    Nintendo DSi XL
    I got today "Acekard 2i (Ak2i) Flash Cart for Nintendo DSi". Because I have 1.4 Ver I need to install : "AK2i Updater for V1.4 " but discovered that I dont have PIN code. I dont know who installed, maybe by mistake or children did that.
    How can I reset these code? I also tried from setup menu: it gave me some code and ask for master code ....?? Need to call for support , but not able to call to service .
    Maybe you can tell me another way to reset ?
    Thank you !

    Can you reset the device to factory settings without that PIN?
    EDIT: Nvm, you should look in the post Aragon gave [​IMG]

    Least Restrictive parental control settings blocks these right off the bat.

    --- In the Settings Channel ---
    Internet Settings (Where your Wifi connection is configured.)
    Country
    System Update
    Format System Memory.

    And I believe it also blocks accidental Shop account deletion as well. Not 100% certain of that though, as I am too chicken to try.

    Hello.. I recently bought a nintendo dsi off of ebay and the ding bat never took the parental question and pin off. I can play games but I would really like to make it my own. I read info on formatting and it lead me to calibrate it. It changed to date and time but nothing more. I then later followed the link posted abv to reset I entered the confirmation num and it gave me a 5 digit code for pin. Im thinking that the link is only for the wii. Can someone please help me the person at ebay is not replying. Maybe I should give them a bad sellers review. Please help. [​IMG]

    that place
    The Wii uses the same algorithm as the DSi for parental codes, so that link should work. I tried it before, and it worked for me.

    EDIT: Also, why did you have to bump a 8-month-old thread?
