    i recently bought an ez flash iv phat online through amazon for use with my gameboy micro. it works great for playing all the gba games. havent tried any homebrew yet but i wil soon. im having a problem figuring out how to install cheats for the games. on the psp you just drag the .cht file in with the games and i know you cant do that on ez flash cause of how you load the games. can someone tell me how to work it? i have searched all over google.

    get the ez IV client here. Point the client to the folder, on your PC, where the cheat files reside. When you send the rom over to your mini sd card, check off the cheating option.

    I myself bought the same card yesterday from another source and it's yet to be shipped. Just been wondering though if a real Mini SD card is really important. I could easily get a uSD to Mini SD adapter but I am finding it difficult to buy a Mini SD card for they are quite rare now.

    Are you actually using the adapter with a Micro SD card?


    Edit: LMAO, I am PMing several eBay sellers asking them if they would like to sell their Mini SD cards which they have bundled with their phones. xD

    The game name and cheat file have to have the same exact name. The only difference is the file extension. Get your cheats here :D
    #1 Click "Open" to open the rom file (your game)
    #2 Now that your game is selected, click the little bubble in the client, where the cheats section resides. A menu will open
    #3 This is where you point the client to your .cht file
    #4 Click "Send"
    #5 Enjoy, you cheater!

    Slightly off topic but would the same cheat process work with the M3 lite?

    (yeah I still have one that saves)

    Look into this program. GBAATM hard-codes cheats into the rom using a free RAM area. Its extremely easy to use. Pick your game, import the cheat file (.cht) or input your own raw gameshark cheat codes (lots of info in the readme.txt file, if you don't understand) and select the output file name/location. The program's developer said you can pretty much use the default settings for every game. Don't forget to run the rom through EZ Flash client to send it your micro sd card after you use GBAATM.
    **The GBAATM program has a setting for activating the cheats, or you can have cheats activated from the time the game boots. Give it a try. :D

    First yes we highly suggest proper miniSD cards- those adapters have a long history of causing read errors. It is not certain but the overwhelming majority of non software usage problems these days are solved immediately by getting a miniSD and not using an adapter, we know they are hard to find but make the effort (also try avoiding hong kong sellers as they are not the most reliable of sources).
    4 gigs means it is almost certainly SDHC and if not it is still unlikely to work (2 gigs is the limit of the SD spec but a few people broke spec and made 4 gig ones).

    Cheats.... the EZ4 does have onboard cheat support but I do not like it. Go with GBAATM http://gbatemp.net/topic/99334-gba-auto-trainer-makergbaatm/ , yes it works on anything that runs GBA roms. You also have several trainers should you so desire- http://gba.dellicious.de/trainer.php?s=n&o=asc&d=

    I've got an adapter in my EZ-flash iv but it works fine. The actual adapter got stuck in there and I cannot remove it, so that might be part of it... But the micro sd is still removable :)

    GBAATM is certainly the way to go due to the carts not-so-good cheat support. I mean it's there, but goodluck getting it to work

    So it wasn't just me, good. I haven't tried to remove it yet incase I do start getting corrupted saves like people say, so I am just happy that no other devices I own use a mini-sd

    My miniSD lasted about half a year and died.
    I was able to backup everything just in time, though.
