    Also works fine on emulation equipped handhelds such as PSP, Dingoo/Gemei A320/A330, etc, etc...

    You can use it when using an emulator, or a flashcard. If you meant the original cartridge, then no.

    To the best of my knowledge there are no emulator only patches for the GBA like you sometimes see for the NES or SNES (certain liberties the emulators might have taken can get used by some, usually earlier in history, hackers that rendered them emulator only) or like the N64 emulator level texture replacement stuff.

    The only emulator only homebrew is typically when something is made that does not quite conform to GBA standards, this is rare as well.

    It runs on M3? I remember getting up to one part and then it froze. I believe it kept freezing at that part too. I can't remember exactly. The ROM is above 32MB.

    I'd have to play up to that part again. Maybe someday later.

    they were really careful when making the patch so that it stayed at 32MB and would run on actual hardware. http://mother3.fobby.net/

    it also works on the K1 handhelds, which is a hardware solution.

    It also works when flashed to an EZflash 3in1 and ran in GBA mode on a DS.

    yeah, the k1 uses a system on a chip approach. so its running in hardware but not a hardware clone of the original gba. as far as i've read the other "gba clones" are emulation based.

    Patched GBA roms also work well on the Supercard Mini-SD. I've got Mother 3, Oriental Blue and a couple others.

    Maybe for a select few GBa roms, but for what it offers, GBA, GB, GBC, NES, Master System and Turbografx-16 support and outside those few problem roms, well worth the $20. 3-)
