UPDATE Apr 18th: Quick summary. Got two clone Acekard2i from ezbuy365. They sent me replacement "real" ones. I don't think they knew they were clones. Thank you ezbuy365. I bought two Acekard2i from ezbuy365.com and I am pretty sure they are clones. Let me tell you what I have done so far. I do have one working Acekard2i which I got from somewhere else (using AKAIO 1.8.6a ). So that is the microSD card I have been using with the “Fake” Acekard2i. So any problems having to do with the SD card can be ruled out. When I first got the Acekard2i I put the SD card in and put the Acekard2i in my DSi. Turned it on and saw “Alex Rider”. Click “A” and got this message, “An error has occurred. Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off. Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations Manual for help troubleshooting.” I tried the same suspected fake Acekard2i in a DS Lite (v5 – magenta screen color). I got an error message but can’t remember what that one said. UPDATE: See the fourth post. I read that if it is a fake to try the official firmware. So I put the 4.23 on the SD card. The one from Acekard download page. I put the Acekard2i back in the DS Lite and it worked sorta. I was able to see the games in my games folder but most of them didn’t work. I then tried the Acekard2i in the DSi and got the same error message as before, “An error has occurred. Press…”. Next, I decided I would try to flash one of the Acekard2i because maybe it didn’t have the latest 1.4.1 fix or whatever it is. So I followed the instructions from the n00b guide. Got the blue screen loaded and it said “Update is done, reboot DS”. Okay, I thought I had made progress. Well the one card I tried to flash I can’t get the DS or DSi to recognize it with either AKAIO or 4.23. I even did the “Paper Trick” thinking it wasn’t reading the card. No luck. I think that card is completely screwed (aka Bad Flash?). http://www.acekard.com/news.php#106 According to these images the two cards do not have the pin hole above the second gold piece and the cut out does have a right angle. My other “good” card does have the arc cut out and there is a pin hole. So if anyone has any other ideas I am more than willing to try it. My question now is if these are “Fake/Clones” are they useful at all? Can I exchange them or something? Does ezbuy365.com or any retailer know they are selling clones if in fact they are?
