EverDrive GBA X5 Freezes on game boot
« on: March 13, 2019, 12:20 AM »
Hi all,

I wanted to enumerate the steps I've taken to remediate the issue I'm having in hopes that I've missed something before sending in for an RMA.

Right now my issue is this: As soon as I select a game and run it, the Gameboy Advance logo flashes with the classic sound, the first 1-2 frames of the game play and then the system freezes with no errors. This happens on every game I've tried. Here are the things I've checked:

  • Cleaned contact pads on cartridge and GBA
  • Tried running on original GBA and GBA SP
  • Normal games run fine, my EZFLASH Omega also runs fine (I'd really like to return this and use my Everdrive exclusively!)
  • Roms are no-intro roms
  • Diagnostics come back 100% Ok
  • Tried two different SD cards with varying cluster sizes. Formatted FAT32

Despite my efforts above I am having no luck booting a game past the first few frames.

Thanks ahead of time.

I don't think you've missed anything.
That sounds like an excellent candidate for an RMA.
