    Hey, can you guys help me figure out what flash cart is this one?
    Is it a 256mb flash advance pro? I really cant tell!
    Edit: its an X-ROM 512M most likely

    Is it compatible with the flash advance linker parallel port edition?

    Help!

    It does look like a Flash2Advance.
    Then again, it also looks like an EZ1.

    I don't dare say it in all honesty.

    Where did you obtain it if I might ask.
    I can't imagine a normal person tearing off labels on carts, only barbarians do that.

    In a pack with other GBA games.

    A lot of this early flashcarts had horrible labels so im not surprised really, im more surprised with people manage to rip offical game's labels

    I cant test it by myself yet, dont have a working GBA atm (waiting for a good screen deal) but i do have an old school linker for my 128mb flash2advance and i wonder if it will work with this cart.

    I was looking through all the 2001-2006 GBA flashcarts and i still dont know for sure.

    pretty sure that is an XROM 512M, the rom chips appear to be 256M each

    I'm not sure on that, I never had an XROM 512, only a flash2advance 256m

    Thank anyway you nailed it :)
    And im going to try it out eventually once i get my dad's old pc or something.

    Edit:

    I tried booting the only pc with parallel port i got access to but its broken ( the pc) so i still cant test this.

    Hope somebody that has or remember's this can test it out on a F2A linker...

    probably at home
    What i can remember, the flash to advance used a usb to gba cable. Atleast it was my first flashcard, to bad it had a corrupted block at 127 so i couldn't upload some Pokémon games on it.
    Later I traded it for a NDS with 6 games, so it could be worse ;)
