    Is Realhotstuff Still a good place to buy AK2i, I noticed they are no longer a Gbatemp sponcer? I've always bought from gamebygame(dealwoot) but it seems they no longer sell flashcarts....

    I have heard that they are willingly selling fake Ak2is so i do not recommend it. Maybe try Ishopvideogame i have heard that they are good in admins own words. i Also just ordered one from there a couple of days ago, so i will pm i have any troubles. Altough there shipping is supposed to be the same as dealexreme.

    Expensive since they have really fast shipping rates. to be honest, it isn't that much of a difference, its only 8$ besides, a normal DS game costs that much so its reasonable

    He is probally just used to the extremely cheap acekards you find at some places with extreme slow shipping because i know i am. Also is it confirmed that dealextremes hw8181 is fake??? if not they are the cheapest i have seen

    Are you saying that RHS is willingly selling fake AK2's? I always thought RHS was pretty reputable since I've bought ALL my flashcarts through them and have never had an issue and I always got my order within a week. Never bought an AK2 from there though.....

    I thought they cleared up the confusion with the Acekard issue. Both the new and old team are still making them, and RHS is selling both versions.


    I just received a EZFVi on Saturday, and it works great so far.

    So ok to buy from RHS? What do you mean by willingly selling both teams, you mean one fake one not?

    Actually just an hour ago I received 2 AK2i from RHS.
    I ordered them on friday afternoon, and I got them super fast on monday morning.
    I performed the 1.4 update myself on both cards and everything works terrifically fine.
    I got a very good deal on the first card boundled with a 4GB microSD , and free shipping on the second card.
    I got confirmation e-mails and shipping notification and I couldn't be happier with the service, it doesn't get better then this !
    I shopped from them in the past ( I believe 2 G6 real ) and I also wasn't disappointed.
    If you live in the States, and don't mind spending a couple of bucks more for fast , reliable service and a genuine product, order from them, you won't regret it.

    I said simply that i have heard that they willingly sell fakes not that they do, and also some fakes ak2is are rumoured to work with 1.6rc1

    Realhotstuff does sell real Acekard 2i. Who ever says they don't they are idiots because they do sell real Acekards.

    real hot stuff knows what they are selling. I don't think they'd ever purposely sell fake products. Other than R4's of course.

    I'd go with simplymods.com for 4 bucks cheaper (18 + 2 shipping).

    Man, can you give it a rest? They aren't selling clones, you're the guy that was starting trouble and saying a bunch of a BS about them in their thread a month back. Whats your deal?
