    I really hope that Normatt/AKAIO isn't 'dead' - I would hate waiting for Acekard to bring updates out, as they seem to take a long time doing THAT

    Has any1 PM Normatt ?? - asking what IS happening with AKAIO. If we get it straight from the 'horses mouth' then that should stop all rumours flying around

    EDITED: I taken my own advice and PM Normmatt. Let's see if we get a result

    Well, he changed is tag line to "Former AKAIO Programmer", so draw your own conclusions.

    I hate to sound like that Waddle Dee with the sailors hat from from Kirby Super Star but...

    "Maybe the server is just down?"


    Edit: The Loaders Page is still up, as is the Wifi Plugins page

    http://akaio.gbatemp.net/nloaders/
    http://akaio.gbatemp.net/wifi/

    I believe I also have the 1.5.1 AKAIO firmware+Loaders+Wifi Plugin, and loaders somewhere on my Macbook, as well as the AKAIO 1.5 FW+Loaders+Wifi Plugin. I've got work though today as well as toomorow (Which is also my brothers birthday, and on Sunday as well so I won't be able to post them for a few days, It'll probably be on Monday (I have no college, yay!). I'll compile a zip and post it on filetrip at some point on Monday if I remember.

    btw. as told Aeon - I think too he dont pay the bill for hosting (or maybe too late) --- or server troubles (maybe rudolphs-hack-attack [​IMG] just joking)

    No reply from the PM I sent Normmatt yet, but apparently he's present on the forum AND the 'last click' was using 'Personnal messenger' @ 8:02pm (10mins ago)

    Perhaps he didn't know it was down & he's checking up on it as we speak

    I'm pretty sure AKAIO isn't dead.

    It'll probably be back up later.

    that is from lack of payment or breaking the terms of the host.

    its probably a bandwidth issue. you see this pretty often on small sites that get slashdotted or dugg. switching the hosting of the loaders to his own probably passed his bandwidth allotment this month. everyones updating loaders since the release of 1.5.1, and probably testing out the wifi updating as well.

    I know a lot of people are 'speculating' that AKAIO isn't really dead, but I've read at least three posts from Normmatt saying that it is. I suppose that's the news we should go with unless he says otherwise. This specific incident may be because of lack of payment, but maybe it was purposely not paid.
