    I tried using it with my original GBA, it doesn't seem to work as well. Do you think it might be the SD card or a faulty cart? The seller won't give me a refund so looks like I'm screwed.

    Hi, I have some similar issues and another ones after weeks of test (You can see all Issues in the reply #199) with several EZ Flash Jr cards, If you have the issues with FW4 1.04e, in Pkmn official games, then I guess your card is defective like one of the four that I have. :s, But if your issues are with FW5 1.05, then try FW4 1.04E. Cheers mate

    Hi, try to use different microSD cards and FW4 1.04e from the official EZ Flash site. If the problem continues, then maybe it is the EZ Flash Jr the defective one. Cheers mate

    Bought new microSD cards, just getting a black screen now. Tried every firmware that's out there. Used it on GBP, GBC and GBA.

    Instead of creating your own save file format for RTC games, why not save a second `.rtc` file? This way, we can transfer the saves to other flash carts and emulators. If you create your own save format, we can't use the save file anywhere else.

    My Everdrive GB X7 does this. It creates 2 files for RTC games. One stores the save, the other stores RTC info. The RTC file is really small, only a few bytes.

    Well... That sucks mate, mmm, maybe trying to use the FW3 1.03? I don't know what else can you do, maybe removing the battery for a couple of minutes. I hope the Developer can help you. Cheers

    Agree, and it was pointed out before by @Localhorst86 and then by me, but we never get a response from the Developer. Cheers

    I think we all here want the Flash Junior cart to be the BEST in the world, it has the potential to be the best Gameboy Flashcard ever. Cheers and let's only hope the Flash Junior team can continue working on it.

    If you are not in a hurry to play RTC-related games these days, I suggest you wait a few days until the official release of FW5

    Is anyone else experiencing corrupted saves for Zelda - Link's Awakening/Zelda - Link's Awakening DX? I've been using 1.05 testflight I think... Released in April I believe.

    So will this need a fix going forward, or maybe a save patch applied? Asking for myself. @EZ-Flash2 .

    Why you not open source the kernel like you do with Omega? i think it will help a lot.

    I played through LA DX on my Jr without any issues at all, maybe ensure the MicroSD you're using is okay, or that the version of the rom matches the version of your save file, if you didn't make a fresh one.

    No problems with saves here, be sure to check your SD card. My seller sent me an SD card with my Flash Junior and it was bad, had to throw it in the trash. Use the program FAKEFLASHTEST.exe to test your card.

    Hi, Jayro, I think that @WiLLiW reported a similar issue with the same game in reply #196. But I've never had a ".sav" file getting corrupted. You can try FW4 Kernel 1.04e Offical, it was way more stable in the "reset-power off/on" saving procedure. At least for my 4 EZFJr cards. Cheers.

    My SD card is legit, so I think I'll wait for it to go stable. I'm not in any huge rush to play it. (Been enjoying the remake on Switch)

    Yes, well I have had legit cards doing all sorts of weird stuff, you should name brand and size. Did you use FAKEFLASHTEST.exe to check on it, and did you format it using SD Card Formatter?

    If you are not going to follow or listen to our recommendations, then you should not bother asking.
