    No.

    You need one of these two things.
    [*]A DS unit that will currently boot the flash cart.[*]A DS unit that allows cart swapping, and another flash cart that runs on it.
    1 is not true with you, and 2 is not true with the 3DS (no cart swap).

    I have one DSi XL and need to update Acekard2i to the 1.4.2 firmware. Am I screwed?

    Yep, if it's already on 1.4.2 you're screwed. You'll need a 3DS less than v2.0.0-2, a DSi less than 1.4.2, a DS Lite or a DS Phat. borrow one?

    We should start writing a guide on borrowing DS lites/phats from people. Way too many people have been needing it recently.

    I suppose if I had an issue I'd just ask my friends at Gamestop for a used DS I could borrow for like 10 seconds. The Gamestop 'people' are ok really. Just regular people with a crappy job. As 'employees' they're annoying but they have to be because of all the stupid shit the regional managers make them do. While I despise Gamestop as an organisation, the people working there are ok (though of course you end up with the occasional douche bag in any working place [​IMG])
