One little thing I noticed, if you're playing with a ds lite/unupdated or modded dsi/3ds, the 1.41/"Alex Rider" firmware update boots into akaio faster vs the current/final "Pippa Funnel" update. You can get the 1.41 update here

and follow the downgrade guide here

I only came across this because I recently bought another acekard 2i off ebay as a backup and noticed it was booting slower compared to my other card. Downgrading it fixed it.
