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.

    Thought about one of those but I don't really use hdds like that

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Does it cap out at a certain tb
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    no, i can switch to which drive I want to access with a button on it, I have 4 2tb and 1 4tb, all dif formats, so will work good for me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So you could have a petabyte with it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    You made me go back and look, it says 32tb max per drive. It will be nice when setting up game systems, I can carry one enclosure around, instead of grabbing the right Ext hdd for, say Xbox360 games
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So about 128tb still more than you'd ever need

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I thought about just buying a new ext hdd 12tb like you shown, then format multiple partitions on it, but I'm lazy.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Buy 4 won't have to

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It was only $75 so still cheaper than a new drive. And less hassle. It would take forever to copy everything over also.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    You take forever

    She's a woman that gets things done most have big strong men over to accomplish things

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I like retroarch, once you set it up completely, it's cool. Artwork, summary, and screen shots for all your games is a nice touch. It's basically a organizer for all your emulators/games.

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    install done
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    start setting up
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    the setup is taking too long
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    So you give up already? If you just want to just play games, not setup for game covers, details, etc; then just use PC emulators alone by they self. Example "Nestopia" or "Project64", etc
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Couldnt finish setting it up
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And if you ask i downloaded it from steam
