    Before I start, I would like to say sorry that I:
    *Am a new ak user
    *Didn't search beforehand
    *Probably pissed someone off somewhere
    *Am being a noob/etc

    Anyways, I've recently received 2 acekards, an ak2 and an ak2i, from ndscardsale.com.
    Akaio get stuck on a green loading screen when trying to boot a game in ak2.
    Interestingly enough, just by taking the sd card out of the ak2 and putting it in the ak2i and booting from that, games work fine.

    Could anyone explain why this is?

    Your AK2 is probably fake, that's why it isn't working. Getting AK2 aren't recommended, they tend to be clones (hence fake, not being able to load AKAIO). That's why most people are opting for AK 2i, which have a lot more chance of being legit.

    I suggest you try to get a refund from the manufacturer or ask them to send you an AK2i in exchange for your faulty AK2.

    Good luck.

    Well I checked the chip and everything and it looks nothing like the the clone chips in the other thread.
    Unless it doesn't matter.

    Try using the official acekard firmware version 4.07. If that firmware works than I'm presuming that you have teh problamatic AK2.1 cards. Basically these are real acekards but there's a porblem preventing them using the latest firmwares. I wouldn't worry too much about it though as the next next version of AKAIO should fix the problem.

    Do you have any idea of when it's going to come out, like release time patterns? Or is it one of those things that comes out when it's done.

    What's your HWID (Find it by going to Start --> Help, HWID is listed at the bottom of the that box) and what color was the PCB (color of the circuit board) when you opened it? If the HWID is 80 and the PCB (circuit board color) was Black, I need you to PM me immediately. Another World is compiling a database of real and clone cards so I'll want some high-res pictures of the internals and the packaging before you send it back to submit to him, crediting you. Then you can send it back for an AK2i [​IMG]

    And there is no Akaio 1.6.2, the latest one is AKAIO 1.6 RC2.

    Hmm? Bingo. Hwid 80, pcb is black or dark greenish.
    Why the sense of urgency you're implying?


    You're scaring me.
    Is it a clone card or a bad batch card?

    you have the ak2.1 that has been manufactured from dec 09 until april 2010. this card has a small hardware variation that the official acekard team can not figure out. this card is indeed working on the akaio 1.6 rc3 (the current beta).

    0shippingzone.com has confirmed with me that they are receiving the old design again, which appears to be the new card. instead of trying to fix the firmware acekard simply went back 1 revision.

    acekard does have the code to fix the official firmware, it was provided for them by the akaio team.

    be patient and wait. your card is not a clone. you will be able to use it sometime very soon.

    you are off to a very bad start.

    you know that bit at the end of .nfo files that says "don't find us, we'll find you"? it's a bit like that.

    "It's not available yet." Would have sufficed... But, either way I suppose. >.>

    Just not available to someone curious enough to ask about it. Maybe because he has been having issues with older AKAIO versions all night, and the thought of something new to play with would be nice. Friendly of ya though. [​IMG]

    it should be released soon. i've been talking to norm about a new release. there just isn't that much new in the rc3 version. i can count all the updates on one hand. so it might be awhile until a worthy version is finished.

    I can live with that. Just having an issue that I am starting to think is more the kart than the firmware.

    Edit: Well, just fixed the issues I was having with Spirit Tracks, and FF Tactics. I noticed they were only working properly on my AK2i that was in my DSi... For some reason updating the cart so it works on a DSi seemed to fix the problem across the board... I am confused. Happy, but confused.

    Will the cards that Shoptemp sell have the same issue? I just bought one...
