    I bought a Acekard 2i for the DSi that I just bought which is version 1.2.

    It was bought from ehaoo.com which apparently doesn't exist anymore.. :|

    But I tried installing it with the latest AKAIO firmware and it says:
    This card may be a clone
    Or something like this, i've tried other firmwares but it still doesn't work..


    Based on the pictures on the Acekard website it is a fake as it has a right angle
    box on the right of the back and no hole above the second pin from the left.



    Is this still useable? i.e is there another firmware I can run to make it work or anything like that?
    Or do I have to buy another Acekard 2i? And where would I buy one from?

    Thanks for the help, really appreciate it.

    Does it say r4ultra somewhere on the card?


    WHich clone is it exactly?

    You might just have to update.

    If you have an r4ultra i can help you get 1.8.6 installed.

    Try the AKAIO from here: http://www.r4ultra.com/. If it works, great, but it is a clone card. If not buy another one from a better site. (or buy a DSTWO).

    R4ultra is developed by acekard team too, you may get updates in the future(not sure though).

    Hope you card works.

    Away from you.
    This was a bug in 1.8.6 (or was it 1.8.5, can't remember, but I suppose it doesn't really matter), once the user soft-resetted there was a 20% or so chance it displayed a clone error message. Glad to see it's fixed now.

    Depends on what clone it is. Wood R4 probably won't work though, it is only for the original R4/its identical clone and 2 other clones of it.

    (if you're stumped, give us the manufacturer's website and we'll see if we can figure this out for you)
