    Don't buy a fake and don't brick your card.

    It's not that difficult, 99.9% have no problem at all.

    if your card cant run akaio 1.7 and above, than its a clone. and if your card bricks, its pretty much as already stated,

    Well duh? He asked how do you know it's fake and how it can brick.

    There's 3 ways to tell if a carts fake, if there's a bump under the sticker it is most likely fake (older real carts can have a bump)
    The easiest way to tell is if the latest AKAIO doesn't work on the cart.

    Or the more time wasting way is to look at the PCB and HWID.

    AK2 Green PCB pre-FAT/FAT error - HWID 40
    AK2 Green PCB *fixed* FAT error - HWID 41
    AK2 Green PCB, windowed CPU, FAT fix and a 2.1 sticker - HWID 41
    AK2.1 Light/Dark Green PCB - HWID 80
    AK2.1 Black PCB - HWID 80
    AK2.1 Blue PCB - HWID 80
    AK2i Black PCB - HWID 44
    AK2i Yellow/Black PCB - HWID 81

    If the HWID doesn't match the colour of the PCB it's fake. If the HWID number or the colour of the PCB isn't on the list above it's fake.


    About bricks, bricks can happen in if while updating the DS is turned of, 512MB jap games can cause bricks (I've never had issues myself but it has happened) or if AKAIO 1.8.2 (or the fake AKAIO 1.8.3) is ran on an old AK2.

    hence, hundreds and thousands of posts of people having trouble / are stooped / are stuck somewhere / things not working

    honestly, before i bought my card i did so much reading on here, and every step i did i expected somethign to screw up, so i made myself hella paranoid. When i got the card, everything went 100% smooth.
