    No, it's a crap clone using a hacked out of date Wood R4. If you want a cheap card that officially supports Wood R4, I suggest the R4i Gold (url on card http://www.r4ids.cn/) from GBATemp's official sponsor nds-card.com, buying from them helps support the Temp! :mthr:

    I am not worried about officially supported, hacked and working is fine for me. Does the card work?

    So it works, but not guaranteed to forever, just like official non-clone carts I used to own R4, and Ak2i?

    Did you just skim or something? What I've been linking you to IS a comparison to how the Ace sucks compared to proper support and such.

    There's no promise that any flash carts will last forever, but you'd have to be stupid to specifically choose one that has a HIGHER chance of dropping support/updates than the others (compared to the likes of the DSTwo, which is the only cart to NEVER have needed a hardware/model update).

    Are you just ignoring what everyone is saying on purpose or do you genuinely not understand any of this?
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/which-flash-cart-should-i-get.290097/page-18#post-4569557

    We have countless threads, stickies, and posts explaining why this isn't a good card and discouraging people against it, not because we hate the card or anything, but because it's no good. We are trying to help people get best product for the best price and help the community, we are not trying to be jerks.

    Ace3DS plus works with what a flashcard needs to do
    it has a non legit build of wood but works just as normal wood carts
    the team seem to support the card ok
    but all cards take a risk when the updates are released

    Thanks. Seems this site is fluffing it's own feathers with what cards they promote. Looks like I saved money and will get a card that will do well. :)

    Have fun with that, you idiot.

    EDIT: By the way, it's not "this site". It's US. People. Us forum users, who have seen people LIKE YOU do this shit over and over. Which is why we linked multiple examples for you.

    We, personally, as people, not linked to the site... we have seen plenty of people like you make this mistake.

    And we're trying to stop you from making it.

    he knows the risk, Kernel is not official, firmware is always a risk with any card
    its peoples choices whatever they go for, we have given our opinions, thats all we can do, not the mafia, cant MAKE people buy cards we see as good

    I guess, I'm just sick of people ignoring the stickies and buying shit, then coming and complaining to us that they can't get stuff working. That's why I want them to not get shit in the first place. Saves both parties trouble.

    I don't know, I suspect half the people that ask already ordered the cart before asking (outside of the ones that frankly admit that in the first post), and that's why they refuse to change and are so defensive and refuse to accept their decision was bad or something.

    For good reason. I don't earn anything by recommending one cart over another. But hey it's your choice.

    It seems you have already (subconsciously?) decided which cart you want. One person (despite pretty strong objection from others) was enough to sway your decision LOL

    That, and the problem with those is that most of the time when it's cart-specific, it's because of no updates and the person needs to buy another cart, which is obviously more hassle than just getting a more expensive but more-supported one to start.

    people only seem to learn when money is involved
    but as its a grey area being piracy related in the first place and what they can actually get in there country

    everyone will buy a bad card at least once, unless willing to take info from others, saddly not everyone wants to listen

    like a child and a flame, they will learn one way or another

    I've unfortunately bought two bad carts, original R4 and the Ak2i, burned by both of them. Looking at the history myself, without the help of most of the unhelpful here, I found that this card is very well supported and receives updates as fast or faster than most others. A clone of the best should be well above the rest. :P

    Update speed isn't what's important, it's the ability to keep getting updates and the willingness of the team to keep giving them. As a pertinent example, the Ak2i used to be the fastest. But it ran out of room, so it can't get any more updates (at least the current hardware revision). At the time it was the fastest and there were no hints of it being removed, it was suggested. Now it's not, due to the lack of updates.

    Might want to read up on your behavior. :P

    If you actually had the original R4 (as in ORIGINAL original one), I wouldn't say you were burnt given how much value you'd have gotten out of it.

    AK2i was one of the better cards until a few months back with support all the way til 4.3. Given it's lifespan, I wouldn't consider it as a bad card. Splitting hairs here.

    And sorry to burst you bubble but this is not a "clone of the best". It's nowhere near the DSTwo. Which does not have a clone at this point in time afaik. :P
