    What do you think? Witch is better EZ-Flash IV or EFA-Linker II and a reason why do you think its better than its oponent?
    Suggest what it's better if they're not the best. I want to buy GB Micro but before that I want a flash cart [​IMG]

    i have both, the EZ-IV miniSD blows away the EFA II.

    especially in terms of compatibility, UI, and file management.

    only caveats - EZ4 does not have RTC/Real time clock or RTS/instant save.

    if you're willing to spring for an EFA II, i would just get an EZ3, which does have an RTC, and boots games way faster than either the EFA II or EZ4.

    EZ4 also has to be patched to run sleep mode. Which is only a big deal for some games.

    RTC on the EFA II means you can play your pokemon and save file and move it back to the original game cart through the use of visualboyadvance or gameshark/action replay device etc.

    otherwise just patch your your game and enjoy it on the EZ4.

    The company that makes EZ Flash carts are still around, the company for the EFA is dead. So that means your not going to find the EFA II anywhere else besides DX. It would be funny if Jandaman all of a sudden got EFA IIs and being twice the price of DX.

    It takes substantially longer to copy it to the ?SD (the patches are only a few bytes and the techniques fairly simple).
