    Because the original one got wiped :(

    Anyhoo, my SDHC card arrived this morning 8gb for me to fill up with photos of people i work with. woohoo.

    must admit the missus did not find me taking a picture of her and putting the big mouth on her and going "wa wa wa wa too much football too much games blah blah" as funny as i did....

    Does it run games off the SD card if they're not on the internal flash? I haven't bothered to try and find out.

    You're already needing replacement DSi's? That's some shocking quality control.

    god damn it.

    can a friendly mod please rename the thread something like DSi Owners Thread (Replacement)

    or just get rid of the replacement.

    lord - i assume you can run DSIware off the SD card otherwise its really useless!

    I saw a DSi pre-owned in Game Station on Sunday. Someone obviously wasn't impressed.

    I'm STILL waiting for mine to arrive from Littlewoods direct. It was supposed to be here yesterday. Their delivery sucks.

    There was a £50 voucher off a £100 spend floating about last week so I ordered mine from Littlewoods direct too :) Still waiting though :(

    My Acekard2i is on its way from Dealextreme, which firmware for the card are people using? The Acekard or AKAIO?

    Oh, and I didn't know the DSi was already hacked. Is there a "How to" thread similar to that with the PSP Custom Firmware Thread?

    theres no real "how to" for it morriss. you just need to buy an Acekard 2i

    its not hacking, just a cartridge.

    however nobody knows if the cartridge will be banned by nintendo by future firmware updates

    yeah but thats what you do with the cartridge

    you can load emulators, roms, moonshell onto the cartridge itself (via SD Micro)
  • Deleted user 9 April 2009 10:35:37
    yeah, it's really the DS that's 'still' hacked isn't it.

    Like a Gamecube exploit working on the Wii.

    Right. So then I'll need a "How to" to know what to DL, what the best Emus are, etc. :)

    I want a DSi just so I can let my g/f take a photo of us and then turn our faces purple, beacuse we really will look like aliens.

    Fucking fantastic.

    sigh :)

    1) Buy an Acekard 2i
    2) Buy a SD Micro (i suggest at least 2gb they are v cheap), and make sure you have a pc card reader handy
    3) Go to www.acekard.com and download the official "firmware"
    4) Unzip and copy all the "firmware" files from your PC to the SD Micro (get a card reader you'll need one). Keep the directory structure from the zip file
    5) Acquire some Roms
    6) Copy roms to the SD Micro. Any directory will do
    7) Acquire some emulators. I suggest SCUMMVM and SnemulDS as the two i'd use
    8) Copy emulators to the SD Micro. Any directory will do
    9) Get some old games, i suggest Police quest 1 and monkey island.
    10) Copy old games to the SD Micro. Any directory will do.
    11) Insert SD Micro into Acekard 2i
    12) Insert Acekard 2i into DSi
    13) Switch on DSi
    14) Play Acekard like a normal game.

    that colour shit doesnt work very well, i was kinda disappointed. dunno if it is because i am brown, but it can't work out the outlines very well, so for example trying to turn my face purple also turns bits of the wall purple and the colours leak all over teh place.
