    Is it worth getting the "original" R4 then with wood for a old DS i have? Shop temp is the only place that has it.

    No. Get another better flashcart. Wood is for existing R4 users, those who don't own R4s should get better carts like the Acekard, DSONE/TWO, Cyclo etc.

    I've got to say, the price for the Acekard's are great. I ordered 2 and added 2 8gb memsticks with the order. Then I apparantly payed twice through paypal. After contacting shoptemp they refunded the second payment. They sent me an email updating my status to shipped and included a tracking #. Unfortunately that tracking # isn't getting me anywhere just yet. I'll give that a couple more days, but hopefully they arrive not too long after that.....I paid for express mail. I'll finish this review when product arrives, based on shipping time and actual product.

    I don't think it really matter if it's a clone or not, since it is an exact clone. Runs wood rpg and everything.

    Edit- I give this overall purchase an A. Shipment with Express Mail was prompt. Communication with support team @ website was prompt. Great job Shoptemp

    Received my AK2i +2GB stick. Exactly 10 days after I ordered. Now I just have to figure out how the hell to flash this card so it will work. :|

    Ironically it looks like Shoptemp have started a flashing service for the AK2i.
    Pay them a token fee and they'll flash it for you.

    The AK2i card do not come pre-flashed to v.1.4 from Shop Temp, do they?

    Actually, they just started a premium flashing and updating service.
    Pay a token sum and they'll update it for you.

    Good to hear that a fellow Irishman got quick delivery. I'm down in the south, though. I ordered the same card as well.
