    When i try to go to the latest AKAIO firmware from the official firmware, i lose my saves (i cannot load them to the games). Does anyone know how to prevent this from happening? Do i need to give more info?

    Thanks,

    In the "_aio" folder there's a file called "Globalsettings.ini" open it with notepad or whatever and look for the line that says "saveExt = 1" change that 1 to a "0" and that should fix the problem

    or remove the ".nds" from the ".nds.sav" files (the saves)

    but don't do both!

    You can also convert the saves within AKAIO itself.
    Go to the Start menu, then go to System Options. From there you have two options you can do. You can go down to Set file list type and set it to NDS + Sav, and go back, press y on the sav file, hit save ext. and that will convert them.
    Or in the same start up menu press R till you get to File System settings,, go down and press right on Save Ext. and turn it from sav to .nds.sav
