    I have a acekard 2i, and it ALWAYS freezes. I tried everything. I tried paper trick, tape trick, and the tutorial for 2.1 freeze fix (and btw, it won't even load games that way O.o). I just want to play pokemon without worrying about a freeze, but I can't, it will freeze. Help?

    Leave it near a radiator and let it warm up. [​IMG]

    On a more serious note, it would help if you are more specific in the problem, like where exactly it freezes and whatnot. [​IMG]

    Is it just the one game or all games? Have you already tried software fixes like formatting+reinstalling AIO?

    Can you tell us your hardware ID?

    Go to the Acekard menu, press start, and select Help on the start menu.
    It brings up a help window, and says HW: at the bottom.

    What number is it?

    Also, what firmware version are you using?

    by clean install you mean reformat? but I used AKIO since I had the acekard, and I had this problem with it. and to test it it might take 10 minuets to wait for a freeze

    By clean install I mean deleting AKMENU4.nds and the folder __aio.
    Backup your skins and such before you do that.

    If you haven't formatted using the Panasonic SD formatter, I advise it.

    Hmm...what microSD card are you using?
    A slow or bad card might be prone to freezing.

    That 2 in a circle means it's Class 2, which means it is slow.
    SDHC cards come in Class 2, 4 or 6, 6 being the fastest.
    Class 2 is far from ideal for flashcarts, you should think about buying a Class 6 card somewhere.
    Transcend is a popular brand.

    Hmm, sorry I don't know.

    Although whilst looking I found out there's such a thing as a Class 10 card, 16gb, Kingston, £85. D:

    Edit: Yes that looks good to me. [​IMG]
    But shop around, there may be better, faster, cheaper, read around, I'm just one guy.

    Transcend makes a great card. Also there are class 10 cards, but in my experience they don't seem to perform better than a class 6, in fact when uploading to the card seems much slower. Stick with class 6.
