    My boyfriend sent me his acekard 2i which is running the newest update for the newest 3DS firmware update. It also has AKAIO 1.8.9 not the new z running on the cart. it works fine on his 3DS and DSi and worked fine on mine at one point. I'd really like to use it any ideas on how I can get this to work I am running the latest firmware update for my DSi.

    Thanks hope I explained it right I don't have much knowledge about this stuff :P

    Akaio is not firmware.
    As a simple analogy, it's the OS, what you need to update is the BIOS.

    You need to flash the Acekard 2i with the latest firmware on a DS that can currently read it.

    Do you get an error message when you turn your DSi on?

    Your Acekard should have a Prince Caspian icon. If it does not, extract and run this file on your Acekard using a DS/DSi/3DS the Acekard presently works with. Could you describe exactly how it is not working with your DSi? If it has a Prince Caspian icon but isn't showing up on your DSi, then it might be a contact issue.

    ok, i read the 1st post again... if it works on his updated 3ds and dsi, then your issue is a contact issue. i have acekards that work great on one system but not on another. i have one that actually works on my ds lite, and an xl, but on my xl if i move the xl at all it loses contact. its funny because i found that if i hold the xl while laying on my back it gets contact.

    if reseating doesn't fix your problem then you'll need to fix the contact issue.

    for that read this guide: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Solving_Acekard_2i_Contact_Issues
