    I was hoping for a step by step list of how to run a GBA game from a 3in1 using an Acekard 2i, start to finish, saving included. I feel like I'm missing something and a step by step from someone who has done it a bunch may help. [​IMG]

    Yep... It's about that simple... Although, If your having trouble saving... Some roms may need an Sram patch... Haven't done it in a while... So I don't know for sure... And the only other thing I can think of is that your 3in1 battery may be dead...

    I believe AKAIO does automatic SRAM patching. Some games have save trouble like Pokemon Emerald, FireRed, or LeafGreen. In order to play them you need the homebrew, GBAExploader. It freezes with AKAIO unless you download the official firmware and extract it and copy the ak2_sd.dldi in the __ak2 folder into your __aio folder on your MicroSD. Overwrite the existing file.
