I've got an EZ Flash IV running 1.74_RESET. Any reason to upgrade?

    I don't have any issues that I know of other than some games ignoring the reset-combination, but that is probably an issue with my transfer utility and not the cart.

    Is there any feature that the latest FW adds that is worth upgrading for? I saw that there is now support for SDHC cards, but anything other than that?

    EDIT: Shit, my computer messed up when I was posting this and I ended up creating two threads asking the same exact thing. Sorry, sorry, ah

    SDHC support, this possibly also comes at the cost of some older SD cards not working.
    It seems to have fixed the freeze at 255 when writing the NOR that some people had, this includes older models as well it would seem.
    It might be slightly faster in the save department. Not what took 10 seconds now takes 2 but more what took 10 before now takes maybe 8 and some of the extreme cases no longer happen.
    No more DS loader but that had probably already gone.

    So yeah basically no reason to upgrade if you are happy running things as it presently stands. It has not suddenly sprouted savestates, a cheat engine worth speaking or anything like that.
