    Load the AK. Start --> Help. There should something along the lines of "HW:" at the bottom of the popup. That's the HWID. Report back when you can.

    Guys you don't have to open up your Acekard to find out the PCB colour, just take out your microSD and have a look through the hole. You can on mine anyways (AK2i Black HW44).

    Not that this helps... HW: 81 AK2i Black PCB

    And on mine, if you look at the contacts you can see a strip of black where the PCB is showing [​IMG]

    I know it's not a AK2 or AK2i, but I thought it might still be helpful anyway.
    (Shouldnt be a clone, as I pre-ordered it before it was released, so it's probably from the first shipment)

    So, as I understand it, this is basically a DRM system attempting to prevent use with pirated versions of a device primarily used for piracy, but inadvertently causing problems for paying customers?

    That is in no way ironic.

    The AKAIO clone protection is not causing any problems for legit customers, the white screens and such are a separate problem that they're trying to figure out so they can fix, thus this thread.

    I got the same exact one (PCB, HW and SVN), I actually bought 2 within the last year from mygamingmart in toronto and they are both identicals.

    Never had any problem and they ran all firmware version perfectly including the latest RC2.

    The 2 in my possession are the same. I'm going to safely assume, that the 4 that I gave as presents are the same since they came all at the same time from the same place.

    IMHO - I would call it 'black'
    Well that's what I'm calling my Ak2i & that's one of the 'older' versions
