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

    i don't think is true..
    could be some bad batch

    furthermore, all the newer batch of ak2i should be DSi 1.4 compatible

    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...

    Well I hope that's not true because I ordered one last week. It will be going back if that's the case.

    neither do i, but hey, i updated one, it works fine, and am using an unupdated card (im 1.3A (australia)) running AKAIO 1.6 RC1.
    its all running fine.
    playing soulsilver atm

    ----
    ie;
    -one card is the updated (1.4) card that my cousin has
    -another card that is not updated, and is also running akaio 1.6RC1

    Just ordered one. Do you only need to update for newer DSi firmwares?

    On a phat so won't need to bother if that's the case.

    Anyone can confirm that the AK2i's bought now from DX can run AKAIO 1.6RC1? I thought there were some fake AK2is.

    Dealextrem have removed linker two month ago xd So you'll not be able to buy one in DX during a looooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnng time ;D
    Your question does not even exists lol (before, when they were still selling linkers, ak2i wasn't fake, my friend has bought one)

    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'.
