    As i already own a DIY Jack flashcart for GB/GBC games, the only reason for me getting a EZ-Flash Junior would be a working RealTimeSave (savestate) function. As i dont care for RealTimeClock or features like "instant load" - waiting 5 seconds for a game to load is accetable, in my opinion.

    And the DIY Jack also support cheats, which the JR dosen't at the moment, as far as i know. The only thing i'am missing is, that DIY Jack dosen't have a soft-reset function, but... ok.

    Does anyone know if the JR has a savestate function?

    I found a Crystal rom hack that the asks for the time everytime you want to continue your game and doesn't use much battery.

    What about RTC? I don't think the Jack DIY has that.
    I would expect the firmware to be improved over time, if cheats and RTS aren't supported initially, they will hopefully be added. Maybe we will see some nice features from the EZFlash Omega return like per game RTC. I assume the EZFlash Jr has RTC because if it doesn't even have that, it's not a worthy product to release this late in the game.
    I feel like for them to enter the game this late they must feel they have a superior product to what's already available, competing with the highest end EverDrive GB X7 much like the EZFlash Omega competes with the EverDrive GBA when it comes to features. There is no shortage of cheap GB(C) flashcarts with barebones features, so there would not be much point in them releasing another one of those, but on the high end currently EverDrive GB X7 is the only option you have.

    As i wrote above: As i dont care for RealTimeClock or features like "instant load" - waiting 5 seconds for a game to load is accetable, in my opinion.

    If the RTS function will be added, i'am really interested. The other thing is: The DIY Jack has no soft-reset, but i can live with that... no reason to buy just for this feature.
