    Going around i've seen alot of people having trust issues with R4ds.co.uk (And all the other damn sites) People are thinking that it is not trusted and is selling clones, yes it does sell clones (R4HC) but it does also sell the legitimate stuff. this is just to prove to UK buyers that it's safe and quite cheap if you know where to look for all it's Promotinal codes. I will alert you now, THESE PICTURE ARE BAD QUAILITY I HAVE A PIECE OF CRAP CAMERA

    This is the packing (Acekard Removed) and my DSL next to it.

    As you can see in this picture is that it has no open window, proving that it's NOT a clone (WILL NOT OPEN)

    And finaly proof that AKAIO v1.6 RC2 is on it. (You can just see the AKAIO and RC2) >.>

    r4ds.co.uk looks just like the site r4i.co.uk (where I got my Acekard 2i). My acekard is legit (runs AKAIO 1.6RC2 fine) and runs fine. There are loads of coupons for those sites [​IMG] I was very, what’s the word, skeptical about buying from it seeing as it looked like lots of other sites and the cards were so cheap.


    Reading my post back, it just sounds like a cheap plug for them XD It isn't I swear! Either way be careful, lots of people will try to scam you.

    r4ds, r4i, all the cloned sites make me laugh but r4i is the main one since i bought from r4ds but i got it from r4i

    adn note to all if they have sites like this USE PAYPAL, easy to get money back if you are scammed or they are selling you Fake/Clones

    I have had no problem with r4i.co.uk either [ just bought a 2nd Acekard off them and will soon be getting a 3rd ... the easter30 offer helped greatly in that [​IMG] ]

    I am also confused by the first post ... the 2nd picture apparently proves the card is a clone but the 3rd picture shows it running AKAIO 16.2 RC2 which, AFAIK, proves it isn't a clone.

    Do not know how you got confused with that, an clone has an window under the sticker showing a actel chip witch where in the OLD models of AK2 and they are now used for clones ... read this for more info: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=158696

    You're right.... that's a bad camera you've got. [​IMG]

    I'd ditch that LG KP500 Cookie if I were you.

    All the acekard 2i's that i have bought from R4i.co.uk have HW:81, which as you all know, is a genuine acekard, and they always supply a code for money off, a well reliable and trustworthy site.

    I am not confused about that bit rather ... it's running 1.6 RC2 which, if I am reading the change log correctly, doesn't work on clones.

    You contradict yourself though by saying the AceKard IS a clone (even though it isn't).

    Um, yeah, that's definitely not a "clone".
