Just to add on to the methods above, possibly from another comment on the forums, but the sure-fire way for me to get it to work was:

Play normal regular GBA game
Put Pocket in sleep mode
Take GBA game out
Put in Omega DE
Wake up Pocket
Hit Play Cartridge

Anybody managed to avoid the Omega (none DE) nag to update from v7 to v9? Every game works fine, but I still have to dismiss this message whenever I boot up. Cart is updated to v9.

This won't get fixed likely without an update from either EZflash or Analogue.

You can "downgrade" your kernel to v7 using Internet Web Archive and going back to whenever it was the current firmware. It would ultimately remove the nag but then also remove the features or improvements added in v8 and v9.

EZ-Flash Omega Changelog
K109 FW9
Fixed the embedded Goomba unable to save issue.

K108 FW9
Fixed some known issues(DBZ series anti-piracy, Digi Communication 2 save issue)

K108 FW8
Fixed the random freezing issue which existed years

I've attached it below, but I got it from here if you wanna snag it yourself: https://web.archive.org/web/20200701162427/http://www.ezflash.cn/product/omega/

Thanks for this!

In addition.... if anyone wants to avoid the v7 / v9 nag using the popular Simple theme, this firmware version from late 2020 works great

Yeah same boat, my DE works like a charm. My Everdrive works just fine too, so I am not sure why that works for some people but not for others.
My Omega DE that stopped working after a couple weeks started working again after Pocket update 1.0B!

So strange that so many people are having suck different experiences with the same flash cart.

I have both Omega and DE. The DE edition did not work on the previous Pocket FWs however never had problems with the Omega. I did not want to update just in case but yesterday I had upgraded my Pocket and .... surprise! Both Omega and DE work like a treat!
