    ------------------------------------------------------
    1 x NDSi Screen Protector (nds_pc) = $4.00
    1 x NDSi Crystal Case (dsi_cry) = $4.50
    Color any
    1 x Acekard 2i + Kingston 4 GB microSDHC (aki_k4gb) = $36.00
    ------------------------------------------------------
    Sub-Total: $44.50
    United States Postal Service (1 x 0.8lbs) (First-Class Mail): $4.86
    Shipping Insurance: $1.20
    Total: $50.56

    as you can see, my sister just bought me a acekard 2i, and i was wondering, all i have to do is..

    step 1: format the SD with PANASONIC
    step 2: install AKARIKO
    step 3: that it?

    and i know that people keep askin about these stuff, but i always do my research and i'm readin about the brick so yeah.. i wanna make sure i do this right.

    i know i'm totally random and i don't mean to intrude but, the loaders are sometimes specific to some games. like some games may not work with the AK2i for some odd reason. but seriously you don't even have to worry about that. only like 6 games that i know of don't work with it. thats why you have the option of having many different loaders. and to get these loaders all you have to do is search for them...or either that just get them using the wifi update feature in the AK2i's menu and you're good! keep replying for more questions [​IMG]

    The loaders are for all games. Unlike most flashcard teams AKAIO does not update their firmware whenever there's a game fix. They release new loaders. So either go to the AKAIO wiki stickied in this forum to find the latest loaders or update via Wi-Fi. AKAIO only updates their firmware unless there is a major change in the firmware integration.

    It doesn't "mess" up your cards. In fact, it's specifically designed for SD cards (the Windows generic formatter is not). If you have a problem, it's the card itself, not the fact that you used the formatter.
