    Middle of the ocean.
    Homebrew soft reset, better compatibility, wifi update, wifi cheat updates, etc ...

    Better compatibility for one.
    More frequent and easier updates for another.

    That's not true.
    Sometimes when I soft-reset and try to launch another rom, AKAIO hangs.

    Why is AKAIO better than.... what? Better than a hovercraft? Better than a good kick in the bollocks? I mean what are we supposed to be comparing it to?

    why do i like AKAIO...
    Main reason, normmatt is very cool and intelligent! as long you report a legit bug/problem to him then he will try his best to fix it!

    I'm sure AKAIO won't be offended if I spell his name wrong....

    compared to the original firmware... it seems that the normal one updates often....

    is AKAIO better because of a very active support?

    There's your answer.

    It's also going to be more popular on GBAtemp Since Normmatt and Smiths post on here, so I guess you could say they have a following in a community way.

    It's been a while since Acekard paid us a visit...

    Uh oh, someone's asking for a big case of TMI from Another World! [​IMG]

    AKAIO is pretty much a deluxe version of the official firmware. And by "deluxe", I mean "Works much, much better" version.
    A dedicated team, exclusive features... everything that the official firmware doesn't have but SHOULD have is in AKAIO.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Yes, Acekard have just released Official 4.22. However, the only difference between 4.21 and 4.22 is that 4.22 works on the 'bad batch'.

    Why are half of the people complaining about how bad acekard is? what is this? a hit or miss flash cart?

    who are complaining about it?

    i guess the same you will get on other flash cart
    i have no issues with the built
    rom compatibility is the best (as long you are using akaio)
    price wise is afforadable

    of course every few good ak you might get a bad one.. thats all [​IMG]
    this even applies to those industry that has QC and ISO controls

    i bought 60 aircond units .. 2 are faulty [​IMG]

    anyway, 2 of my ak2i works flawlessly [​IMG]
