I heard that the AK2i's from DX won't update, is this true? Because I'm ordering one today.

they are theoretically true cards (not clones) but have troubles updating...
i have two, and had to use a hacked R4i update, which ended up working fine...

This is no longer an issue, the Acekard 1.4 firmware update tool has been updated and now works on them. This updated tool was posted by Normmatt, developer of AKAIO who hates clones so both the update and these cards are legit.

This '0% progress' problem effects AK2i's brought from many places, not just DX. Hence the updated tool. There is no need to use any R4i update.

QUOTE(Normmatt @ Aug 17 2009, 12:16 PM) Apparently theres a newer update file around now not sure whats changed but you can find it here

When did you buy those? Was it recently?
I have a broken legit AK2i which was I bought about 3 weeks after its release and it looks like the new fake ones with actel chips????
I heard the newer batches from DX were fake and AKAIO doesn't work/semi works on those.

EDIT: You can still buy AK2is from DX.

Linkers are what people who typically don't know what they're talking about call 'Flashcards'.

Click the "Add to Cart" button to buy it.

They removed many of the Flashcards listings to comply with a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) notice which threatened to suspend their PayPal account if they continued to list the various flashcards they had. Even though the listings are removed, you can still buy them by adding them to your cart from the Review pages.
