    I've been using my AK2i for about a year without any problems, but the last week when I was playing my rom, it got froze, I turned the DSi off and turned back on. My AK2i didn't load at all, it just show in the top screen a white screen, and in the bottom screen a black screen, and it didn't pass of there. [​IMG]

    I've formatted my Sandisk micro SD several times, put the lastest Akaio and nothing, it stills the same; no menu, no black screen with "Loading" , no error message, no nothing. [​IMG]
    I had tried the paper trick and it don't helped either.
    Also I tried using a older version of Akaio and the Official "firmware", but nothing. [​IMG]

    The Acekard is detected by the DSi so I don't think that it is a contact problem.
    It is updated for the 1.4.1U.
    It is not clone, I think. I've already cheked it.



    I don't know why it stopped working suddenly. What could be the problem? Is the micro SD the problem or the AK2i?
    I really need your help.


    Sorry for my english if there is an ortographic error or something.

    Use another flash cart to re-apply the 1.4.1 update.

    What can I do if I can't get another flashcard? And why I need to re-apply the 1.4.1 firmware update?

    I believe he means another ds

    Compatible DS's:
    Original DS(i hate calling it the DS Phat)
    Ds lite
    DSi/XL that is UNDER 1.4

    Away from you.
    Check that the Ak2i is genuine. (if you've been using it for more than a year then I guess it would have a windowed shell and an Actel chip), or it may have no window and a little black glue circle.

    If no, demand a refund and get a new cart.
    If yes, continue.

    Then use a DS Phat, Lite or DSi(XL/LL) under 1.4 to apply the 1.4.1 firmware update.

    If it doesn't work, umm... er... use a different DS.
    If it does, TADA!

    No, Rydian means what he says. If the only flashcard he had was an AK2i that DIDN'T work, how is another system with the same card going to be any different? However a combination of the two would prove to be effective. We're asking you to reflash the bootloader because it may have gotten corrupted when the ROM froze using a different flashcard and perhaps another system that the alternative flashcard is compatible with. If such is available, redownload the 1.4.1 update and use the DSL version on the alternative card. Eject the alternative when asked to during the update and input the AK2i.
