    Make sure you're on AKAIO 1.8.6a, format your SD with the panasonic formatter, and use the paper trick.

    Make sure you're using the DSi version unless you need to swap AND are on a DS/DSLite.
    Make sure none of your buttons are stuck (this happened to me once) and that you're not accidentally holding a button down.

    I had this problem with AKAIO 1.8.6a. I temporarily used the old firmware from the Acekard website and the update was successful; then I switched back to AKAIO.

    I managed to find another DSi and after some improvising, I finally applied the 1.4.2 update. The improvising I am referring to is the fact that I had install the old Acekard2i 4.23 firmware (in ak2_423_20100721_release.zip) to run the 1.4.2 update, and then remove the 4.23 stuff before adding AKAIO 1.8.7.
