    I'm tring to put the loader file on my EZ4's sd card. It say's to put it in the root directory. Is this as simple as opening the sd card's drve...F: in my case....and dragging and dropping the file to the f: drive. Am I missing something?

    That's all there is to it. Copy it directly to your drive (F:\ in your case)

    1) Please tell me you unzipped said file first. [​IMG]

    2) Hold down the R button on the DS while you power it on w/ the EZ4 in the DS and the microSD in the EZ4. Hold it down till you get the ezfla_up.bin detected message... Or whatever it says. [​IMG]

    Does it give you a progress bar so you know it's done? I'll be updating mine when I get home.

    There will be a percentage indicator.

    I never got any kind of indicator....but it works so I'm not complaining. Why would other people get indicators and I didn't?

    does the ds have to be flashed in order to update the firmware?
    or can i still do this R trigger + power up trick on a non-flashed ds?

    Some people have had issues updating on lites. Try holding R from a GBA loader to update.

    The EZ4 has two loaders, one for GBA based stuff and one for people that are able to run DS code.
    The GBA loader appears on GBA hardware and when you select the start GBA game option on the menu.

    Do it without your passcard in and it'll work.
