Infinite loading ROMs, runs homebrew (the only homebrew I have is Warcraft TD) fine. Since I read AK2 failures usually show within the first couple months, I thought mine was fine but I guess not. Infinite loading when put in another DS as well. Another symptom includes DS not recognizing the cart at bootup (says nothing inserted, again from both DS). I tried reinserting the memory card and the cart over a dozen times each, no luck at all. R4 died after 15 months, AK2 died after 4 months, N-Card still fully functional. I'm gonna order a 2.1 and hope for the better. But for $30? I didn't exactly expect that edit: Popped in AK team's v4.11 loader and I get infinite loading on the bottom screen and infinite 01010101 on the top screen.
