Package and Image

cheap 2017 gba flashcart ezflash reform

It includes:

  • 1 * PCB Board
  • 2 * Card ases(one big case and one small case, you can change the case easily to suit the all consoles)

Cart and design

As you can see, the cart does look quite modern and you can see a Micro SD slot on the side of the top and bottom. The bottom item pretty much looks like a normal GBA Cart apart from the modern design. The box also has quite a modern look with a Nintendo DS on the front with an orange box (The cart I think) on the DS.

  • It says in the bottom left corner that it supports Micro SDHC Cards.
  • In the bottom right corner it says that it supports GBA, DS and DS Lite.

Kernel and game compatibility

EZflash reform is working with the latest kernel for EZFLASH IV. The most version is V2.04, user can download from here. Now with the newest kernel 2.04, transferring of GBA roms via EZ4_Client on PC is no longer needed, as the EZ-Flash Reform flashcart itself will patch GBA roms. I have tested aroundt 50 GBA roms, most of them can be patched by the flashcart normally, while only about two GBA games can’t be played normally after being patched. One is Double Dragon Advance, because this GBA game itself doesn’t need a save file. The other is Mother 3, since the picture shown wasn’t complete.

Softwares and Hardwares

Hardwares Softwares
  1. New PCB, about half of the size of the old EZ Flash IV. Due to this fact, the PCB can better fits into the shell for the NDSL.
  2. Adopts battery holder design, making is more easily to change the battery.
  3. TF card slot gives up the old click design, with no spring – pure physical plug-in/unplug, more reliable.
  4. Better molding and more delicate material.
  5. Two spare shells, better fits into GBA/GBA SP, NDSL consoles.
  1. There is no problem in the NORFlash chip itself. There may be accidental white screen or blurred screen problem when using GBA blacklit model to flash GBA roms to NOR memory, which results from unstable voltage.
  2. Again, like always there is no RTC(real time clock), RTS(real time save), and also it takes time to flash roms to NOR memory. But anyway, what matters is its reliability for GBA players.
  3. The EZ-Flash Reform flashcart is better in battery saving, which I guess is partially due to its newly-designed PCB.

Price and where to buy?

Like I said above, it is indeed a cheap gba game flashcart to buy for your any GBA/SP/NDS/NDSL handhelds in 2017. Its price is no more than $48. However, the other brands like the Everdrive GBA and Supercard dstwo+, they are costing you as high as 100$ and 60$. So why not to choose this much cheaper one? It supports most GBA roms and is not hard to use. More importantly, ezflash reform is coming from the reliable site EZFLASH.CN, which is developing gbaflashcarts from a very early year.
