    G6 V4.0 Full Installation Package V4.0c is out as 11/07. You can find it here. Fixes Rockman ZX save problems... Can anyone test it with G6 Lite English/chinese versions and tell us if they can update?

    U-disk Manager V4.0C + Loader V4.0C:
    ====================================
    Support running "rockman" with perfect save function.
    No need to use additional game card to store save data.

    Nice, but I wish they would make the seperate parts available for download, I don't want to have to download all 42MB of it again just for the loader and G6 Manager.

    I can update to the English loader with no issues - and the Rockman ZX save does indeed work, even after powering off.

    yes but you hadn't any problem with installing v4.0a of the english loader
    unfortunately, the chinese g6 lite doesn't work with the english loader

    I updated my G6 Lite with the 4.0c chinese firmware, it works. Then I overwrited it with the english 4.0c firmware, that also works.

    Didn't they used to have an update available for people who had a previous full installation?

    nope..you don't have to re-upload all your games when you update G6 GM or Loader from 4.xx to 4.xx..just delete the roms that didn't work on the previous release and re-up that certain game after you did the update

    They used to, that's why it's a bit strange that the G6 team are doing things differently now [​IMG]

    I vaguely remember reading somewhere that the G6L has 16mb of memory apart for the loader,
    so it shouldn't take up your main, memory however I'm not sure.

    In anycase I'd be more interested in knowing if the english loader can be hacked to make it be
    recognized as the chinese loader by the hardware, that way people who bought their G6L
    from China could have the loader in english.

    I just got my G6 lite. Can't get English version to work after many attempts. I have the latest Chinese version 4.0c installed - bugga.

    Yes, the G6 Lite has an extra 16Mbit of space where it stores the GBA/NDS loaders, so you do have access to the full 4Gbit of the cart.

    the pda function is stored in the 512MB of the G6, so deleting it would help, however, it would just freeze when you try to load it

    The PC loader program is the same for every version. The only difference is the Chinese words in place of something like [Y button] GBA mode or [Y button] (Chinese).
