EZ5 Kernel 2.0 RC9 (11th of December)
A few more game fixes
ez5fam_ref.png

A quick update from the EZTeam to the 2.0 kernels used by the EZ5 (all models) bringing a trio of game fixes: Zelda both US and Eu versions should now be working properly (see note in changelog) and the recent Kamonohashi Kamo: Aimai Seikatsu no Susume. In case you missed it RC8 was released about 3 days back which you can read about in the GBAtemp RC8 news post.



Changelog said:
Fixes for:
4526 - The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - USA
4535 - Kamonohashi Kamo: Aimai Seikatsu no Susume - JPN
4543 - The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks- EUR

Note: Zelda saves will all need to be converted with the tool linked at the end of the post unless you are starting the game for the first time.

They only updated again because of the Zelda game since it still didn't work in R8. So they had to update once again ASAP.

People were losing their saves later in the game (although it was a bit hit and miss as to who would) RC9 fixes this but you must convert the save with the tool provided.
People starting Zelda on RC9 should be OK and as the EU version only just got added that should be fine too.

Release Candidate 9? Seriously?

RC usually means the software is good to go and just needs to be tested a little more to ensure there aren't any major bugs.

It pretty much is, but they're implementing game fixes to the older release candidates. They could have been going with RC4a and RC4b for those that have game fixes and then we'd probably still be on RC3. The core software is probably not changed much from RC6 or so since most of the updates have been these game fixes. They could call this the release but then next month when they need to put in another game fix they'll just be back to a new set of revision numbers. It's all an arbitrary system since they're not just writing their own code, but trying to keep up with the cat & mouse encryption/crack game.

Kind of like how USBLoaderGX is on a BETA revision number in the 800s now.

I have added the version 1.01 of the Zelda save tool. Now it can convert any zelda ST saves from any flashcarts into RC9 compliant format.

Thanks EZ team !

Enjoy!

Hi,
I'm using a DSi with a Kingston 4Gb card. RC9 hangs on a cold start, (i.e. from the power off state), it stops at the blue boot screen.
If I go back to the DSi menu with via the power button, then it starts properly.
RC7 did not have this behaviour.
Anyone got any ideas?
