    This has been bothering me a lot lately. I hope this is the right place for this.

    I recently purchased an R4 online. When I received it, I was very excited. I took it out of the box clearly labeled R4.
    I put the SD card into my computer, downloaded the system files and placed them onto it; then insterted it into my DS lite and turned it on.
    I have my DS set to automatically go to the game, and the screen displayed "Loading". I waited for a bit, and it did not change. I tried again many times.
    It didn't work. Later, I was going to use Pictochat, so I held start and the main menu was shown. But where the game title is usually at, instead of saying R4, it said Acekard 2i. This had me greatly confused, so I put the card back into my computer and downloaded the Acekard system files. I inserted the card back into my DS, and to my suprise, it worked, taking me to the Acekard 2i menu. I use it regually use it and have had very few problems with it, but it bothers me that I purchased and Acekard and I was given an R4. Could this have something to do with the website? I've checked around, and my R4 packaging seems legitimate.

    Has this happened to anyone else? I can provide video.

    They could have mislabelled an AK2i cart with the wrong sticker, be grateful - you've ended up with a far superior cart!

    It is a possible that the ones you bought it from put the wrong sticker on the cart since I think they don't have them on when they get it. Be happy an ak2i is way better than a R4. [​IMG]

    They come stickerless then they stick on the sticker later. So when they are blank they might get mixed into the wrong pile.

    .. The only clone of the acekard is the r4 ultra. Which requires you to boot the acekard firmware off the original r4 ultra firmware. This is afaik.
