    just thought i would post i updated my old card from (R4ids.com )
    R4i gold V2.0 using the latest acekard update it boots up into pippa funnel
    supports 3ds 4.3 as per acekard website. only thing a bit annoying is it takes
    the card about 6-7 seconds to load to menu after that all runs as normal.

    only question i have is even after flashing the cart to the official acekard firmware
    i still have to use the old hacked / modified kernel akaio 1.8.6a if i load the 1.9.0
    it still detects a clone how does it detect the clone , even though the kart will accept
    the official firmware update and run fine.

    IIRC that was a one-off authorized clone and they were given a specific build of AKAIO to use until they developed their own software...

    Obviously they didn't.

    thanks for the info since ackard is gone .too bad they couldn't for the fun of it give us an updated
    authorized clone akaio ,,, haha i wish cheers

    actually sorta i guess they did develope their own software because they came out with a new cart and it has tons of updates .R4I GOLD PLUS supports 3DS 4.5.0-10
    i have not tried this new cart , but they did make a new one i wonder if it it is any good. by the look of the updates it has some decent support.
