    well hello there everybody,

    though i don't currently own a DSI i'm thinking about getting one [​IMG] , and, naturally, that means i have to get a new flashcard.
    i'm gonna buy an Acekard 2i, but í'm pretty confused [​IMG] about which firmware I should use, which leads me to my question:

    What is AKAIO and why should I choose it over the official firmware?

    thanks in advance!


    PS: if you've any tips for me, please say them [​IMG]

    err.... why?
    could you (or anyone else) please explain?
    i'm gonna use AKAIO if you say it's better (and i think you tried to say that) but does it have everything
    from the official firmware, and, if not, what do I miss out on?
    and what does AKAIO offer? (and, most of all, if it's that good, why doesn't the Acekard team ask for
    permission to use it and have it merged in the official F.W.?

    From the AKAIO Wiki

    "Why should I use AKAIO vs. Official firmware?
    Right now the two firmwares can not be compared. AKAIO is leaps and bounds ahead of the firmware it was once based on. It features better compatibility, more options, more behind the scenes optimizations, better 3in1 support, anti-piracy patching, WI-FI updates, multiple patching methods, faster directory scrolling, more soft-reset fixes, a rewritten cheat engine, an active development team, and much more."

    Firstly words can not convey how much better AKAIO is over the official, Try Official first then switch to AKAIO then write down how much better it is [​IMG]
