Everdrive GB keeps resetting on GB Boy Colour
« on: June 13, 2017, 04:01 PM »
Even though the Everdrive GB sort of worked fine at first, it now does a reset loop.

- The batteries are full (Duracell Quantum)
- Two different SD cards have been tried and they both do the same thing (though the high-speed one does a better job of loading the OS) after a failure
- Formatted the SD card and put just one GB ROM on there, same thing.
- Deleted every file in EDGB (checked if there were hidden ones as well)

It seems to be unable to erase whatever is already loaded onto memory. Is there a way of FORCING the Everdrive GB to clear its memory contents?

Damn, that sucks. The only GB/C I have (and the only one I need) is the GB Boy Colour and was hoping to use the Everdrive with it. Marking this thread to check the progress.

Well... one has to take into account that the GB boy colour is not top quality hardware.
Try borrowing another unit and see how it works.

Gbc only has 2 batteries. I suspect that this and the gb everdrive writing is causing it to fail. It uses more power at write times. Try plugging it into the wall and or beefier batteries.

The new gb X series of everdrives are said to use less power.

Ooh, source? Sorry; haven't really been keeping up with Everdrives as of late.

When you refer to the GB colour you are talking about the off brand Chinese knockoff right, and not the actual Nintendo Game Boy Color/Colour?

Making sure we aren't discussing the official device ("GBC" is better acronym), vs the name of a knockoff device.

Yeah, I'm talking about the Chinese product made by KongFeng. I guess that's the console the OP is talking about.

I have both a GBC-styled GB Boy Colour as well as a GBA SP clamshell designed one. Both work perfectly fine with my everdrive GB.

Neither does the  current everdrive gb. As I said, it's working fine for me on both of my (different) Kong Feng gb boy Colour devices.

No one has Everdrive GB X line yet, so that's irrelevant... Not even a preorder for it yet.

Maybe original posters's EDGB itself has been damaged?

In case any one still searching for an answer if you have Gameboy Pocket / Color / GB Boy Colour
You need special kind of batteries 1.6V AA or AAA versions / Extra-high capacity 1500mAh / 2500mWh Ni-Zn rechargeable batteries.
