    I recently got an Acekard 2i and a DSi XL. After using the Acekard for a few weeks it developed contact issues and wouldn't work. I paper-tricked it and it worked, but only for one day and then became irrepairable. I got another one, but now it didn't work at all (I only get error messages when I try to boot it) [​IMG].

    However, I also managed to get a R4i SDHC, which does work and does not have contact issues. However, many people seem to hate/dislike R4i SDHC. So what should I do? Can I fix my existing Acekard? Should I get a new one? Should I stick with R4i? If anyone has any advice please post it here.

    Away from you.
    The Acekard has a thinner PCB due to patent issues and such. It's probably dead, zhuzhuchina is offering free replacements (its legit too).

    The R4i SDHC is a pile of shit due to its lack of support and game incompatibility.

    For the r4 you can still probably use ysmenu by retro.
    Go to the dstt section,you should see it as a sticky.

    lol that means it has high compatibility - you should have said lack of game compatibility.
