    I'm just wondering, if I bought the Acekard 2i, do I have to download and install the latest firmware (4.71), install the latest AKAIO and install the update file for EUR/US DSi language issue (whatever that is) or the Acekard 2i will already have those installed when I buy the card?



    And what AKAIO means?

    And do I need to install moonshell if I have Acekard 2i?


    And Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    AKAIO stands for acekard all in one..its basiclly a sorta combination of all the previous acekards firm ware into one
    Download AKAIO its WAYYYY better than the official firmware
    here
    heres a link for everything you need to know about AKAIO http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/AKAIO
    make sure you download the latest loaders here download the one that says AK2/AK2i loader
    unzip it to your the AK2loader and put that in the "__aio/loaders" on your memory card



    u dnt have to use moonshell unless u want to play mp3s(music) and .dpg(video files)

    Firmware, not film ware...

    And it's not a combination of anything, it's a custom firmware made by a few guys, and has a lot more features than the official firmware, and is updated very often. I suggest you take a look at the wiki. Get the firmware here, this is the repack version, so you don't need to update or replace any files. Nice and easy.

    The repack's loaders are out of date now. The newest is May 30th so yes, you do need to update the loader if you play some of the games that are on the list that were fixed.

    That was just a fix for Animal Corssing Wild World, there was a problem with saving letters in your post office. So it's not all that necessery.

    @ Dark X: You can start moonshell2 directly out of the akaio menu, thats what I'm doing to look dpg. [​IMG] I think it should be the same for the official firmware but I didn't tested it.
