Hi,

I'm running AKAIO 1.4.1 on my AK2 and I want the original FW 4.16 on my AK2 too, so I can switch between 2 Systems. Where do I put the "__ak2" Folder and "akmenu4.nds" File? Do I need the "ak2loader.nds" too? And if yes in which Folder/Path? Which OS is booting first then, AKAIO 1.4.1 or Original AK 4.16 Firmware? Do I start 4.16 FW from AKAIO 1.4.1? Sorry for the noob questions... Would be nice if someone shows me the correct Folders and Paths

Thats impossible, because its a limitation of the hardware and at the startup the hardware chooses the loader and you can't switch it. That would somehow like if you want to shutdown windows when you start another os out of it.

The File is down:

The key you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on Mediafire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or Mediafire.
I haven't gotten around to actually test it, but here's a Megaupload mirror if you want to try it out:

How to use
-Rename AKAIO's akmenu4.nds to akaio.nds, offical AK2's akmenu4.nds to ak2.nds
-turn power on & hold R to boot offical AK2 Firmware.

I thought that not all (older) NDS-Games are running on AKAIO. When they all running I don't need the original Firmware. Can someone confirm this?

AKAIO rules over official 4.16,As long as keep up to date on the loaders and besides AKAIO firmware gets updated and is more future proof on future roms

thanks for your reply Normmatt
can I do something to convince you it's the greatest game on earth (at least my daughter told me so)???
Would it be much work to do so? Would you do that to make my daughter smile (and many million european daughters too)?
