    Got my Acekard 2i today, but the sticky about setting it up wasn't much help beyond the download link. So I downloaded the new 1.8.0 firmware and it looks like this:

    1.) There's that one loader in the "loaders" folder, but nothing in the "ak2loader" folder. Is that how it's supposed to be?

    2.) I want to add NES, Genesis, and SNES emulators to the card (already have them downloaded), where do I put them as well as the games?

    3.) How do I enable soft reset?

    4.) Where do I put new themes and how do I enable them?

    Sorry of this is a lot of questions that n00bs like myself always ask. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Yes

    2.) I want to add NES, Genesis, and SNES emulators to the card (already have them downloaded), where do I put them as well as the games?

    Read the installation instructions that came with the emulator. Normally they're place in the root of the SD card.

    3.) How do I enable soft reset?

    System options from within AKAIO. It should be already enabled by default. The keys are L + R + Down + B + A

    4.) Where do I put new themes and how do I enable them?

    UI folder.
