    Well? I heard that R4i's are clone of either AceKard2i or DSTTi, how will I know which clone is my card??

    And suppose mine is Acekard2i clone, will I be able to run AKAIO 1.5.1 on it?? 'Cuz the R4i Golds firmware is really old and doesn't update...I heard someone said that "you can use the DSTT's v1.17a12 on R4i's"...please answer my questions and let me know what step I should take.

    P.S. YSMenu and Moonshell came pre-installed.

    Out of curiosity I must ask, why did you get a R4?

    A quick google suggests you will be able to use the cracked version of AKAIO 1.5.1 on your card, which I won't give you a link to because the guy who cracked it is a jackass for doing so. Hence, the AKAIO team have stopped updating, which is why you want AKAIO in the first place - the frequent updates. Go buy an AK2i, don't be an R4 noob.

    I struggled for 2 months....yes 2 months trying to buy Acekard2i, SCDS1i or M3i Zero (even any other EXCEPT R4i)...but has fate had it...my country didn't have any flashcart in shops except R4i Gold, I even had my mom (who went to UAE for a visit) to try and get one of the 3, but even there only...R4i..
    THEN I wanted to go for PayPal just because I wanted to get AceKard2i badly...but parents didn't even say "ok" they hate online shopping and won't let me do it...so today I bought the R4i..I gave up, fate was against me, so be it.

    Amusing, people still think AKAIO is dead.

    It's not? [​IMG]
    The amusing thing is that people still buy R4s.

    Oh year, sorry, it is.

    SCDS2 is dead too because somebody leaked the new firmware.

    After examining the files came to the conclusion that it is a clone of K4 and one of R4. It is a weak clone of R4 believe me!
