    Do other games work? This sort of thing tended to be seen when people were using microSD to miniSD adapters where the ROM might get corrupted when writing to the NOR or PSRAM.

    I tried use another card reader still the same. Other games tends to have this problem too.
    I got EZ Flash IV 2015 Version and use the latest Kernel.

    But only Megaman Battle Network 4 got white screen problem. Other games I played with PSRAM and it works normally.

    You need the soft reset firmware, Yoshi's Island has the same issue. The firmware i'm talking about will load the ROM then send a reset signal to the GBA before booting the game.

    Which firmware? Is it the cartridge? Or the ez client? Or another tool? I'm kinda desperated here.

    i already tried with soft reset patch but jt doesn't work. Notmal ezclient soft reset also not working too.

    Now I'm playing in PSP another problem cane up. I can't use Gutsman megachip or the game will freeze.

    Could you give me direction where to fix white screen plz?

    Try starting the game normally (copying to PSRAM), but hold L when you press A. Also, which kernel? Latest doesn't mean much as people on older software often don't know there's something newer.

    EDIT: Also, what modifications, if any, have you made to the ROM (beyond SRAM patching)?

    I've got the latest kernel(just update to see if it fixed my problem)
    No mods were used aside SRAM patching and reset patch from ez client. At first I used sleep hack but got white screen so, I re-download the rom and not patching anything else.

    Well, try to select the ROM with L+A like I mentioned. If that doesn't work, try a clean ROM without the reset patch, it does break some games, though rare.

    No problem. Some emulators will change the save type/size from the original ROM's set size (like from 64k to 128k, I don't remember the reason why). If the save file is working in the emulator but not your EZ4, that's probably what happened. I think there's ways to convert it back, but it's a complete pain as you have to do it manually with a hex editor.
