the link. I followed it. However, whenever I try to boot the ace2kardi it comes up with a black screen with the error:

    An error has occurred. Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off. Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations Manual for help troubleshooting.

    The update has to be installed on either a DSLite (DS Phat works too) or a DSI running a firmware less than 1.4u. After the compatibility update has been applied then it will work with the 1.4u firmware.

    Okay thanks! I found the fixes in the tutorial listed above. So say I'm going to apply the 1.4fix for my DSi however my friend only has a DSL do i use the DSL fix on the SD card or do I use the DSi fix? I'm assuming you use whichever system you're on at that time?
