    Hey guys,
    I have a DS Lite. Im not sure, but I want to play Pokemon HG+SS. So... I'm confused about AceKard 2i and 2.

    What do I have to buy.



    Oh and could someone give me a website that will ship AceKards to China? (Quickly/ASAP?)

    order from 0shippingzone..not only is it reliable (imo)..it's also located in china..solves ur problem of shipping there lol

    all u need is the acekard2i and a microsd..specifically sdhc if u want faster reading and writing capabilities..then like Depravo said just use AKAIO firmware

    should be no problem setting it up provided u follow the tutorial on the site..

    2i is for all versions currently released of DS like DSphat, DSslim, DSi and DSiXL.

    2.1 is for phat and slim only

    And 2.1 has bad hardware problems in almost every second cart malfunctions.

    Aside from working on all ds models, 2i has no HW problems widely.

    So, by having an AceKard 2i with AKAIO 1.6 RC1 installed. I should be able to play Pokemon HG+SS right?

    Correctomundo!

    Works for me at least, damn having a GEN II remake on DS graphics IS SO much better than any shit GEN IV has (just as offtopic note to fill air)
