My acekard is broken because of a game named hakuouki ds. I was playing the game then i push the power button of the dsi and there was no icon appearing in the dsi menu.

I've no idea what else you can do. I believe someome else had the same issue, you could do a search for the thread and ask them if they were able to fix it.

You don't need a MicroSD card in the bricked Acekard 2i, it shouldn't make a difference if one is present or not. It won't be reading or writing to the MicroSD card, only on the other cart which is used to launch the update.

Wood, I think it also worked with Official V1.18 but I would have to check. However, my cart was bricked from where I was messing around with firmware updates rather than from one of these 512MB games.

If you are stuck, many of your problems can be solved by consulting the AKAIO WIKI It has everything you ever need to know about AKAIO.


I'm going on record by saying that Namco Museum DS, Konami Classics series Arcade hits, Sonic Rush Adventure (Minor screen problem, only the intro is affected), Pac 'n Roll, Mario Hoops, the 2 "Dragon-Ball Origins" games, Yoshi's Island DS, GTA Chinatown Wars, all of the "Ace Attorney"s, Bleach: Dark Souls, Bleach: Blades of fate, Sonic chronicles, and Sega and Sonic All-stars Racing work either perfectly, or with minor problems on a DS lite.

You don't need to record which games work and which don't. Since AKAIO's game compatibility is so high, its generally a given the game will work 100% unless its relatively new in which there is a chance it won't work.
