    Galaxy Eagle i- An Acekard 2i Clone

    It has been confirmed by sources close to the AKAIO developers that the Galaxy Eagle i is an Acekard 2i clone. While the GEi developers would have you believe otherwise, the firmware has been examined and the following facts emerged. The GEi is running a combination firmware solution which incorporates an R4-like firmware (based on the official AK2i firmware which Acekard modified to look like the R4 for their official OEM R4Ultra) and the decrypted/hacked AKAIO 1.6 courtesy of Rudolph (GBA ExpLoader developer). Apparently the Flash Kit is using both firmwares to keep a current ROM compatibility, however this may be incorrect as the firmware was only briefly examined.

    If you purchase the Galaxy Eagle i you are supporting clones, clones hurt the original hardware by offering a cheaper version to the public that, more-often-than-not, goes unsupported.

    AKAIO 1.7 was more securely encrypted, and the AKAIO 1.7+ loaders can not be used for AKAIO 1.6. Meaning that the GEi firmware will only be updated as an unofficial R4Ultra firmware.

    The AK 2i is not an expensive flashcart, why would somebody want a knock off of it?
