    How do I KNOW their Acekard 2i is legit? Shoptemp is not listed on Acekard's authorized retailer site.

    Has anyone received an Acekard from them? If so, was it legit?

    Thanks.

    Well, ShopTemp is brand new, so that would explain why they're not listed on the Acekard site.

    However, I sincerely doubt GTATemp would do business with anyone that wasn't selling legit 2i's.

    I ordered my 2i from SimplyMods a little while back after hearing some things about them on a different forum, and even though they weren't on the Acekard site, they delivered a legit HWID81 2i.

    Makes sense...but let's not forget that GBATemp has also gotten burned in the past by other shops.

    Has anyone received their AK2i from ShopTemp and seen with their eyes that it's legit?

    It's probably too early. Give it a few more days for those that paid a pretty penny for good shipping.

    Given how brand brand new it is I doubt anyone has actually received them yet.

    I've personally ordered one, and the site is saying its shipped =D =D When it gets here, I will be happy to confirm its real =D

    One of the conditions before the Temp teamed up with ShopTemp was they had to sell all genuine items, as mentioned in another thread by Admin, can't remember if it was Ace or Shaun.

    If NO FAKES is a condition, then they shouldn't be selling any R4-type carts. Contradiction?

    That's probably the exception to the rule. Everyone knows (at least most on GBATemp) that "real" R4 flashcarts are no longer manufactured.

    These are just a cheap alternative for people just getting into flashcarts, I'd guess. While most of us consider them to be "shit", some people still buy 'em and like 'em. [​IMG]

    LOL...i'm one of those people that like my R4 (YSMENU + latest DSTT firmware)....but that's another story for another thread.

    I'm wanting to get my hands on an AK2i if this place is legit. If not from ShopTemp, i might order through leetmod.com since they offer the best prices in the USA (and have a great reputation).

    So you are saying because they are supplying for the R4 buyers, then their acekards may not be genuine?

    No sir. I was just pointing out that the site sells non-genuine carts. It has nothing to do with their AK2i supply.

    All i really want is for someone to receive an order of AK2i and confirm that it's legit. thats all...

    Check out this thread:

    Get ready to love your R4 even more. [​IMG]

    I sincerely doubt they're fake 2i's, though. I think you're pretty safe.

    I'm waiting on my AKi2 as we speak, I'll try to post if someone else doesn't once I get mine and test it out.

    I am a little leery about the extra shipping I purchased with a tracking number. It's been 3 days and the tracking # still shows up as invalid even though the item is marked as shipped in my ShopTemp account. One more day and I'm contacting the ShopTemp guys to see if something is up.

    They will be legit.

    There was an Acekard voucher which expired on the 26th of April.
    It may still be valid, depends on what timezone their server is in.

    Yes, mine checked out fine, every sign of being legitimate and running akAIO 1.6rc2 and all and I've been playing it for the past week on my XL. Check the customer response topic as well. Most others that've gotten theirs can vouch for that.
