Coming soon :o



Yeah, I understand this is a Krikzz forum, but not sure why people are recommending the X5 so vehemently when it seems the only benefit it has over the EZO is better battery life (I'll be using my DS and GBASP for this so I can always recharge the batteries before fully drained) and better build quality. Plus it will cost $40-50 more. Can someone who owns both chime in? I want to order soon as I'll be leaving on a relatively long trip and my only form of gaming will probably be with this flash cart.
Well,  the EZFLash Omega clocks drifts over time considerably by several minutes. Also if the EZOmega malfunctions after 6 months can you get an almost free replacement/fix from your chinese seller? I guess not.

Looks awfully like the X5, I don't know how it seems to be smaller as it still has the huge top area for the extra stuff. I think a huge selling point would be if someone managed to advance the SNESAdvance support feature. I know the X5 had native for Game Gear, NES and Master System but as from what I managed to re-create to make SNES games actually work better on a GBA this is a must and would be vastly superior as a selling point.

It's defnitely smaller (see attachment)... The difference is that chips have been moved to both front and back of the card. In attachement i've put the new model over the "X5" in the same picture. Its obvious size comparison photo, comparing new model to the X5.

If you look around you can find the Omega for $20-$30 including shipping. I don't expect it to be anywhere the build quality of the $100-$120 X5.

But it wasn't the circuit board I am talking about. It was the top part, the mostly known as Yoshi Topsy-Turvy stylized shell which had that top area that a lot didn't like as it poked out the bottom when used on GBA SP's. Maybe I am seeing things wrong and that circuit board wont have the Yoshi styled shell and will be a standard GBA cart size?

The X5 has a Boktai style case, which is about the same size as Yoshi Topsy Turvy Case, or Drill Dozer case. You can see that case on the lower board because that is an x5 being compared to two top images, which are the front and back of the new EDGBA model.

The new board 1/3 less than the original X5 as we can see if you put the board on top of the older board... Which means most of the top shell (which you can see in X5) sticks out above the new board. So a new shell will have to be made for this new board, and it will be much closer to fitting snug on a standard GBA.

For better comparison it would be helpful to look at an actual GBA cartridge board (here is a fake vs real cart comparison) image:



As you can see the general board shape on the new board (upper boards being compared next to the x5) is about the same shape and size as an actual standard GBA cartridge board, even has that little U shaped indentation in the middle where the screw goes.
