    This is a weird glitch, I was playing with the card, in other wards pushing it in and out, and the DSi menu NOT NDSL/NDSP suddenly said "Acekard 2i - www.acekard.com". Wtf? I already patched the card for 1.4 too. I put it back out and in, then the Danny Phantom icon comes back. Wtf did i just do? o_o Weird Glitch...

    A few people report it, and also there's a glitch reported in the Camera function which can also cause the Acekard to appear as Acekard in the DSi menu.

    If it works, don't tinker with it.

    Well the icon on DS Lite/Phat still says Acekard 2i even after 1.4 patch. Maybe the card identifies it as DS Lite/Phat, whatever.

    I'd rather them put the AceKard 2i logo instead of the Danny Phantom ...

    But then it wouldn't work with DSi 1.4. And then its 'DSi compatibility' would be pointless.

    The cart is smart enough to detect this.

    Umm, that Danny Phantom icon IS the 1.4 fix.

    He means a 1.4 fix that uses the AceKard 2i icon.

    The feasibility of which confuses me.
    I understand that they need the Danny Phantom (or any legit game) header info to bypass the DSi check... but it seems that the Action Replay DSi does something similar but (?)keeps the Action Replay DSi name/logo(?).
    It kind of sounds to me like it would be POSSIBLE, but more work than is needed.

    Where intellect matters
    I think it's that making it work without using danny phantom or such is a lot more work. That or the action replay is actually using the header info from an old action replay version that wasn't blocked. I can't exactly remember how the DSi detected if the cart was a flashcart or not, but there was an article about it on hackmii a while back.

    Nope, it uses a header from Game & Watch Collection. It copies the icon, the name, everything that flashcarts usually copy (answering the thing between the question marks).

    Datel will get sued most likely for exploiting the DSi and using a Nintendo header. Unlike all flashcarts, they all have Headers that arent by Nintendo.

    EDIT: Besides, what happened to this thread, this is totally off topic of what my issue was. o_o

    The topic has taken it's "natural" course of getting into altered header info...
    Lot of people don't like Danny Phantom for some reason, and I can understand the want to have their choice of header info on the cart.

    As for them getting sued... I kind of doubt it.
    If it was going to happen, it would have been in the works already.

    so basicly if we want the cart to boot in DSi mode we swap the header & rom id around on a DS cart game?

    I wonder if theres a way to make the DSi think its using a nintendo header but it really isn't. that would be cool i guess

    That's what all DSi 1.4 compatible carts do already.
    Action Replay DSi
    Acekard2i
    M3i Zero
    Supercard DSONEi/DSTWO
    (list goes on...)

    No. They DO use a game header.

    That's why you get game icon/names when they're in a DSi, for example AceKard2i's Danny Phantom logo/name.

    speaking of which...it's funny that Nintendo has released no further firmware updates to add more features and things to make the DSi a better experience...

    this proves that firmware updates were not to add more features...it was just a way of blocking flashcarts

    ...you son of a bitch.

    Too busy working on ANOTHER DS hardware revision...
    DS / DS Lite / DSi / DSi XL / 3DS -- They gotta keep pumping out new hardware for us to buy!
