OK,  this Tutorial is for how to update your acekard 2i to work on 3DS V4.3.0-10  qith the acekard 2i update patch.

Step1:  Download the latest akaio firmwareV1.89 from here: AKAIO V1.89  Extract it, and then put the  folder “__aio” and file “akmenu4.nds” in the root of your sd card.

Step2: Download the Acekard 2i update patch for 3DS V4.3.0-10 from here:  beta ak2i update patch for 3DS V4.3.0-10 (notice: if the ak2i official site releases the update patch in future, pls just download from the official site. )  Extract it. you will see two patch files called: “ak2ifw_update_3ds43_dsi144_onDSL.nds” and “ak2ifw_update_3ds43_dsi144_onDSi_DSXL_3DS.nds”   if you use a DSL to update your ak2i, use the first one, if you use a DSi or 3DS  to do the update, just use the second one. there is also a read me file in the folder, take a look as well. I am using a DS lite in this tutorial, so i put the “ak2ifw_update_3ds43_dsi144_onDSL.nds” in the root of my sd card.

Step3:  Put the sd into your acekard 2i and then put the ak2i with SD card in your DS lite, power on and access.
