    I think I may be doing this wrong. I have a EZF4 Lite Deluxe right. I grabbed the ezfla_up from dirties review. I hold down R(using the SC-DS's superkey function). when it boots up and I am holding R it brings up this message "Can't File ezfla_up.bin Please Power off and Restart". I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Can somebody please help me [​IMG]

    It must be on the root of your card, and you must make sure it doesn't have a double-extension (if extensions are hidden it might look like "ezfla_up.bin" but in reality be "ezfla_up.bin.bin"
    It should be named correctly already within the zip file you're using.
    Your card should also be formatted using FAT16 if it isn't already.

    I must also mention that the link in my review is out of date - grab the latest client and loader from our download center and check out the official updates thread for anything new.

    What Dirtie said although I will also point out that the GBA loader works fine for updating.

    If you try booting normally (without holding R) does the loader boot up and show the contents of your card?

    Like FAST mentioned, also try holding down R while booting into GBA mode.

    What do you mean by trying to "view" the contents? You mean trying to run a game? Or trying the run the update file? Or the list of files doesn't even appear in the first place?

    Next time somebody asks for a slot-2 solution I am going to suggest the EZF4 Lite Deluxe because it works so good
