    I very recently received an EZ Flash 3 in 1 GBA Version from gamersection.ca. Its behaviour clearly points to its battery power being depleted. (GBA Exploader asking to set it every time I boot it up, save states not working.) Below is a transcript of the e-mails I sent to them, along with their response to the first one. (I'm still waiting for a response to the second.)

    Me:
    Their ignorance of their own product is frankly disgusting, and I'm more than a little PO'd that it seems that they won't be giving me a return. I should be able to install a new battery myself, but that's not the point. So has this happened to anyone else? How did the store you bought it from respond?

    I just received a re-stocked EZ Flash 3in1 plus but my friend who bought the last set, which were stocked for a long time by RockSoft, might have a problem. Though I hope it wasnt for the battery.

    She didnt mentioned any problems you mentioned to me but she mentioned she cant play Pokemon Ruby and Emerald. So it might be just a patch.

    Regards,
    Chris

    PS: The one who sold you might not want to give you a return. check first their return policy.

    If your trying to play pokemon, you have to RTC patch it before you can play.

    See if your game requires patching first before claiming a hardware problem.

    There is the topic on this with the 3in1 here:
    http://ezflash.sosuke.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=5342

    The patch listed inside that:

    If your gba expansion is not a 3in1, there are more universal patches available here:

    There is also the download section here:

    Do not worry about dead battery. With a little skill you can exchange it yourself. I've never had a dead battery because I never STAYED with the original battery. Always bought some longlife coin battery to replace the originals.
