Nintendo released on the 7th of September an update for the DSi and DSi XL consoles respectively. The update was the first in approximately one year after the last update, the 1.4 update, which rendered almost all DSi compatible cards not working. The official release of the firmware boasted "enhancements and updates to the underlying Nintendo DSi system" but these updates do not appear to be forthcoming. The new Nintendo DSi update appears to only attempt to block the functionality of homebrew flash cards. The update is known as 1.4.1E in Europe, 1.4.1U in America, and 1.4.2C in parts of Asia. Every known DSi compatible card was blocked in the process. Nintendo DSi and DSi XL users alike are advised not to update their consoles so that their cards would still work. Many cards were permanently no longer compatible, but some teams have released fixes to make their cards compatible with the new 1.4.1 firmware. The Acekard 2i is one of those teams. The new 1.4.1 firmware disabled the Acekard 2i temporarily, but using a new F Core and new set of system files, simply replacing the existing F Core with a new file is sufficient to 'patch' the Acekard 2i to work with the Nintendo firmware update. The Acekard 2i DSi card was originally designed to have its firmware as completely updatable, and will therefore be able to work with future updates as well without too much difficulty. It is imperative that gamers on the Nintendo DS and DSi consoles purchase only legitimate and genuine Acekard 2i cards from reputable stores that only stock original cards. Many fake and clone cards on the market are unable to update to work with the newest 1.4.1 firmware and as a result are rendered useless. Homebrew developers and gamers on the Nintendo DS consoles can purchase genuine M3i Zero cards from DSCardWorld. Cards are tested prior to dispatch, and support is offered via e-mail for all Acekard 2i card related troubleshooting issues. The Acekard 2i cards also come pre-flashed so that the user would not have to do anything once they receive their card, making their service second to none.
