How to setup Acekard 2i

Before Acekard 2i kernel installation, it is suggested to format the micro SD/SDHC card in your computer by using the USB adapter. Just insert the MicroSD card to the USB reader, then connect the USB reader to the computer. Open the disk, choose “fomat” selection. After format, the MicroSD card is safte for use.

If you have important data on the Micro SD/SDHC card you can backup the data somewhere else before you complete this step. You may also find it useful to give you micro SD/SDHC card a volume label when formatting. This makes it easier to identify your card.

Please go acekard 2i official website: acekard.com click "download" and download version 4.21 on your desktop/mac. If the kernel has been updated on acekard.com use new kernel.
You will need winrar/ zip program to download and unzip this software and if you dont have this program on your pc already you can get it free at www.download.com, just type in rar/zip on the site's search bar.

After downloading , extract the RAR file using winrar/zip program (double click on it), this will give you "_ak2", "akmenu4.nds" and "release_note.txt". Highlight all of these and send to or transfer or drag & drop or copy and paste to the root directory (this is important) of your MicroSD/SDHC card.[The "root" of any storage media is just the first window that pops up when you open the disk drive or you can open it by going to my computer>right click>open].Finally, please check you have all of the above extracted parts on your Micro SD/SDHC card.

You can now eject your Micro SD/SDHC card from your computer, put it in your acekard 2i card, and boot up the acekard 2i in you DS/DSL/DSi. Thats it! Its really that simple!
