    Thanks maikelsteneker but I was actually referring to how to format from the INSIDE the G6s menu....I've done the above method several times and was just curious to try the internal format option.

    I don't think the G6 Lite can do that, only the G6 Real.

    The last reply is the good one. There are three button codes in the G6 GBA loader, accessible on the loading screen (green text):

    L+R+Start+Select: Erase main memory (Really useful when your PC won't recognize your G6 Lite after several tries). Small trick: if you want to get your data back, try plugging it into a Mac! I managed to backup my saves this way when my PC wouldn't hear a thing (don't know if it works with Linux).

    L+R+A+B: Test the cart memory (SRam and PSRam).

    A+B+Start+Select: Access a system reloader. I don't know what it does; selecting "yes" copies some files and exits afterwards. It seems like a firmware reinitializer, but my loader files were still v4.8 after that...
