    Same keys than the soft reset : L+R+A+B.
    Of course soft reset and RTS must be ON in order to make it work. [​IMG]

    Copy of the newspost.

    The EZTeam have released RC4 of the 2.00 line for the EZ5 (all versions), for those just coming to the EZFlash range the EZ5 has been seeing a complete rewrite of the code and versions released throughout this rewrite as features return. This release sees the return of savestates, loader level support for the EZ 3 in 1 and the in game text reader. The text reader format (WLK) is now not made by the EZ5 like it did before but in return it gained some formatting support for which the EZTeam released a GUI based Windows tool.

    Yay! an update, can't wait to try it out. Thanks for the news Mbmax and FAST6191.

    EDIT: The Walkthrough Tool looks much better than I expected it would.

    Make the official kernel already (with in game guide) and you'll have another customer, EZ team.

    Sorry my Acekard2i, you'll be relegated to "2nd cart" status. I'll always go to you for the newest games, tho.

    Thanks for the update! [​IMG]
    I just had a question if someone is willing to answer me.
    I've noticed that the firmware has created a ROMDAT folder.
    I remember reading that it contains the save files for my games.
    If that's the case, is it normal for me to have both a ROMDAT folder and a SAVE folder?
    I thought that, after updating to 2.0, it would keep using my old SAVE folder and that it wouldn't need to create a ROMDAT folder.
    Can someone explain this to me, please?
    Thanks a lot [​IMG]

    ROMDAT folder is where are stored all your game's parameters (SR ON or OFF, cheat ON/OFF and cheats selected, In Game Guide ON/OFF ... etc)
    SAVE folder is where all your game's saves are stored. [​IMG]

    This is the first time i tried to use a 2.0 kernel (till now i've been using the lastest 1.9ob). For some reason it doen't work. It stays still while loading the kernel and in the upper screen this text appears:

    "readsize 18002 at 21a6218
    ._6bit mode
    Fatal error: glsafemalloc(0byte);
    Application Halted!!"

    Do you know what the problem might be?? i'm using a DSLite with a EZV Plus and a kingston 4gb class4 micros sd (never had a problem with it).

    Thank you.

    Edit: i just tried with 2.0 beta3 and i get the exact same error =/

    ^^^Try the upgrader first, you may have to upgrade your cart before using 2.0 firmware kernels.

    Nice to see that cheats are back and working again [​IMG]

    Umm, seems there are some bugs with this update, in that it's corrupting and deleting data.

    There was a bug in previous RCs versions where the kernel create wrongly folder /SAVE and /ROMDAT when they are not on the microSD.
    Normally this bug is fixed.
    When you try a new kernel please backup your data on PC and restart with a fresh formatted microSD to avoid false bug. Unzip the new kernel on root and copy back only your games and saves. Also copy the last usrcheat.dat into /EZshell folder.

    If this happen again under RC4 even after this manipulation then yes, we have a bug (fat corruption).

    @Doornick : try this on your ez5 plus.

    I did that and i still get the same error. I also tried with another mSD and still doens't work.
    There is a guy who posted in the EZ forum about the same error as mine, but he has a EZV (mine is plus) and a SD card (mine is SDHC). Could there be some kind of bug??
