    Hi guy, I just bought EZ Flash V plus and I have a couple of questions

    1- whats the latest kernel? the one I saw was 1.8x beta3.. if there is any later kernel (or better) can someone please guide me to it?
    2- I downloaded the latest resetsp.bin, in the directions it said to copy it to the moonshell folder. so then the folder would have that file + 2 other files + the skin folder? am I right?

    I would appreciate the help

    Thanks,
    Madridi4ever

    3 current kernels:
    1.86a. This is the stable kernel which I suggest you use.

    You will need to update the resetsp.bin if you use this one:

    1.8x open beta 5:
    http://ezflash.sosuke.com/viewtopic.php?f=...003&start=0
    Should be stable enough for general use but get 1.86 working first.

    Combined changelog (no idea what versions 1 and 2 are)

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Same thing with the resetsp.bin:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=105691

    19th September preview (not yet posted on GBAtemp). Based on 1.86 but with a few tweaks to things on the GUI front (new default skin, different handling of cheats (not sure what as my chinese does not extend to technical writings). Read about it here:
    http://ezflash.sosuke.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=13132
    In chinese:
    http://www.ezflash.cn/bbs/cgi-bin/topic.cg...rt=0&show=0
    Comes with latest resetsp.bin.

    thanks man, i decided to go with beta5 for now and see how it goes:)

    one thing thought, i have to use a different microSD than the ones i used in the other carts correct? because apparently this uses the moonshl folder.

    They cant co-exist?

    Edit: I also noticed that my card is formatted to fat32, should I format it to fat16?

    I use microSD I use in my EZ4 (no moonshell with the loader I use) and my EZ5 together all the time.

    FAT: it depends (some of the betas only implement one or the other and some homebrews). FAT16 is sure to be compatible and the advantages of FAT32 do not appear until you get into SDHC carts.
    If it works (and it works with the other devices/operating systems you need to use it with) then stick with what you have.

    Thanks for the reply, the microSD I use with my slot 2 EZ4 is not SDHC while the one I intend to use with EZ5 is SDHC. So I formatted with fat32 stuck the beta5 files in there, and it works. Thanks [​IMG]

    Last question, does it not support multiple skins? (only one skin at a time?)

    Random skin was implemented at 1.66 if I recall correctly.

    well, lets say I have 10 skins or so, how would I install them all on the same memory stick, and how would I then choose which one I want from ezv's menu

    Edit: I searched for a long time.. I dont know if I'm missing something.. but i cant find a faq/tutorial anywhere explaining how to skin the ez v.. I have the skins, I dont know how to install all of them

    If I copied a skins content in the skin directory, it would just overwrite the original skin. So how can I have more than one?

    EDIT EDIT: All problems solved, no need for a reply. Thanks for the help [​IMG]
