    So, Ive got Firmware v.1.41 (as mentioned B4) and I was wondering why is it when I try to play some game like Pokemon FireRed that It gives me this messege that it needs pre-patched? Next question, So I prepatch it then it still doesnt work WTF? FINAL QUESTION for $1,000,000, how come I cant play Hacked GBA games on it? (Im trying to play ShinyGold [FireRed hack])

    And does not work with 1 Mbit saves that Pokémon uses. You need to use ExpLoader for that. And use GBATA header fix, or it will not work on a GBA/DS with Flashcart.

    if you flash it in NOR mode, it might take over a minute for the largest roms, but PSRAM should be done in a few seconds.

    this is a typical problem of the shinygold hack. the header is screwed up, so it must be fixed using GBATA, or it will not run on any real GBA hardware.

    Open the rom in GBATA, then click the "Fix Header" button.

    Um, the one you want to fix? Just drag the rom with the broken header into GBATA.

    Did you SRAM patch the game before applying the Shiny Gold patch?
