    original post: http://normmatt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=452

    the crew over at the akaio forum have asked me to type out this "call for help." they are compiling a thread which explains what acekards are real, what are clones, and what to look for. they are missing some images and require help from the community.

    by packaging i mean the box or clamshell the acekard shipped in.

    missing real acekard images:
    ak2.0 hwid 40 Green PCB - front, back, inside, both sides of pcb, packaging (front, back, inside)
    ak2.0 hwid 41 Green PCB - front, back, inside, both sides of pcb, packaging (front, back, inside)

    ak2.1 hwid 41 Green PCB - front, back, inside, both sides of pcb, packaging (front, back, inside)
    *please not the 2.1 hw41 was the *fixed* FAT error green pcb 2.0 with the ak 2.1 sticker
    ak2.1 hwid 80 Green PCB - front, back, inside, both sides of pcb, packaging (front, back, inside)
    ak2.1 hwid 80 Black PCB dec 09 batch - front, back, inside, both sides of pcb, packaging (front, back, inside)
    ak2.1 hwid 80 Blue PCB - front, back, inside, both sides of pcb, packaging (front, back, inside)

    ak2i hwid 44 - packaging (front, back, inside)

    missing clone images:
    any clone acekard but the hwid 4444 - front, back, inside, both sides of pcb, packaging (front, back, inside)

    as you can see from this list they are missing most everything. they currently only have the 2i shots, ak2i hwid 81 box shots, and the hwid 4444 clone shots.

    here is how you can help:
    1) please do not post a reply with your images to this thread, instead PM them to me.
    2) host your images somewhere that won't expire incase i can't get to them for a few days
    3) ALL images must be HIGH QUALITY
    *clear, in focus, very good lighting, able to read the details.
    *while i appreciate the help of everyone, if you don't own a high end digi that can take really good clear macro shots, please don't submit.
    4) Packaging should not be flattened or scanned.

    when you submit please tell me what acekard hwid you are submitting. then enter your images using the img bbcode tag.
    Code:
    [img]http://mypic.jpg[/img]
    i may ask users to take better images from time to time. this has worked out in the past, and i will apologize for this up front.

    after i receive submissions, if they look good enough to post, i will strike out/remove the line from this list.

    thank you for your help!

    These are two awesome photos of the 'Bad Batch' HWID 80 AK2.1 taken by Xomp incase you missed them.

    They are from this thread. You'll have to PM him if you want to use them.

    I've also seen a second set of the cardboard packaging posted in this forum, I tried looking for it before and couldn't find it. It's as the photo you already have, but in the plastic insert the cart has been move further to the top and below it is a space for a TF/ MSD card reader similar to the plastic clamshell packaging.

    edit: There's web page with it http://img.diytrade.com/cdimg/874488/82568...rd_for_NDSI.jpg Sticker looks flat to me, so presumably a HW81. In all the googleable images http://s3.hubimg.com/u/1029198_f520.jpg etc the raised chip in the clamshells are pretty noticable (HW44 presumably)

    well just posting to say i got my AK2i HWID81 in the same box as the pics posted on the site but mine had a paper inlay,but also came with a micro SD card reader that has a place for it in the inlay above the AK2i (i know they card is legit its from an official reseller,and runs 1.6RC2 perfectly)

    i will try and get pics from my DSi if i can get decent to good quality

    pics or scans of the hwid 81 package with the different insert would be great. i'm not sure the dsi camera is up for this, but let me know.

    When I got my AK2i (from DX,) it came in a very similar box. The AK2i (HWID:81 and genuine) was by itself (no paper, I think) and was in a plastic holder. The plastic holder only had a slot for just the AK2i.

    The DSi Compatible sticker was on the Right hand side instead of the left though. Also a 7 digit number (8018728) was printed on another sticker (upside-down) on the front of the box.

    I still have the box.

    The 8018728 is DX's own stock code, they put it on for their own reference.

    The DSi sticker is also placed on the box by the retailer. Can be placed anywhere, depends on who is doing it.

    I took an alternative shot of 4 81's a while ago if you're interested. It's from all 4 sides.

    thank you for your pictures. thank you for submitting the via PM, as i asked, which helps to keep this thread clean. =)

    @Vietkid420: thanks for the photos, but as i already typed in the top thread, we do not need hw81 shots. alternate box shoulds could be useful if you have something different from what was already submitted to the akaio forum.

    I've already posted above, the 8018728 sticker has nothing to do with Acekard. It's DealExtreme's stock code which they use for their own reference.

    There's no need for anyone to provide photos of it. It's the same box we all have.
