    Hey all,

    I'm expecting a new EZIV sometime soon. As this is my first GBA flashcart, I have no idea what to do.

    If someone can explain to me how to set it up etc., as well as explain what all this NOR flashing or whatever is, I'd be really grateful.

    Thanks in advance.

    some useful links:

    As of setup and all, it's not that difficult. You'll need to patch you ROMs with the EZ software, and it's recommended to use the 8.3 file name format or some games will get a corrupt save file. Better not export your patched ROMs directly with EZ client. After patching, just drag and drop them to your miniSD card (formatted in FAT).

    About NOR: you can only play bigger games like Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Mother 3, Riviera The Promised Land (all of them 32MB) using it. It is slow to write, but reads in an instant, like a real GBA cart. You can also write to the NOR your most played game so you don't have to wait it to load every time.

    Just found this.
     
  5. Not needed.
    As long as you're using the latest firmware, you should be fine using any filename as long as it's 45 characters or less in length.

    LOL @ my SMA4 which still won't work on RESET without renaming it by 8:3. Is there anything in particular that needs to be done to fix that besides the update?
     
  7. Super Mario Advance 4 - Super Mario Bros. 3 (U).gba

    This filename is 47 characters long.
    What did I just say now?
    Filenames longer than 45 characters don't work properly.

    Rename it to Super Mario Bros. 3 (U).gba and it should work properly.
