    Hello everyone, i have a gba ez flash 1 in my ds and i play my gba games which are loaded on my sdhc card in my acekard. What i want to know is if it is possible to soft reset the game and select a new one without switching the console off everytime? Basically the same principle as you do with your ds games.

    Thanks very much in advanced!

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    No, it is not capable of that. It is only a feature to some pure gba flashcarts only, which involves patching of some kind or other.

    The more technical reason is that you can boot from DS mode to GBA mode, but not the other way around. Once you're in GBA mode, you're stuck there until you do a power cycle.

    If you had a standalone slot-2 device, you could use Boot-O-Matic Advance to patch the games to reset back to your flash cart's menu with a button combo. With what you've got, all it'll do is reset the current game (which may not be terribly bad anyway).
