    1) back up your SD card and format it

    2) Download AKAIO and teh latest loaders and place on card.

    3)place everything on card.

    That really should be it.

    Code:
    Quick Guide
    Format the microSD with the Panasonic formatter. 
    Download the current version of AKAIO 
    Unzip the file and put the _aio* folder and akmenu4.nds at the Root (base) of your microSD card 
    Insert the microSD card firmly in a non-spring loaded (new shell) ak2.1 and ak2i. If your microSD slot is spring loaded make sure it "clicks." 
    Insert the Acekard firmly into your NDS, again make sure it clicks. 
    Boot up the NDS, select the Acekard from the firmware Slot-1 selection box, and enjoy 
    *Please note that the _aio folder is hidden by default in the globalsettings.ini, do not place homebrew or roms in this folder you will not be able to access them. You can however set the GUI to display all hidden files and folders. The recommended method is to place your files into folders in Root. Never place a file you want to access in the _aio folder.

    this is the reason the wiki is stickied at the top of the acekard sub forum. perhaps next time you should read the stickies before you post.
