    Hi
    I am looking to buy an Acekard 2i in the UK but cannot find any place that sells them.

    Does anyone know where I can get one from please, a genuine card?

    Also am I right in thinkin that the Acekard 2i can be used in the DSI and the DSI XL?

    Thank you

    Ak2i can be used on DSi/XL but you need an older DS/DS lite to flash a firmware to it first. Info a lot of people omit.

    Maybe these days they come preflashed, not sure

    Lighttake's shipping can take a while, though.
    You should choose from anyone of the below shops
    in case you didn't see this above

    Lightake sells a number of other stuff.
    Just because they sell a clone flashcart, that doesn't mean their Acekard 2i isn't legitimate.

    Sorry to hijack your thread, but I'm in the UK and wanting to buy a 2i.

    I don't mind waiting a few weeks to get one cheap as hell from China.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but since it's become illegal to sell flash cards/carts from the UK, (right?) I've been told you're more likely to get a blag one?

    I've bought most, probably all of my and my friend's cards etc from DealExtreme but haven't used them for quite a while. Lightake seems to be the place I'm hearing over and over at the moment. Are they well liked by those gbatemp-ers who've bought from them?

    Thanks!

    *EDIT*
    Seems that DealExtreme don't sell flash cards anymore!

    *EDIT 2*
    It worries me to look on the Lightake DS card page and to see their Acekard 2i, (Real afaik) right next to the Acecard 3 - 100% fake, 100% Sure.

    Is there anything one can do to check beforehand? I guess that's a stupid question really- you need it there in your hand to check it out!

    I didn't hear about anyone making coppies of the Xmas versions that they brought out, (?) I don't particularly want one of those- I just thought that maybe one would have more of a chance of getting a genuine card?
