    I sent the Acekard team an email indirectly asking when the update for 4.3.0-10 is coming and this is what I got today:

    It was obvious they where working on this but i dont know why but the ak team takes too much time to make the updates (compared with to other teams that make the updates in about 24-48hr)

    As explained in other threads the Acekard team are trying to conserve their updates. Unlike the DSTwo, the Acekard has limited space to use for the ROM information that needs to be stored in order to trick the system into thinking it's a DS game. Games that are exploitable using this system are becoming more and more scarce for the Acekard team, so they're trying to strategize when they release their updates in order to keep their card alive longer.

    Personally I think they should just develop another flashcard, perhaps something that can compete with the DSTwo in terms of features or at least something that can hold more ROM information.

    EDIT: Also, I'm almost 100% positive I saw someone else who claimed the same thing like...a week ago.

    Last time they released an update, Nintendo released 4.3 within a few days. It's purely to disable flashcarts.

    Talk about being trolled.

    Well if you just got a new XL and did a system transfer to it, you have to update both 3DSes to 4.3, which is kinda annoying. Really looking forward to this update :D

    I recently bought an Acekard but my 3DS is updated so I've been waiting for the update for so long. I really hope this is true and that it'll come out soon :lol:

    Meh, I just hang on to my old DSlite to play my Acekard on so I don't have to worry about updates.

    I bought a 3DS XL hoping that it would have an outdated firmware, and it does, so I'm able to play my Acekard fine, but I'm still hoping the patch for 4.3 (or possibly 4.4) comes out soon.

    I'd take that e-mail with a grain of salt, it's an automated message, there was some one over on a different forums who had sent the same e-mail three weeks ago and got the same message, what has been said by several others is that they are holding out until another patch arrives which seems very probable.

    Swear it doesnt look like we are gonna see an update anytime soon.....

    The longer they wait, the more likely it seems like it'll just end up before (Update, then new Firmware, then another month wait)

    Really is unfortunate. I find myself checking their site a couple times a day.

    you have to remember that acekard never advertised the flash kit as being updatable. when the first update was released we were all pretty surprised. they could stop releasing updates tomorrow and we would have still had years of use past what was printed on the features list.

    as stated previously, in many threads, all over gbatemp, thanks to rydian, the ak2i uses an older design. it requires data from the game to sit on the card. there is a limited number of roms they can use. if they give us a fix the day after, then nintendo does another back-to-back update, we lose 1 exploit. acekard is starting to wait longer and longer between updates, so perhaps the limited number of roms is actually really limited.

    kind of a bummer one day acekard will be fully blocked. i guess its time to save up for a new flash cart.
