    1) Hi people, i remember reading somewhere that you could put the sakura firmware onto the acekard 2, which i do not think is true. But if any1 has time and could try it, that would help me alot (since i bought one).

    2) The second question is, does anyone know what the percentage rate for the acekard 2 falure is? i didnt know about teh falure when i bought it, and it was too late to cancel. Also, if its faulty, is there a new firmware you could use that might make it work, like custom made ones?

    1. Yes, there is a version of Sakura out that runs on the AK2 (and other DLDI capable carts) but it's only a demo -- it doesn't run commercial ROMs and only runs some homebrew.

    2. Nobody really knows but I've heard one retailer estimate that about 10% of the carts from the affected batches are bad. There is currently no software fix for it, nor is there likely to ever be since it's a hardware failure. Your only remedy would be to return the cart to the store you bought it from. Acekard has a 1 year warranty of their carts.
