    [*] Want to know what is this ? Click here! Awesome. Thanks to PlayerAdvance for spotting the news!

    [*] OfflineList is back! Version 0.7a was released on the official website. It fixes most bugs.

    [*] GBArms 2.3 Final is out! Some people found out new bugs, so here is a fixed version. If you have v2.3, it's highly recommanded to leave it and download v2.3 Final.

    Looks interesting. I can't wait to read actual consumer reviews of this device. Can't say I have any interest in giving up EZFA, but I'm curious about this none-the-less.

    Um....Here.
    Reading that site I can't see it replacing the EZFA 256 as the flasher of choice.

    Please please make GBAarms remember it's window locations... I have to everytime drag it larger... [​IMG]

    Not all boxarts, nfo's and screenshots are available I guess too?

    It is a very nice program now, keep up the good work! [​IMG] Can't wait to see that online database voting and comment interface for all roms [​IMG]

    i think that thing is awesome

    and a 2 inch cord is even radder! ^__^

    i would just let it dangle from the PC

    i wonder if it's any good?

    EDIT: hey they have demos for reviewers, do you guys want me to review it for you?

    260 sec to flash a full 256mb?!? And you dont need a GBA for the power source?? The next question is who much? Would definitely be interested if what it claim is all true.

    And it says first cart to support 1Mbit Flash save type.

    Nope sorry EZFA beat you to that [​IMG]

    not too sure about the cable though? might be ok unless your USB is round the arse end of your PC [​IMG] still it looks cool though.

    I wonder if you can leave it in your GBA whilst flashing? sort of defeats the whole point of having no linker if you still have to take it out to Flash!

    ive never bought a flash cart before, but this on looks awsome AND inexpensive (am I right in assuming it needs no linker and you only need that USB cable?)

    That cart looks useless. It offers no new features and plugging a cable into the cartridge is just stupid.

    its sounds less costly to me, no expensive flasher to buy, and the cart seems to have alot of cool features previous ones didnt.

    The ezfa doesn't have a linker either, the cable goes in the gba instead of the cart.

    yeah but does the ezfa have THESE features?...

    Small: Using mini USB connect to PC,Internal USB control chip,no need additional writer and not infract the Nintendo Multiboot patent.


    Fast: Ultra fast writing speed. Erase and write full 256Mbit card only need 260 seconds. Using the newest power saving Flashrom,Saving 60% battery energy than other first generation flashcard.


    Easy: Internal realtime clock, support all RTC titles.Hardware saver support and we are the first flashcard which hardware support 1Mbit Flash save type.

    Yeah, except for mini usb connect(it has regular sized cable) and internal usb control chip(just used b/c the cable goes in the cart instead of the gba).

    I've never timed flashing of roms, but it's pretty fast.
    Edit: People say the ezfa flashes faster than other carts such as f2a, but I only have and ezfa so I can't compare.
