    I recently bought another AK2i and it has a slight bump, its not a square like the old ones or the clones its more rounded. If AKAIO doesn't report it as a clone can I be 100% sure its not one?

    If AKAIO 1.6RC2 doesn't report it, then it's legit.

    It could be a legit older model like this one:

    What is your Hardware ID? In AKAIO, press start and select the Help tab to check. If it says HWID:81 or HWID:44, it's not a fake.
    Chances are if it runs AKAIO 1.6RC2 without crashing/freezing, it's just a legit older model.

    No its not even a bulge that big (its hardly noticeable) nor is it square, I have pics (its just got a bulge that's not present in my old acekard): (its hardware id 81)

    It's fine, it's from the bump chip underneath.
