    Runs fine here on my imported DSi LL which is basically the same.

    Put it this way: The only difference between the DSi and the XL is the screen.

    not sure. why don't you just buy ak2i? (it's far BETTER than R4i-SDHC + akAIO)

    "Yet" being the operative word here.
    Anything R4 now is a failcard; they're all clones, so the card quality is bad, support will be tacky and will soon stop altogether.

    i see....
    so what do you suggest i get to replace it and it has to be compatable with my future dsi xl...
    ak2i?

    does it play ds back ups and emulators/homebrew etc?

    The idea is the same as the R4, just the AK2i's compatibility and features are infinitely better

    There's an AKAIO 1.6 thread. Get it from there
