    I'd like to update my DSi to 1.4 as I really want to try Flipnote Studio already.
    I'll be getting my AK2i in about a week (from DX)
    so I was wondering if I'll be able to update my AK2i after I update my DSi?
    all I have is a DSi, a DSL and a R4.
    will I be able to update my AK2i (whenever it arrives) so it will work if my DSi version is 1.4?
    I think I heard somewhere that you gotta have 2 flash carts :/
    if it's possible, could anyone please give me a guide how to do it? [​IMG]
    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Don't take my word though

    Since you have a DSL, then you can go ahead and update your DSi and use your lite to update the acekard when it arrives. As far as I know you only need 2 carts if your acekard is bricked, so you can run the update from the other cart thren just reflash your acekard, which you should not have to do.

    Yea if you follow the stsp-by-step right, and if the acekard from dealextreme is not a fake, you will not brick it. I've updated several cards with no bricking.
