    Hello,
    I'm in the market for a homebrew card and was wondering, which card should i get? AceKard or R4DS? and why do you recommend them?

    P.S.
    I hear some don't have wii compatability?

    Do not get an R4 they are crap now compared to some other cards out there. R4 doesn't have full compatibility with some f the better newer games such as SS/HG. Acekards are better plus generally cheaper. I have just bought an Acekard 2i to replace my R4i.

    Get an Ak2i
    reasons:
    if you buy any R4 now it's a clone,
    r4 firmware cannot be compared to AKaio.

    Am I wrong??

    wait, why are the RPGs and the other AceKards more expensive? I was under the impression that AK2i was the best.

    I agree. Is it? Its common sense.. "Yeah I'll buy a card that has a team that's dead/ full of clones instead of the superior Acekard 2.1/2i with perfect game compatibility, homebrew soft reset, update-able firmware via WiFi, amazing GUI, revamped cheat engine, weeekly loader updates, Wii Compatibility, ect ect."

    There isn't a set release date for the Supercard DS2. So it might be a while before it is released...

    At least he got the order right [​IMG] I would still place DSone with 3 [​IMG]'s though, and maybe add a little [​IMG] with the ds2 [​IMG]

    I had an R4 with my DS lite and I loved it till my DS lite hinge broke and the touch screen started failing. That was an original R4 so I don't know anything about the R4i's but the display was simple and you needed to patch most newer games. So that sucked. Got a DSi with and Acekard and I absolutely love it. The display is very nice and functions were great. Settings were awesome and using cheats easy. The backgrounds you can get are awesome and make it feel like yours. The firmware AKAIO gets updated frequently to fix any game loading problems. Navigating through it with the stylus is also very nice and responsive. Going though folders is nice when you start getting loads of games, homebrew, emulators, MP3's, Manga's, etc's on your SD card it helps keep finding things easy. Overall IMO Acekard kills R4 in every way. Go with Acekard.

    The difference is the AK R.P.G has 1GB NAND & a MSD Slot & Open-Source but doesn't work with DSi(XL). The Acekard 2 is the same only only it's not open source & no NAND Memory. The AK2.1 is the exact same as the AK2 but doesn't have MSD Errors although currently there is a bad batch around. The AK2i is the same as the AK2.1 with DSi Support.
