    I'm looking into buying an Acekard 2i (Partially because I ended up with an Acekard clone because of stupidity and I like Akaio, but don't want to use the cracked version any more than I have to), but I'm not sure where the best and cheapest place to buy one would be. Any thoughts? I'd prefer it be under $20 if possible.

    Somewhere where I can pay with Paypal would be preferable, since I don't have a bank account.

    You can use Paypal at ShopTemp.

    You can pay 2 dollars more and get it a lot faster at simplymods.com

    Yup. I ordered it off SimplyMods.


    When I ordered it it was $19.99, but it's only $16.50 now and comes with a free SDHC reader (this wasn't offered when I got mine).

    And their base of operations is in the US, so shipping is super quick. I was mighty impressed. I always stuck to RealHotStuff, but they won me over. Although I definitely will still use RealHotStuff and ShopTemp (if they offer more payment options).

    You mentioned you wanted them to have Paypal which they do, what other payments options are you looking for? If so I would recommend in the ShopTemp request thread, that you post that you would like more payment options and they might be able to grant your wish.

    www.5thdimensionstore.com

    This is where I got mine. Free shipping but it's very fast. You will get it within that week if you order smartly.

    I got a 2i w/ a black pcb and hw 81 and Akaio 1.6 RC2 works great.

    If you're in the US, I'd go with Leetmod....fast and one of the cheapest in the US! Of course if price is your main concern, go with one of the HK shops....

    By $0.50. [​IMG]

    Disclaimer: Does not include the 1.4 update factored into leetmod price. If factored difference is $1.50. Simplymods is preflashed.

    I was thinking 1.50 with the 1.4 update but yeah youre right.

    Simplymods throws in an USB reader without having to buy a memory card too I guess.

    Buy it from ShopTemp to support GBAtemp.
    ShopTemp started accepting Paypal since yesterday.
