    When I try to download the firmware update for 3ds 2.1 it doesn't do anything. I hit save and it does absolutely nothing. No error message anything. This is very upsetting, I've been trying to update my acekard for the 2.1 software for a while now. How can I use my DSlite to make the ak2i work on my 2.1 3DS?

    Theres honestly a chance of it harming my card? I thought that stuff was done with the r4 clones?

    Its fine, i updated mine with the same file.

    If you are using a ds lite to update your card you need the ak2ifw_update_3ds21__DSi143_onDSL_NO44 file, if on a dsi use the other one.

    if you brick it running the update you simply run the update again and reflash it. there really is no risk.

    You need to have this to reflash it:

    Another flashcard (R4, Acekard, DSTT, etc.), a DS Phat or Lite (NOT DSi!), and this update file.

    Then, you need to do this:

    1. Put the update file on the another flashcard;
    2.Put that flashcard in a DS Phat or Lite and run the file;
    3.When prompted, take the card out, and put the Acekard you want to update.
    4. Press START and it will update.

    i just assume that everyone has more than 1 flash kit these days. especially when you consider that you can pick up the original r4 for the ds lite for under $5 =P.
