    No, that's not possible. It's called ROM for a reason.

    What Takeshi said although looking at the homebrew GBC devices ( http://www.ziegler.desaign.de/readplus.htm#4MBit%20home ) and some of the older designs for older consoles (thinking "keyboard computers" of the 80s) some of those retrofit commercial cards with writeable chips.

    To my knowledge (and I do take great pains to keep up with homebrew GBA hardware) nothing on this has even been considered though and cheap asian PCB manufacture (and even assembly) is better than ever so I doubt people will really go in for it.

    Failing that I am up for designing a homebrew GBA flashcard (or even range if RTC is an option) a la the first passme and whatever natrium42 has done since http://www.natrium42.com/
