    Is there an ETA on when the next updates would come out?

    They only update when an update is needed, at the moment everything works

    they don't update the firmware very often, only when it's neccesary.
    But they do update the loaders and the cheat database often.

    Do you think there will be an update around the time Pokemon HGSS comes out?

    basically I'm having a save issue with the newest firmwares, I'm just hoping they correct it in new updates.

    I actually would not be surprised if the AKAIO loaders available during the US/EU release of Pokemon HGSS automatically patch the AP. The AKAIO team is smart, always thinking ahead and are really good when it comes it game fixes, especially Normmat. You can always count that guy for a game fix, he hasn't failed us yet [​IMG]

    As for your save issue, if you're 110% sure that the AKAIO firmware is set up correctly on your AK and you're still getting errors, you have a bad AK2. The Acekard team has had a bad batch of AK2's in the last couple of weeks. Basically what happened is that there are two companies making AK2's using different hardware but they both still work, one just came out with a bug (the newer company). Go to seller and tell them you keep having save issues, they'll know what you're talking about since its only happened like a million times to new Acekard users. If they don't give you a replacement for free, report it to the Acekard Team and they should give you a replacement since the AK2 has a 1 year warranty from the Acekard Team by default. Since you're in the US, I suggest RealHotStuff.com. They buy their Acekards from the original company, the old company, which should guarantee you a good AK2 & if its an AK2i you're buying, then RHS already updated it to 1.4 for you [​IMG]

    Yeah the guy at Realhotstuff said I have a 90 day warranty. So I'm gonna wait to make sure that a new firmware doesn't fix the issue before I return it

    I don't think that the warranty is for your satisfaction. Its for if your AK is broken.

    Well clearly it IS broken/defective, brah.

    The only problem is that it seems like such a friggin hassle to have to pack it up and ship it back

    I have spoken recently to a gamer who had a similar problem as you, they sent their acekard back (not sure if it was to acekard or their supplier), but they returned the acekard back to this person with firmware v 4.07 installed on the card and a message "The reason your card is not working is because you need to use version 4.07"

    I was like [​IMG]

    That's what firmware I'm using right now. It's the only thing remotely working. Of course, the problem is that it doesn't work on a lot of newer games.

    I really wish there were more patched games. I really want a patched Mario and Luigi.

    Yes i know, if you have spent your money on a acekard 2i then you should be able to run whatever firmware you want, i only mentioned what happened to this other gamer to pre-warn you.

    The saddest part is that I didn't realize that a AK 2i actually worked on DS lite...I just thought it was DSi only.

    would have bought that instead.

    you haven't got a 90 day warranty, you've got 1 year warranty from acekard.
    Try emailing them, maybe they'll send you a new one or give you some instructions on how to solve it.

    Most people won't link you to it cuz AKAIO is better. ITS NOT A FIRMWARE PROBLEM. If it was, the AKAIO Team would have fixed it by now.

    Here's a link to YSMenu anyways, there's an english Read Me inside. Yasu's Site. Go down a little more than halfway. You'll find the DS(T_T)DS section. Click on the YSMenu link in white/ underlined.
