    Well my spring broke and the tape trick, removing the spring, putting a piece of paper in wit the SD all didn't work so I need to buy a new one. The problem is DX no longer has any flashcarts. Any other sites with cheap legit carts?

    as an alternative, if you want to order from a company that is shipping within the US, i got my AK2i from AbleDS. They ship from the Los Angeles area.

    but if it isn't urgent I agree w/Miser.

    edit:
    http://www.realhotstuff.com/acekard-free-shipping-p-321.html runs about the same all total w/shipping, and they pre-install the latest firmware. I've seen it recommended somewhere here before. I almost bought mine from them, but I figured I'd get it faster from Los Angeles than New Jersey.

    Simplymods (US store) at $19.50 or Shoptemp for $12.50 (well I added the $1 shipping if you want the boxes)
    @joe_gamer I agree!

    Simplymods is what I will use next. Its cheap and fast shipping. I would use Shoptemp, if it didnt take so long to ship.



    Edit: boxshot slipped ahead of me. Double check here boxshot: http://www.simplymods.com/products/Acekard-2i.html They are going for 16.50 right now.

    I don't know about realhotstuff, I've heard they have had issues with clones in the past.

    I can vouch for leetmod.com. It took a while to ship to me because I'm in Canada, but from what I hear if you live in the US, the shipping is lightspeed (2-3 days delivery). They give you the option to get your card preupdated with the 1.4 fix and they can include a hori screen protector for only a dollar.

    They have NEVER had any reports of clones and the one I received from them is as genuine as it gets.

    leetmod takes too long to deliver to canada if your using the regular USPS airmail, priceangels.com is MUCH faster even if its from hongkong

    BOTH are genuine 2i cards tho

    This is supposedly what now sells flash carts for Deal Extreme, the SKU's are the same, the packaging, the prices, and the return address is from DX.

    And if it's anything like DX, then it's notoriously slow.

    It's still 41% off at Gamekool, free shipping, $15.10
    But Shoptemp is probably the cheapest you'll find it.

    Yup, shoptemp is the way to go. Legit Acekard2i's and shoptemp is reliable..so far.

    +1 AK2i for $11.50 is the cheapest you'll ever find it.
