    the efa-linker ii aka efa linker simple (jandaman)
    seems to work 100% except the battery is dead, does anyone think that i can just put a battery from any other gba game in there?

    i bought march of penguins for 75cents today, and i think i might give it a go,

    on the other hand
    jandaman wants to send me a new one, which i fear, since manufacturede in 2007, will just be a dead battery as well...

    i just wanna get a sram on the stupid thing for long eenought to migrate pokemon lol

    edit

    well i guess theres no battery inside and game i have? odd..

    It means the game uses flash for saving data, rather than SRAM which requires a battery to power.


    You can do the black tape method for putting in a new battery.

    Except GBA games all save using Flash.
    The games with batteries in them are for Real-Time Clock.

    For the first part he mean all games that use flash do not require a battery.

    Games that use SRAM also require the battery or you lose your data without a battery.
