    Planning on getting a used 3DS. I have an old AK2i from a few months before the 3DS was released. Will it still work with the 3DS or do I need a newer one?

    possibly. the only issue is that no model of AceKard has been updated to work with the 3DS firmware 4.4.0, so it would only work if the 3DS had a firmware lower than that. the AceKard team says that they're working on it, but it's been a while and people are having their doubts that they will release a patch.

    and of course, only if it is a legitimate AceKard2i with a sticker on its back. the original models without the sticker from before the DSi was released in North America hasn't been updated in ages.

    Yeah the 3DS will need to be 4.3.x or lower, if it's higher the AK2i won't work (there's no further updates).

    Also do note that newer 3DS games and such will try to update the 3DS before you can play them.
