    While i wait for my ak2i to arrive, i set up my microsd, tell me if i missed anything.
    I copied the _aio and akmenu4.nds to the root. I updated the loader and wifi plugin (does that actually affect wifi games or is it only used for updating firmwares via wifi?)
    Now, if i only want to play ds games and nothing else (also no CHEATS) what can i delete?

    Wi-fi plugin is for updating loaders and such via wi-fi. It has no effect on wi-fi games. I repeat, it has NO effect on wi-fi games. If you don't want cheats, you can probably delete everything in the cheats folder. Notice I say probably, because I have no clue what will happen if you do. I keep them there mostly for backup activators (i.e. Chrono Trigger).

    And since you're using an ak2i, I implore you to make sure you're using AKAIO 1.4.1., as older versions of AKAIO can and will brick your card.

    Well....what extention are they? I'm not all too familiar with R4's. AKAIO can read .nds.sav and .sav, just before you play any games check that you set it to the right extention.

    i would only delete files and not folders, although i have not tried the former. if it screws up just throw the firmware back on. then again the ak2i loves to be ultra-sensitive and brick the dsi mode.
