    Hey guys, I FINALLY found a Japanese hacker who made a quality browser patch custom tailored for the Ewin.

    I converted it to an ips patch and put it up with the other JP version patches. You can get it here:

    It works beautifully, though it seems to add about five seconds to the load time, and I'm not sure why this is. In any case, it beats resetting or using the GBA Loader, as was necessary before.

    Here's the deal though. I utterly failed to convert this to a viable patch for the EU version of the browser, mainly because I don't really know what I'm doing; I just followed instructions with a hex editor. Personally, I prefer to use the Japanese version anyway, so I'm not really in the mood to mess around anymore.

    But if anybody wants a quality Ewin browser patch for the EU version and is willing to put in a little time in a hex editor, I'll go ahead and spell out the modifications to the Japanese version here:

    1) From 00004800, change four bytes from 01 C3 A0 E3 to EA 30 05 EA .

    2) From 00150BB0, change 268 bytes (should all be zeros) to D8 00 9F E5 B0 10 D0 E0 21 14 A0 E1 01 14 A0 E1 14 20 A0 E3 00 10 82 E3 01 18 A0 E1 21 18 A0 E1 B0 10 C0 E0 B8 00 9F E5 00 00 F0 E4 B4 00 9F E5 00 00 F0 E4 B0 00 9F E5 00 00 F0 E4 AC 00 9F E5 08 10 A0 E3 00 10 E0 E4 00 00 F0 E4 00 00 A0 E3 02 13 A0 E3 02 25 A0 E3 01 00 A0 E3 00 0A A0 E1 00 00 A0 E1 04 00 A1 E4 04 20 42 E2 00 00 52 E3 FB FF FF 1A 78 10 9F E5 50 00 8F E2 00 20 A0 E3 02 30 90 E7 02 30 81 E7 04 20 82 E2 10 00 52 E3 FA FF FF 1A 5C 10 9F E5 02 01 A0 E3 01 00 40 E2 00 00 A1 E4 50 10 9F E5 01 00 A0 E3 00 00 A1 E4 01 C3 A0 E3 44 10 9F E5 44 00 9F E5 00 00 A1 E4 08 00 81 E5 3C 00 9F E5 04 00 81 E5 E0 CE FA EA FF FF 00 00 00 24 24 24 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF 7F 04 02 00 04 55 55 00 0A AA 2A 00 0A 55 B0 00 0A 00 00 00 0A B0 00 00 08 FC FF 01 08 00 00 24 08 30 FC 3F 02 FF FF FF FF FF 00 FF FF .

    The problem is, the EU version requires different addresses to be patched. I moved the stuff in step 2 to the right place, but I don't have a clue what to do for step 1. So if anybody wants to take up this small project, cheers to you.
