    EZ5i kernel 3.0 OB5 and EZ5 kernel 2.0 RC20
    New features and game fixes.
    [IMG]

    The EZTeam have released an update for the EZ5 and EZ5i, a bunch of game fixes and some new additions to each. It has been this way for a while now but for those that missed it the EZTeam split the kernels for the EZ5i (note it needs v101 firmware- see the initial 3.0 release for more on this) and the old EZ5 models (original, NYE and plus) to enable them to manage updates more easily.
    This release fixes a few games (including some with long standing gripes) and has some additions/fixes for both kernels including decryption of roms with the secure area encrypted. It is not so common but against the advice of many several release groups have released roms with the area encrypted- you can decrypt them manually with tools like eNDryptS but this allows you to do it on cart. It should be fairly quick now (a few seconds) compared to the pre release version you might have seen.

    Nothing launches DSi mode yet. Might make games with DSi features run, but not in DSi mode. Also, DSi exlusives are most likely a NO. Haven't personally tested any DSi feature games, but I could tomorrow.

    Tested with everything listed, and the new kernal works perfectly! Great job EZ Flash team!
