    I'm trying to get cheats for VBA GX. But VBA GX doesn't have cheat support so I have to somehow patch the rom with cheats.

    There are a few tools, though the most developed would be GBAATM

    The other alternative is for many things you can grab the save, use cheats on a good emulator/setup and then send the save back. Not so good for infinite health/ammo/mana/items but for those that unlock things or give you items (or you just want to get past a point) it is fine.

    I did exactly what Fast6191 said is to use cheats on the Sav file on my VBA then rename that Sav to the exact same name on my EZ Flash IV in order for me to use it.
