    I think this warrants a new review.

    lots of slot 1s need a update of thier review (not telling gbatemp to do this) so if the acekard gets reviewd i think you will be seeing the rest getting reviewed again.

    The upgrade is free, but you still have to pay for shipping. It's a very smart move. I've read on their board that cmpetition from R4/M3S & SuperCard hurt them quite bad. Now the AceKard looks more appealing to me. [​IMG]

    This is not just a software update. It's new hardware, and it (potentially) fundamentally changes the product. The old review (possibly) no longer applies.

    Wow, free update. That's pretty generous =)

    Does that mean there'll be owners selling their original AK?

    I've just sent an email to bamboogaming on how to return my Acekard to get AK+. I'm really happy that the replacement is free!
    I own the Ninjapass X9 and the Acekard and I could have swore that the first of these two cards to get Homebrew support w/fat would be the Ninjapass, but no it's the Acekard ^^.

    If by the time I get an Acekard+ no review of it has come out on gbatemp, expect me to do it.

    I asked for clarification on the DLDI & AKFS front, and have been told they still intend to release a DLDI driver for AKFS

    Now it's a tough choice between this and R4/M3.

    Excellent....a FREE upgrade ?
    I didn't buy an AK before, but I might as well do it in the near future(after a proper re-review of course), bu unfortunately I went for a NEOFLASH product that never worked the way it was advertised , and never saw a decent firmware update , even though notoriously NEOFLASH it's keeping on releasing new types of card all the time and seem to quickly forget and dismiss the older ones.
    Now if they woul ever want to get into business again, they should follow the splendid example of the ACE team , which obviously are doing some effort to appeal to us again and do it professionally and unexpected.
    Thumbs up for a brave initiative !( And hopefully some bad dude out there will learn something!)

    Ilusion, they have released the DLDI driver for FAT, not for AKFS. As I posted I asked if they were still working on the AKFS driver and they said they were.

    Well AKFS doesn't work the same way as fat so I doubt that their will be a DLDI AKFS driver....
