    G6DS Real loader v2.42A(X) released
    Adds GBA icon to GUI, changelog N/A
    [​IMG]
    The G6 Team have released version 2.42A(X) (what's going on with the release version numbers!?) of their G6 DS Real loader. Unfortunately the change-log for this release is not yet available, but a quick check of the new firmware shows that a new GBA icon has been added to the UI, this is most definitely the same functionality that's coming with the M3 DS Real - integrated support for flashing GBA ROM files to the upcoming GBA Expansion pak that will soon be available.

    You can download the update locally below. The change-log will be added to this news post once it becomes available.

    The GBA Function also works with a G6-Lite (though, NDS-GBA Link doesn't work). No apparent adverse effects to the G6 Lite.

    Same exact thing as the M3 Real system software that's been available since last week, down to the Japanese loading screen when you run a game.

    I don't believe there are any download play fixes, etc. in this. Which is just inexcusable at this point.

    Ok, i did some testing [​IMG]

    The GBA icon doesn't work with the EZFlash 3in1
    The GBA icon DOES work with the EWIN Expansion Pak (GBA/RAM)

    So The M3DS Real GBA Expansion pack is the same or works the same as the EWIn Expansion pak ?

    Who knows.

    When going into the GBA menu, it shows GBA, GB, SMS, NES, PCE
    - SMS: Boots to GBA shows DrSMS logo, ??? (i had lotsa messed up GFX or black screens)
    - PCE: Boots to GBA then just turns black
    - GB: Boots to GBA and runs the GB rom (NO GBC support)
    - NES: Boots to GBA and runs the NES rom

    i really hope they add support for the EZFlash 3-in-1, but i'm sure that's wishful thinking. i guess i'll end up buying an official pak...especially if they make a DS phat version.
