    GBAtemp's Official Ewin 512 + Passme Review

    [​IMG]

    GBAtemp's Official review of the Ewin 512 + Passme is now up! You can check it out here.

    The Ewin is a GBA flashcart with DS support using it's own patching and burning software. To find out how this flashcart stands up to others be sure to check out GBAtemp's review. Next up on the review list is the G6-Flash 3 which will be reviewed very soon.

    All comments can be left in this thread.

    It's a real shame that the writing speeds are so long. Otherwise it could of had more points imho.

    How long is the battery life? I have just encountered the 3 hour battery life issue on my G6 (possibly only when I play Mario Kart?) Anyway if you play Mario Kart how much time do you get out of your battery on the Ewin?

    I have a question - should I consider buying this over an EFA-Linker? (not II) Or perhaps even another cart.
    I do not care at all about the NDS features (though I may still use them) all I want is a good GBA flash cart.
    What I want is the best compatibility (ie. no patching if it can be helped) and a long battery time (EFA seems to be the best in this department so far) - oh and it must be able to play 512mbit games (hence my not considering EFA-II, as it only has 256mb of uncompressed space) and have a RTC (see compatibility [​IMG]). Pretty much everything else (flashing times, media players) are irrelevent to me.

    Now, I have a 512 XROM and a launch date DS. Do I only need to buy the Ewin Passme?

    Yes. The Ewin passme should work for you. But the X-Rom will only work with DS games using NDSpatcher or Loadme remember. Homebrew should work as well (although the homebrew scene seems to be all but non-existent [​IMG] )

    Ah, so I wouldn't have the compatability of that list then...crap...I guess I'll keep waiting then.
