    Just got a shiny new acekard 2i for my ds phat (no DSi - yet). Been using an R4 clone with SDHC support.
    My question is, what are the (dis)advantages of AKAIO compared to AceKard's official firmware?

    you should have this thread closed because we're not here to be your little guardians.
    read the wiki, decide for yourself.

    There's a reason an unofficial firmware was made.

    Hurrr.

    read the akaio wiki. then run the official so you can see how much it sucks, how infrequently its updated, how slow it is, how featureless it is, etc. then read the akaio wiki again, dl akaio and enjoy.

    We get so many of these, I'm not sure if they're real questions or trolls anymore.

    AKAIO is better.

    i think people just trust in the "official" firmwares because thats what EVERY flash linker has. it's odd to them that a flash linker has a 3rd party firmware, and it probably scares them because they have no idea who its coded by. thats the whole point for setting up #acekard on the gbatemp irc network. people should stop in and get to know norm and smiths. if they decide to use the official, well thats fine, i just can't agree with that decision. =)

    Well take it from me, I just got a DS for the first time and went straight for AKAIO without trying the official. Its brilliant and I've never had a problem with any game I've played, whereas users of other firmware need to patch up their roms.
