So I just bought an AK2i and I believe I followed all the steps correctly, but when I try to update the firmware, the progress just hangs at 0%. Any idea how to fix this?

FYI, first I downloaded the AKAIO 1.8.9 and the firmware update 1.4.4 off Acekard's website. I placed them in the microSD card and ran it on a DS Phat. Am I missing something? The microSD was also formatted to Fat32.

is your ak2i real? are you 100% sure?

make sure you use the panasonic formatter.

If AKAIO fails to work then run the update using the Acekard official kernel v4.23
try that and see if it works.

It seems to be a clone, and I tried everything you said. The card seems to work fine on the DS Phat, it just doesn't want to update..

if it works on the ds phat, why not run the update on the ds phat?

does your ak2i have the anti-counterfeit code sticker on the back? have you checked it?

That's what I have been doing, I run the update but the progress stays at 0%. And it does have the sticker, but the code seems to have been checked 9 times already.

have you checked the code 9 times while trying to figure this all out or was it checked 8 times before the time you checked it? if you only checked it once but it was checked 8 times before then i would need to ask about the sticker. were you the first one to expose the numbers? if yes then you are right, your card is fake. that could very well be why it won't update.

I only checked it once, I'm not sure if someone else exposed it beforehand but it has definitely been checked 9 times already (not by me). I guess it's a fake...
