    It was the card to have during the early 3DS era because it was so easily updateable during the cat and mouse game Nintendo had with flash cart manfacturers, but its interface is clunky and it draws a lot of power. Nowadays I prefer the Acekard 2i with AKAIO as menu.

    How is the interface clunky? And it has some special RealTime features and stuff.

    I can only say I don't like it a lot. Choosing a game feels slow as molasses.

    I didn't mind the OS

    I really, really didn't like the power it would suck idling though and after 3DS was blown open and GBA/SNES surpassed what it could manage I ended up selling off the LE I had for way more than it probably is worth.

    But, now I have the iEvo and despite the terrible DSi mode it's a really nice DS mode cart though.

    I only have the Supercard DSTWO (not + model) witch I don't use any more because of the Twilight Menu.

    Supercard DSTwo (Non-plus model), though the build quality of those cards was crap so it's fallen apart but can still work if sandwich the parts together I insert it just right... and a DSTTi.

    Excuse the dust on the DSTWO card, it doesn't really see much use anymore.

    But you sure always have fun when you use the DSTwo:

    Suspense (if the Card still survives the insertion), fun (yes, it still holds) and play.:D

    I have two bricked cards i've tried to recover so much, but to no avail. It's a white R4 SDHC clone and an Acekard 2i.

    I then bought a new (like 2 years ago) R4Gold Pro. The Gold Pro has been working flawlessly on both my systems (n3ds and dslite).

    Now thinking about it, i really miss the Acekard 2i. A pity i wasnt able to recover it.

    Got 2 cards. A "R4-SDHC Upgrade" which I don't really use and a "Acekard 2i" which I use in my DSi.

    Eh, at this point i'm doing good with the GoldPro, if i ever decide to try to recover them again i'll give it a check, but i've spent way too much time trying to ressurect them with no success.

    I was just posting them because this is what the thread is about, not intentionally asking for help with recovering them btw :P

    EDIT: Thinking about it, i think i wasnt able to ever recover the Acekard to a functioning state, but i was at least able to use it to boot the cfw file for the 3ds (NTRBoot i think?) So it's not entirely useless, but i do miss the Acekard Kernel.
