    Not so cheap anymore as the Normal Acekard 2. But It's good to see that DSi users can play piracy games now [​IMG]

    That's a pretty reasonable price for the first flashcart, and the AceKard 2 is very good! The original is still half the price, so I won't buy this unless I know for certain that I'll buy the DSi.

    And here comes another reason for buying a DSL instead of a DSi.

    Well, it's still ½ the price of a retail DS game.. as long as flashcards stay under that, it's fine with me.

    If somebody counts how much doesn't pay for games then he will realize how pretty cheap all flashcarts are. [​IMG]

    I hope N doesn't make any updates to stop flashcarts from working in DSi. [​IMG] Dream... [​IMG]

    Still cheaper than an M3 REAL BUNDLE and about the same as SC DSONE and cheaper than a CYCLODS too [​IMG]

    To a DSi user it would be worth every penny if they want *Cough* Homebrew lol [​IMG]

    I purchased my R4 from DX a.ka. DealExtreme and it took almost 2 Months to receive and they cannot even give me a confirmation on the shipping. I have to go so far as to do a DNS look up and then find out their website registration information until finally I got them on the phone. The guy was very rude and was not helpful at all. The worst part was that they do not even speak English. I have purchased many things from them in the past but its not always about getting the item for cheap. Its the Quality of service and how about to do an RMA in case the item is defective. I rather pay a little extra then to go through that hassle again. I will have this item probably before allot of other members on this forum can give a product review and just in time for the holidays too b/c I have the Jap. DSi that i purchased locally. Don't Try to Shoot and Kill the Messenger.... I just wanted to pass the info along. [​IMG]

    I guarantee you the compatibility of this will be destroyed with a firmware update.

    What do you expect? The phone number a domain is registered with is never meant to be a support line.

    Well...Plus I ordered a few hundred dollars worth of stuff...so it good motivation to get in touch with them to ensure that my purchase arrives as promised...I think that if any you guys were in the same position you'll probably be jumping up and down....lolz..

    Very nice. Ordered. I had an Acekard 2.1 ordered from last week that was out of stock and backordered until late December, so that actually worked out well because I canceled it and ordered this. [​IMG]

    To those that state Nintendo will just update the firmware to block it - well, yes...but the situation will be very much like the Wii I imagine - the hackers/pirates will always be one step ahead. You just will need to pay attention a little bit better than with the "standard" DS scene (where only games don't work and usually it's a minor inconvenience for a couple days until someone develops a fix).

    it bricks if you run AKAIO or any AK2 loader prior to 4.12.

    Good job, Acekard [​IMG]

    That's probably something they should publicly let users know!

    Did you not see the link that SoulAnger posted on this very page? It is on Acekard's site - i.e. they're publicly letting them know. [​IMG]
