    I have an old Acekard2i which was brought more than 6 months before the release of the 3DS. My questions are:
    1. Will it work on a 3DS (after appropriate upgrade)?
    2. What are the chances I received an HW44 and how (if I can) find out?
    3. Will an Acekard2i brick the 3DS and has there been any reported cases in the US?
      • I read an extensive article on GBAtemp debunking this, but I wanted to make sure...
    Thanks in advance :yaynds:

    I forgot
    1. Yep, I have one I bought about a year or so ago and it works fine on the 3DS.
    2. The chances are slim, but if you upgrade your firmware and hit Start, hit More, then go to Help you'll see what HW version you have.
    3. NO chance of bricking whatsoever.

    If I do have a HW44, what kind of problems should I be expecting? :hateit:|

    You cannot update the bootloader so that it works on the latest 3DS firmware.

    I am sorry if this is answered somewhere else but do I need to update the software that is on my current Acekard 2i to work on the 3ds because i tried to put it in my 3ds and it does not work so I am assuming there is an update somewhere and if so can you point me in the right direction
