    Hi all. I've been using the Acekard 2i for quite some time now, and I've never had any complaints. It still works very well most of the time. However, as I'm sure you all know, the Acekard is no longer working with the latest 3DS updates. It doesn't seem like a firmware update will be coming this time, as the DS is pretty much dead.

    I do have a DS Lite to play it on, but its in pretty bad shape. I'd like to go back and replay some of my old DS favorites, but when your L button doesn't work and the screen doesn't lock into place, its very annoying. Anyways, I came here to ask about some good Acekard alternatives.

    I'm not looking to do much other than just play DS games on my 3DS. Are there any cards out there that work as good as the Acekard 2i, and will allow me to play DS games on my 3DS? Thanks in advance!

    Not a flashcard user, but most would recommend the R4i Gold Plus as a good alternative.

    I'm moving on to a Supercard. I'm going to miss using Akaio on my 3ds though. Oh well, I can still use my Acekard on my Ds Lite and Nintendo can't do a damn thing about that.

    You can have a look at www.r4ids.cn ,which is officially supported by WOOD R4.
    WOOD R4 is derived from AKAIO and the UI style is almost the same.

    R4i Gold. Since the AK Team is so lazy, I'm gonna wait a month before I sell.

    I too decided to opt to a Supercard DStwo, being A Acekard 2i user for a while I was happy enough to move on, just hate spending the money! lol.

    The r4ids.cn site should be back up now.
