    OK, I've been having the same problems as many posters here....

    Got my Ak2i 3 weeks ago....worked fine at first then it started locking up on everything....

    I got a Kingston TWN 8gb card from Meritline....I think that's the cause...It's quite a bit slower than my JPN Kingston card 1gb....

    Yesterday I swapped out the 8gb for my JPN 1gb...haven't had any problems so far....

    So peeps....change your micro sd cards and see if that helps...

    I'll update as I test it further....

    My little sister is having the same problem on her DSi XL, the Acekard 2i works fine on her DS Lite, but freezes on every game on the DSi XL, also she pointed out that Style Savvy goes to a white screen every time it boots as well, she's resorted to using the DS Lite while the XL sits there like a $200 doorstop.

    I'll try the paper trick to see what happens.

    Acekard 2i (legit from dealextreme)
    Transcend 8gb Class 6 Micro SD (properly formatted)
    1.4 firmware
    AKAIO 1.6 RC2

    It's not normally the paper trick on the DSi XL which is needed. You need to pull the Acekard out of the slot slightly after you insert it.

    As for Style Savvy, that's a problem with AKAIO 1.6RC2.

    Start from scratch and install AKAIO 1.7 fresh as in my guide http://gbatemp.net/t218103-updated-n00b-gu...up-your-acekard

    Oh, don't be mistaken...even though a few people are having a problem with their Acekard and DSi XL, your R4 still certainly does suck. [​IMG]

    for me the simple fix was to format my kingston 4gb msdhc card with sd formatter per tk_saturn's excellent guide
    worked perfectly after that, great cart [​IMG]

    I have no probs with the DSi XL and Ackard2i, have tried two of them both work fine. Infact all the cards I have that are compatible work with no probs Supercard DSTWO, iEdge, M3i Zero and the Acekards.

    You might just have a duff cart and should get it replaced.

    Yes! 1.7 strangely works with Style Savvy on the DSi XL.

    I was a bit confused about the DSi XL insertion trick mentioned in the guide, but here is how I did it: insert the card normally, then highlight the Danny Phantom icon on the DSi menu screen, then slowly slide the card out until the Danny Phantom icon disappears, then gently slide it back *just enough* to make the Danny Phantom icon re-appear. This worked!

    Thank you!

    You have to do this every time you insert the AK to the XL? Damn.
