    Recently purchased a Acekard 2i, just arrived.

    Bought it at usbextremeshop.com Came with free shipping [​IMG]

    What needs to be done to get it up, up to date, and running?

    Just threw out an old DSTT.

    So Happy, great decision [​IMG]

    You could use the outdated offical one, or ysmenu or w/e it's called but it could brick your card so I wouldn't try it.

    Ignore Wulfgar, he obviously only read the DSTT part of the post.

    Ha, I have an M3/R4, similar to the DSTT, and am hoping to get rid of it for an AceKard 2 soon [​IMG]

    You shouldn't really need to use anything other than AKAIO, it's the ideal firmware for standard users.
    Just make sure you grab the latest firmware and the latest loaders, it can be a little confusing to set up at first though.

    Meh I don't care about the price, I rather pay a couple extra dollars for peace of mind that I am getting an orginal card, from a seller that I trust. I don't want the risk of getting scammed with a clone card from a seller I don't know.

    Plus I got free shipping. [​IMG]

    Well worth the money.
