    So I'm getting an AK2i. I have a DS Lite right now, but I intend on upgrading to a DSi later. My questions are:
    -Is this one legit? http://dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.18728
    -Can the AK2i be upgradable?
    -Does AKAIO work normally on it? (Just take AKAIO for the AK2 and drop it on the memory card and it should work?)

    Yeah, newb questions that could be answered if I looked around, but I'm lazy today. [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance for some insight on these questions.

    1. Yes, that's the exact same place I bought my AK2i from. Be aware though that Deal Extreme usually take ages to pack and ship the item. I had to wait about 2-3 weeks to receive mine. But it is cheap.

    2. Yes, they fixed the DSi 1.4 firmware block.

    3. Yep. Just drag and drop the AKAIO contents into your microSD card and you're good to go.

    Ak2 and AK2i are the same thing just one has DSi compatibility =D

    I think it is, my friend has my ds lite now but when I first updated it to work on 4.1 I remember seeing the Acekard logo.

    Haha, I'm well aware that DX takes forever and a half to ship. I've ordered an M3 Real, a 4 gig Kingston memory card, a DSTT, and a USB TF Reader from them before. Oh, and PSP parts as well. I'm used to their long shipping times. But if you say that one's real and that it will work the exact same as an AK2, then I'll get it as soon as my PayPal clears... which should be 2 days. Thanks for the help you guys. [​IMG]

    yeah paypal can be a b*tch to mess with i wish more places took credit card payments directly like they used to.
    but DX is good was thinking of ordering a EZVi from them or a M3i0 when i get the spare change and the time to fiddle with paypal.

    Nah, I use my bank account with PayPal, seeing as how I don't have a credit card. That's why it takes like 10 days for my money to transfer. Fortunately payments are instant, but then DX takes another 3 weeks to get the item to my parents' house, and then from there it's 3 days for them to mail it to me. So yeah... it takes a month and a few days, give or take a half of a week or so, from the time of my PayPal transfer to get something from DX. Now this may be a problem for some, but it doesn't really affect me in the slightest. [​IMG]
