    Hi all , Just received my ezflash v from DX (second time lucky) but doesn't appear to be working!

    So it doesn't show up as a GBA pak on bios and won't rumble on any games , tried an unpached version of opera with cheats enabled for the ezflash but a no go!

    Is there any tests that can be done to see if its dead ?

    Load GBA EXPloader and see if its recognizes the 3n1. If so, flash a game to NOR.

    Tried latest version of gba exploader 22/12/08 and it didn't work! , tried it also with my SClite which did work so i guess i have a dodgy ezflash v

    Whats " flash a game to NOR " mean?

    If your 3n1 was recognized by GBA EXPloader then you could press the right shoulder button once to enter the NOR mode, you could then flash a game to the NOR memory and play it. The point of that is the 3n1 will only show up as a GBA cart in the DS menu when there is a game flashed to the NOR memory. This has also helped get rumble working for some.

    BTW: What cart do you have in slot1?

    Sorry dude. I don't pay any attention to sigs. To me they're like bumper stickers.
    Have you tried the NES trick (remove, blow, re-insert) with the 3n1?
    If you have, then it sounds like you have a bad 3n1.

    Works for me...
    Is it Ez Flash 5+(maybe it will make a difference...?)
    How about try another version? 0.56 works the best on my EFV+...
    Download the latest 1.86 firmware? 1.90 is still beta...
    0.56: You can find it in the second to last post....http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=108733
