    Like the title I would to know if it is possible.
    I know about this and only a flashcard can do it,but if I inject a US game on a Jp cartridge of the same game for example?
    The game is the same so the circuit should be pratically the same except some little differences.
    GBA backup tool is ok I think to inject.
    Thank you like always :) (maybe not the right section but was the more near because the use of a nds flashcard and using an hombrew)

    excactly.
    sorry for being harsh, but this had been asking over and over and the answer is always the same. the memory chips that store the game are read only.
    the circuit is extremly likely the same, however the chip that stores the game can't be written to.

    anyway. you can get a jpn game and the us version and swap out the plastic shells.. but i guess what you wanted is to write a fan translation.
    maybe you can achieve your goal by getting an old flashcard that doesn't have a sd slot or usb port and requires a linker\writer, write the game, enable autoboot if it allows, make your own shell and call it a day?

    He wasn't saying it cause you didn't know, he was explaining that games are READ ONLY MEMORY. You cannot rewrite game carts. That is why flashcarts exist.

    Don't worry about the terms man,me too seen more and more threads about this theme before placing mine but the difference here was the fact the games were the same.
    Anyway thank you for the clarification.
    Too difficult the second one XD
    If I'll be reallt interested I think to buy a miniSD flashcard gba for 10 USD or near to that :)

    I know the minisd is really cheap also if sold "new"(10/12 USD).
    What's wrong with supercard?
    I think mini is enough for me :)

    the fact ez iv is still getting great upgrades like sdhc compatibility, no patching required now, i have one along with my m3 and i have no much complains about the ez iv

    and i remember reading the supercard for the gba doesn't have a memory block (like psram), it reads the games directly from the sd card, which causes frame drops, sloppiness, and poor compatibility..

    The ds two its imho the best card for the ds.. I absolutely love it and am very happy to have it
    However we are talking about the gba cards, they are 2 different things
    The ds two is a great card, but it's the only card from super card I would buy (and I did)

    I have an GBA SuperCard lite (the one that uses microSD), it's GBA capabilities are actually very poor and was sold mainly as a mean to load DS games through DS Slot2 (when R4 and other Slot1 solutions didn't exist yet).
    And AFAIK the SuperCard SD should be avoided also, while it does perform better with GBA games than it's microSD counterpart it also have heavy slowdowns with some games.

    The best flashcards in market now for GBA are Ez Flash IV (I'd recommend microSD version because finding a miniSD or adapter is hard) and EverDrive GBA (pick X5 or wait the X7).
