    My son is wanting a dsi for Christmas.
    I have soft modded his Wii so I am planning on using the acekard2i with his dsi.

    I have already ordered him a acekard2i from Deal Extreme but I am now unsure that it is going to work with his dsi when I get it as I am pretty sure it is going to come with the 1.4 firmware.

    I have since noticed that NDS card shop are advertising their acekard2i as preloaded with firmware that will work with the dsi's with 1.4 firmware.

    What I am wanting to know is can I download this firmware that will make the ak2i work with the dsi from anywhere? or am I going to have to buy another ak2i card from nds card shop?

    I am a noob on the ds side so any help is appreciated

    Yes. You can update the ones from dealextreme. Just go to my stickied tutorial. And look for the "How to update your acekard2i to work on dsi 1.4 firmware". Just make sure your sons DSi isn't at firmware 1.4 or it wont work. If it's new, I doubt it is.

    but by cchristmas the dsi might come with 1.4 but the aks from dx also have the 1.4 fix applied but who knows when 1.5 pops up

    Thanks for the advice.

    So if I can get a dsi sooner rather than later it is still likely to have the 1.3 firmware.

    Thanks for the offer



    The acekard hasn't arrived yet but when it does from what I have read I think I will be installing the akaio software.
