    its more lazy. you could have googled and found any number of threads across multiple forums discussing using the ak2i on the 3ds.

    Example

    As long as the acekard has been updated to work with the latest 3ds firmware, then yes.

    the firmware blocks the flash kit from booting, but once the flash kit boots it runs in ds-mode. this is an ongoing battle between nintendo and the flash kit developers. currently the latest dsi firwmare and 3ds firmware provide no challenge, supported flash kits will boot just fine.

    Not yet, the Acekard team is yet to release their bootloader update for the Acekard, it will come probably in the next two weeks or so.
    As of yet it works with 3DS 4.2.0-9 with the latest bootloader update, which you can download on their website (acekard.com).

    Look at the timestamp, I got ninja'd, SHEESH! /sarcasm
    I didn't do it on purpose, and nobody mentioned that it doesn't work with the latest firmware update 4.3.0-10, so there.
    Anyway just read that the 3DS XL comes with firmware 3.1.0-6 out of the box, so he should be able to get his Acekard working, if he can get his Acekard updated and doesn't update his 3DS XL until the new bootloader update is out.

    Now it can't for now
    We're waiting for Acekard 2i firmware update.

    Acekard Team was once one of the bests,
    but now they are lazy as hell,
    and make updates so late that even 3DS updates faster then they.

    I wonder what happened

    You might want to read the thread before repeating what has already been said.

    In fact, I posted to question why it takes so long to update the firmware of AK2i.
    And why it was so fast before compared to now.
    I hoped someone with more information could explain this to me.

    Yes, and I'm just addressing the fact that your answering a question already answered.

    Indeed I did that, but what's so bad about it?
