    Hi,

    I just dusted off my old DSi and insterted the acekard 2i. I was going to update its firmware, however it somehow got stuck for almost an hour (at 5%) so i pressed reset. I apparently shouldnt have done that since now the acekard shows up as a blank icon with no text whatsover (in the ds menu). When i press the "run game/cartridge button" it goes black and tells me "An error has occured".

    Is there anyway to fix this or is it broken?
    Can i reset the firmware of the acekard 2i by using a DSlite, if i manage to get my hands on one?
    Can i force the cartridge to run the firmware update or something like that?
    Am I screwed and have to buy a new acekard?

    Thanks
    Regards LL

    You should try and run it on a DS lite and update from it.
    If that doesnt work, run the update file from another Ak2 and when it tells you to take out the cartridge and put it back, put back your broken one and update it :)

    No problem. Upgrading it using another flashcart should definetely work.

    If this AK unit works before update than it shoul work after re-update via DSL. Don't worry.

    And running the update file doesn't even need to be from another AK2i. As long as you're using a DS Lite, you could even go so far as to use a cheap-o R4 to launch the update, then swap it out for your AK2i and actually proceed with it. But it absolutely should work.
