    I just received my ez flash IV from 0shipping zone, and I formatted the card and put the kernel on the root.
    I put the micro sd into the mini sd and then into my eziv, turned my gba on holding r trigger and I only get a black screen.
    Help!

    I'm not using it on a ds, and it is formatted as FAT16.

    The problem comes from the microSD- to miniSD adapter.
    Those rarely ever work with the EZ-Flash IV.
    (Some rare people have been able to use them without problems, but they're so rare that we'd rather just tell people to get a miniSD.)

    Entierely wrong, as you can boot it in GBA mode without any problem on a DS.

    See, from what I've heard MOST people can use the adapters without a problem? I'm using SDHC, and I'm starting to lean towards that being the problem

    Yep. You need a standard (no SDHC) microSD w/ miniSD adapter. Prolly no more than $8 on newegg. if you find real, quality miniSD's for sale anywhere pls send me a pm.

    You'd actually be surprised at what the working/non-working ratio was for microSD adapters.
