    I know you're using a DSi now, but do you ever plan to get a 3DS? If so forget about the Acekard.

    R4i Gold, Wood R4 looks and feels like akAIO and uses the same skins...mostly because it's based on the same source. Still it pretty much all the same features and even RTS. As well far more regular updates.
    Not to mention it doesn't have the contact issues like the Ackcard 2i and can work on the latest 3DS/DSi firmware.
    BTW as always I suggest using nds-card

    They are GBAtemp's official sponsor, so buying from them helps support the Temp!

    There is literally no reason to get an Acekard 2i.

    akaio still has the best homebrew compatibility, but it lacks bootloader exploits and it would seem akaio is pretty much a completed kernel. the ak2i also suffers from extremely annoying contact issues. i'm with everyone else, grab an r4i gold .cn or an r4idsn. both are from the same team and both support wood. the r4idsn has an advantage of supporting wood directly from ywg, while the r4i gold requires their team to recompile the kernel.

    i'd be really surprised if the card didn't come updated for dsi v1.4.5.

    Don't get the acekard, it isn't compatible with the latest DSi/3DS firmware update.
