    hey guys kiafazool here
    and i have some hardware problem with my ak2i
    i have 2 ak2i and will be giving one to my cousin when i go and visit him in 2 days
    and some how MY ak2i has hardware problems
    2 days ago it was working fine
    the i took it out once to bother my small cousin over here because she wanted to play on me ds
    and then the she found it, she put it in and it was working
    when i got home and wanted to play pokemon it wouldn't work
    meaning the ds is not recognizing it anyway
    i thought it was the microsd slot problem but i tried putting it in and out and same thing
    then i thought Contact Issues
    then i tried this trick from tk's thread
    [​IMG]
    and It STILL DOESN'T WORK
    WAT DO I DO?
    i tried my micro sd card on the other ak2i and it is working properly but my ak2i is not working
    if someone doesn't understand me i can make a video showing everything

    EDIT: i think its pretty obvious that its not the microsd slot because the ds is not even taking it to the loading screen
    the ds just goes to the picto chat and download play screen

    I have to go to school in like 5 minutes so this will be a quick response.

    Its still contact issues with the cart not the MicroSD because if it was the MicroSD, you would have been able to execute the Acekard from the DS Menu but be stuck on "LOADING" directly afterward. From your statement, it sounds like you cant even get it to be recognized in the menu. More paper or cleaning the contacts would help.

    my contacts are like brand new
    not even a dust particle is in the ds' slot
    and i tried putting x3 paper with the acekard and still NOTING (i left out the 'h' for more emphasis)

    cant it not be a chip or something problem
    because i never had any problem with it for the past 2 months

    what about returning it?
    i got it from shoptemp.com and they have a 90 day exchange and refund policy

    Its possible that the bootloader got corrupted and so you need to reflash it. Since you can't execute the broken AK2i, place the DSL update from tk's guide on your working AK2i. Use your working AK2i and execute the update. It will ask you to eject the current card and place in the other card. That's when you eject your working AK2i and place in the broken AK2i. Run the update and restart the handheld and see if anything changes with the application of the paper trick. If this doesn't work then you return it to ShopTemp cuz it seems like an internal hardware problem unrelated to the contacts.

    Shocking how that given time, DESPITE YOUR BITCHING THAT SOMEONE DIDN'T SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM FOR YOU IN AN HOUR, people will respond to your topic.

    This is a forum, not a live chat.
    People aren't at your beckon call 24/7.

    Very true, I was at school for 7 hours and I came home to immediately check GBATemp for general updates and follow up on any new threads, which included yours. I'd say I'm sorry for being late, but I'm not cuz this is a forum.

    Again, it was just an hour.
    This is a forum, not live chat.
    Nobody here is being paid to help you, somebody will help you when they get around to it.

    You seem to be just as oblivious to the meaning of trolling as Narudude. He isn't trolling, he's just telling the truth. You're way too impatient if you can't even be bothered to wait for only an hour.

    I have the same problem, but I dont have a 2nd working ak2i. I do have a working original R4, which I use now.

    Any solutions?

    Follow the instructions I gave kiafazool. You can download the update here. Place the DSL update on your R4 and when it asks to eject the cart place in your AK2i and press whatever button to start the update.

    wrong
    he posted before he even noticed the time
    he just randomly posted that it was and hour before Hadoka posted
    and the truth is that i made this thread on 3:22 am and the first reply was at 10:26 am
    that is about 7 hours
    so indeed he was trolling
    and im not impatient and again it was not an hour

    We're talking about your second and third posts, which are the ones that are an hour apart, and that's when you bitched about not getting help, after waiting only an hour.

    I'm sorry... it wasn't an hour, it was 1 hour 33 minutes.

    My point still stands that not only did you expect people to solve your problem, you were impatient.


    Also, making a post at 3:22am, when most people are SLEEPING, is not the best time to hope for a fast response.

    i didn't expect ANYONE to solve my problem
    i was expecting people to atleast post something because they always do

    maybe you were sleeping at 3:22am
    there are more people in the world besides you
    some people are awake at that time
