    I need help with some acekard issues. my 3ds firmware is 2.1.0.4 and my ak is still not working even though i downloaded the 1.8.8 firmware.
    for some reason, ( sorry for being a noob) when i turn my system on ( Dsi) it says 1.8.7.
    any advice on how to fix it?

    Have you tried playing some games with it and trying to see if the gaming works?

    IIRC its just the standard theme they doesn't change. So the background states 1.8.7 even thought its 1.8.8

    Have you tried updating the kernel instead of just the firmware?

    Actually I'm also new to this :P

    I am just copying this from the GBATEMP wiki:

    First download this file: http://www.acekard.c...ds21_DSi143.zip

    EDIT: After you have done this follow the Quick guide setup on AKAIO: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/AKAIO#Quick_Guide

    If none of this works I fear something is wrong with the Acekard or I'm just to nooby to solve the problem.

    Don't you mean the other way round? AKAIO is the kernel and he has already updated that so he needed to update the firmware/bootstrap which he has done and has now worked.

    Have fun googs.
