    So question is that. I also noticed a Acecard2i and 2.1. Looks like one is DSI compatible and the other isn't?

    Please correct me if Im wrong.

    Good places to purchase from.. I live west coast USA.

    Thanks!

    Sorry but could I also just ask ( Sorry but this may help you also )

    Is it more safe to buy a Acekard 2i ( As in less chance of getting bad batch or fakes ) or is it the same odds as the Acekard 2?

    Thanks

    Edit : This is kinda in the wrong section, should be in the Acekard section

    akAIO 1.6 RC2 works
    Non spring loaded

    I received mine yesterday, came in perfect condition quicky and they provided good support [​IMG]

    If you want to get it fast.... Leetmod.com, they're in the US (WA). You'll prob get it in 2-3 days or so..

    For cheaper price 0shippingzone or several other Hong Kong stores....about 2 weeks.

    The 2i is more recent (and yes, it support all current DS and DSi models, while the 2.1 only supports the original and lite), you have a much lower chance of getting a "bad batch" card if you get a 2i, it's highly recommended.

    If your DSi is on firmware 1.4 (every XL is as far as I know) then you'll need to update the Acekard before it'll run on it. They don't come pre-updated from the acekard team for certain technical and legal reasons I care not to get into in this post. You will need to run the update on an original DS, a lite, or a DSi with firmware 1.3 or lower. This is because if it's on 1.4 it won't run the card at all, so you can't run the update.

    It depends, some peoples carts are spring loaded and they don't realise it. With your MicroSD card inserted and locked, remove it but instead of pressing down to eject it just pull it out as if it were a non spring loaded slot.

    Now push it back in and you will see it's easy to mistake it for not having a spring loaded slot if the Acekard has been shipped with the MicroSD slot already in the locked position.

    I know for sure that Gamekool.com sells real Acekard 2i's. I asked them about a week ago to check out there latest Acekard batches and see if AKAIO 1.6RC1 works, and it worked booted up ROMs and everything;.

    It was nice of them to give you a picture of the package before they ship it out.
