    I spent a nearly 2 more hours reading and figured things out okay.

    I was just wondering if the beefed up DSTTi can do the same as a Acekard 2i.

    If you were wondering that you are better off with a acekard 100% sure but DSTTi is not a bad card at all.

    It'd be smarter to get an AK2i. But I guess DSTTi ain't too bad, but like I said, your better off getting an AK2i.

    If the Akaio team don't work on an Acekard, it'd be the same. Seriously, guys, these kinds of arguments are irrelevant.

    Away from civilization.

    It's not really much of an argument, but if you want to make sure your money isn't wasted, I'd probably say Acekard.

    The dstt gets updates every week the Acekard, not so much. the Acekard is still the better of the two.

    And the Acekard 2i will get a system update quite fast (at least that what's everybody expecting).

    The DSTTi took month last time for an update to 1.4...

    Despite the admirable work that Pong and Retro do I would still recommend the AceKard2i.

    Before they started working fixes there were only some japanese fixes and still it may take pretty long for some games to get fixed. For example nobody haven't fixed Jam with the band for DSTT and it's been fixed for acekard for ages. Do remember that official DSTT team has abandoned cart while acekard still have official team and akaio team.
    Oh, and don't forget that DSTT own menu isn't practical when card has many games or moonshell2 installed. Also its slower.

    As much as I love Pong and Retro's work, I would go with the Acekard 2i.
    Acekard just as more to offer.
    Although both cards now have a flaw, where if the unofficial teams quite, the users are fucked till a new team is started

    I would go for acekard, mainly for the menu (sub-folders support, nice interface, well-organized).

    One's inner self
    i would say acekard if its a choice between the 2
    most likely only one gonna be working soon on 1.4.1

    plus have better loaders and built better

    as myself and retro cannot update the loaders or flash it (we just dont know how to)

    acekard much better

    DSTwo in my view is the clear head runner tho
