    Describe how the games break the AK2i...
    What system do you running, what DS are you using etc...

    I found out some old games that can "disappear" AK2i / AK2.1 from DSL menu!!!
    It is SEGA CASINO for example.

    The game starts great, you can go through many games, but in one DOORS you go in and after that BLACK SCREEN. Soft reset dont work, so you switch DS off and on and till this time CARD is not recognized by DS...

    Solving -> reinsert microsd and Acekard few times.

    Reflash if it gets bricked. I think with the 1.4U uppdate.

    That rumor was pretty much firmly established to be bogus.

    That's a load of baloney. The accusation that Love Plus+ bricks the Acekard was made by a Supercard forum member. Most likely he was just seizing the opportunity to advertise the Supercard DSTwo just because one member had a hardware malfunction on his AK2i which caused the bootloader to become corrupted and it just happened to be that the member ran Love Plus+. Its nearly impossible for Nintendo to spoof up an AP of such complexity that it overwrites the bootloader of only ONE of the many flashcards for the Nintendo DS/DS Lite/DSi/DSi XL. Doesn't make any sense and plus, a BUNCH of members said it worked fine on their AK2i's.

    In the event that your AK2i is bricked for some reason, try this post.

    I too have to call bullshit.
    4096Mbit = 512MB
    FAT32's single file limit is 4GB, or 8 times larger than the size you mentioned.

    Don't be too quick to make judgements. I've tried LP+ twice and it broke my ak2i. Twice I had to reflash the card to unbrick it. Also a chinese forum has confirmed that using FAT16 on this game (and possibly other 4096mb titles) will fix this bug. Until something can be done there's definitely something amiss with FAT32 and 512MB games.. [​IMG]

    I agree. As I said, nothing's wrong with my Love Plus + or Acekard.

    You couldn't reflash an acekard if it was bricked. The only was to flash an acekard is to actually have it running on your DS in the first place to run the flasher application, which if it was actually "bricked" would be impossible. So your quite clearly talking complete bullshit.

    Hahaha, you're terrific, Thoob.

    I can't seem to grasp how you selling your Acekard soon has anything to do with a video...

    However, wouldnt it work with the multiple cart flashing?

    You use a working acekard, select multiple carts, and then swap them
