    Hello everyone,
    I recently bought EZFlash IV with a 2gb micro sd+mini sd adapter for my Gameboy Micro,
    I followed this tutorial ... V_Tutorial
    But when I get to the point I need to update the software using the "ezfla_up.bin" file, the only thing I get when holding the R button is a black screen! with nothing written on it. I tried waiting for severel minutes but nothing happened...
    When I power up my GBM without holding the R button I get to this vader screen and I get an error says:
    Battery is dry or first in"

    I tried using many ezfla_up.bin files but none of them worked!
    I'm really clueless about what to do :\ is my EZFlash ruined?

    Thanks guys.

    It sounds like the battery inside the flash cart needs to be replaced. If you google, you should find a tutorial for doing this.
