    I have an r4 which obviously doesn't work on a DSi, I'm thinking of getting an acekard2i off dealextreme but I want your opinions on the ak2i. Should I go for the ak2i?

    I used to have an r4, then I decided to look for another Flash Cart. Get the acekard 2i and use the A.K.A.I.O 1.4.1 [Proper] for better compatibility. It works on DSi fw 1.4x.

    do you have another DS, DSi (1.3 and below) to flash your firmware?
    if yes.. ak2i should be good enough

    if not get either m3i0 or scds1i (i know, they are a little slow with the update) thats comes with an external device that you can flash your flash cart through your computer

    I have a DSlite and I researched the ak2i update & found out you can use it also for R4i's..... R4i's suck anyways......

    i am also planning on getting the ak2i lol i already have downloaded a bunch of homebrew games and apps waiting for it as you can tell im very excited and but im kinda new to flash cards so one question will all home brew nds apps and games work with the ak2i on the dsi or do some require a slot 2 flashcard to completely work?

    Most Homebrew + Games = work on AK2i with AKAIO 1.4.1 FW (although I am not sure, if all are working. Obviously those newer games that has piracy blockers would require fix. The fix can be obtained once new Ak2i update is release or by patching the game itself.)
    Nevertheless, I am pretty sure that 'most' of the games and homebrews work on ak2i.
    Slot 2 flashcarts are made solely to play GBA games.

    I like yourself had a ds lite with an R4.

    Then when i got my DSi i got an AK2i (after hours of internet research)

    Its miles better than my R4 was.

    I suggest that you get an AK2i and use AKAIO firmware. You can even use all your old R4 saves with no problems(i did)

    Dont get an R4i because they are clones of AK2i and DSTTi and you sed that the AK2i update works with R4i it might, but it also might not as the one you get may be a dstt clone.

    get a ak2i
    for me its the best. it hasnt given me any sort of problem and its really fast
    if u dont want ak then get m3i 0, sakura is amazing and its really cool
    if want a flash card to last then get one of those
