    I dropped out of the flashcart game years ago. I currently have an AK2 and an iTouchDS and my old DSLite friend. I show up here to find out what firmware I should be running, and there's this fancy AKAIO out there, and now I'm lost. AK is open source? I didn't remember that ...

    In short, is that the firmware I should get loaded on my AK2 for maximum compatibility/performance?

    AKAIO is pretty much the main and only firmware for AK2. Unfortunately AKAIO has been abandoned since 2012 so 1.9.0 is as far as you'll get with it.

    The DS (not DSi or 3DS) was discontinued in 2007, so that's not really a problem. It's not an AK2i and I don't own a DSi, so it sounds like the AKAIO is the probably way to go!

    I think my confusion came because the Ultimate Flashcart Download Index doesn't list the AKAIO for the AK2, it lists the 4.23 firmware from AK. Still go with AKAIO?

    Thanks!

    Yes, go with AKAIO, even the Acekard team it self recommends it over their own firmware. If you had visited the acekard website you would have found out too.
