    Homepage is at http://code.google.com/p/fas1/ for future reference.

    Good to meet a fellow F2A Ultra user. They're rather hard to find nowadays. Shame you have to manually hex-edit the rom database in order to get savestates to work in PocketNES, Goomba, etc.

    This forum helped me a lot. So here's what I just did. BTW I used a R4 and f2a (not ultra)

    First off I downloaded fas1 (http://code.google.com/p/fas1/).
    Second I got the legend of zelda a link to the past/four swords.gba (actually had this one already)
    Third i got GBA tool Advance (http://www.no-intro.org/tools.htm)
    Now I used GBATA to patch zelda to SRAM because it uses EEPROM for saves and the f2a doens't have that.
    At last I followed the instructions from fas1 (make a GBA map on your R4 or fas1 doens't recognise it)

    From Where???
    that homebrew was written by smiths, of AKAIO fame.

    it should not support the flash2advance:
    so i'm rather curious. i wish i had asked the OP in 2008 if they were sure that they had a flash2advance, because this flashing software has never worked with my f2a.

    fas1 does work on my 256m f2a cart and detected it as a "Turbo FA 256M", same as flashadvance pro.

    I tried yesterday on my Flash Advance Card Xtreme 64, it did work but it erased all the GB and GBC games I had for my GB bridge.
