Well, that was a scary month.
Acekard Team has released a new version of their excellent flash cart
that works on the Nintendo DSi. The Acekard 2i retains all the functionality of earlier flash carts, including the ability to run homebrew and backups, as well as store save files and use Action Replay codes. The new card is even compatible with earlier versions of the DS in addition to the DSi.
After releasing a video
of an early success, which seemed to work only in conjunction with some kind of hardware hacking, it's no surprise that Acekard Team is the first to reach this milestone. We have no idea how the 2i differs from previous flash carts -- it may be a new hardware revision or it may even be custom firmware! The point is that it works
, at least until Nintendo releases the eventual update for the DSi firmware.
The Acekard 2i has yet to be stocked in any of the listed resellers, but that may be because it was just
announced. Acekard Team promises that the new card "will come up in a very short time." You can see the Acekard 2i in action in this video
, which does
unfortunately include footage of swashbuckling-related activities.
