    verify your ak2i is not a clone. akaio will not work on clones. www.acekard.com/news.php. also see the akaio wiki for a list of known good carts.

    format your msd with the panasonic formatter (you can get it on filetrip.net), and then try a clean install of akaio.

    Posting pictures of the front of the AceKard(without sticker) and the back(with the pins showing), can help us confirm if it is a clone/fake.

    When you installed AKAIO 1.5/ 1.6, did you update the loaders?

    Your cart looks fine, but your sticker looks off. Probably be the camera though.

    If you don't know, then it's not the problem.

    Try doing a complete format of your SD card using the Panasonic SD formatter. Download AKAIO 1.5.1 from here (even if you've downloaded it previously) and extract it to your MicroSD card, not modify or touch anything and do not update the loaders manually or over WiFi. Copy to your MicroSD a clean rom of one of the games you were having white screens with.

    If it works, try formmating the SD card again this time trying installing AKAIO 1.6RC2.

    Great! Are you using 1.5.1 or 1.6RC2?
    I recommend switching to 1.6RC2 if you aren't using it.

    This happened to me was using Akaio 1.5 I updated the loaders the other night via wifi with the DSI and my Acekard would load to the list of games I had but as soon as I ran any game I just got two white screens..

    I have installed 1.6 rc2 and works fine now, think the new loaders are not compatible with the 1.5 version..

    akaio is for clean unpatched dumps. patched roms are not supported.

    but i still get some freezes at different times.

    the last freeze was when i checked my pokedex.

    but i think with acekard2i and akaio firmware you wont get freezes anymore, isnt it right?
