    If so, where from, and is it legit and working? I have been looking at countless sites for the past 3 days now and I want to make sure I don't lose any money because of a shutdown site or a fake card. Please reply truthfully. I am talking in the past month and a half recently. Thanks.

    Lightake.com is a good site to buy from.
    As is
    RealHotStuff.com
    0shippingzone.com
    and a few others

    Thanks for the reply, but which site did you actually buy yours from?

    I bough it from 0shippingzone because I didn't live in the US, so the superfast free shipping from RealHotStuff didn't apply to me. But both 0shippingzone and Lightake take a few weeks to get your item. All three are reliable, depends on what price you want to pay for shipping, really.

    I have never heard of 0shippingzone shipping that fast. They ship within one day and you receive it two weeks later usually. Did you get the free shipping?

    RealHotStuff in the past has knowingly sold fake AceKards.
    When confronted with evidence, they lied and said it was a 'bad batch' and then lied again saying Team AceKard would be fixing them -- but they're not real AceKards so Team AceKard wouldn't.

    If you think that is an acceptable way for a business to act, then by all means buy from RealHotStuff.


    I'd recommend GameKool, I bought mine from them and got it very quickly (8 days total, including a weekend and Chinese holiday).
    I've also heard that Lightake is very good as well.

    Yeah everything should be okay, you're making the OP freak out, lol.

    I bought my AK2.1 from RealHotStuff before the whole "fake Acekards" came about. Service was great and the card was real.

    If I had to buy one again from a US based site, I'd go with LeetMod but if I had patience for a China based site, I'd go with 0shippingzone or gamekool.

    Bought about 10 Acekard 2.1 from 0shippingzone.com over the course of a year for friends and relatives. Absolutely no-one came back with complaints or asked for a replacement. Shipping is free but going from China to the UK took almost 2 weeks but that was because I went for the cheapest option. Also, all 10 Acekards ran AKAIO without problem so I'm pretty sure that they're not selling fakes.

    Edit: D'oh. Too slow....

    Did you perhaps miss the "OP already ordered" part of my previous post?

    I can vouch for 0shipping


    Took about two weeks but the prices were unbeatable and the carts were genuine too [​IMG]

    Just bought 3 from pr1ce angels, all come updated to 1.41 and are genuine.
    fyi, "pr1ce angels" are same site as the old faithful "deal extreme" [​IMG]
    (had to replace the "i" in pr1ceangels with a 1, otherwise it posts as "shoptemp") [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I ordered an Acekard 2i from lightake early December 2010. It was shipped mid-December, and I finally received it yesterday, end of January 2011. Took 6+ weeks for me to get it!!! Grgrgrgrgrg~~~!!! [​IMG]

    Was shipped in a padded yellow envelope. The box was pretty much crushed, but lucky the card is okay. Seems to be a genuine one. HW: 81 SVN: 994.

    I followed the n00b setup guide. Loaded AKAIO and seems to be working fine on my DS Lite. Only trouble I had was sticking the microSD in. It seems to be spring loaded, but wouldn't slide in all the way. Had to really force it.

    Is there anyway to check which firmware version it shipped with? I couldn't find any place that shows it? I have a DS Lite, so it doesn't show those Danny Phantom/Alex Stormrider icons.

    Just curious which firmware ver it has before I update it, so others who have DSi will know where to order from if they need the newest firmware.

    well i bought two AK2i one from lightake and one from 0shippingzone

    the lightake one i ordered on 1/19 and left the warehouse at 1/21
    the 0shippingzone one i ordered on 1/20 and left the warehouse on 1/20

    the lightake order is already on it's way to the states it left hong kong on 1/27 so it should be here pretty soon.
    but sadly the the 0shippingzone order is still in hong kong getting processed [​IMG]

    i really don't care too much on the waiting time as long as it get here.

    Should've bought from a US or Canada company, the extra price is sooo worth it.
