that looks amazing. I have a GBA original model with modded backlight that this will go perfectly with.

It seems to work fine in the video!

One feature I'd like to see for GBA ED is e-reader support (both JP/US), with the possibility to start e-reader cards in GBA games. I don't think my M3 can do that.

Another feature is to be able to boot up to a ROM somehow for being able to GC-GBA link with certain games. Fire Emblem Path of Radiance for example, won't link with my M3 since it always boots to the menu. Maybe it's enough to just reset the GBA before booting the ROM like EDGB does though. It's not exactly the same situation as with GBED and N64 Transfer Pak.

I second this, making it possible for the gba everdrive to link with Gamecube by resetting before booting the rom or another way would be great to see and would make the gba everdrive seem more complete as a flashcart (especially compared to EZ flash). Also I hope to see RTC implemented if it's easy enough (although I consider it even more of a bonus feature than GBA-GC link).

Another Everdrive GBA video was posted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLUjMTQFRoc

Looks like there's some new features since last time. Recently Played menu, Swap A/B (yay!), and ROM info. Picking a game from Recently Played seems to do "Select and Start" by default.

I own every one of the Everdrive carts; even ones for systems I don't own. Krikzz, more of my money is as good as yours once you release E-GBA!!!

RE GBA everdrive - will this support GB/GBC roms so they can be played directly on the GB Micro? That would be excellent...

Pretty sure you can't play it directly on the micro, just like you can't play it directly on a DS, but not positive there. I think the micro is missing chips. Best case scenario you would need an emulator written.

Goomba is already available for emulating GBC:  http://www.dwedit.org/gba/goombacolor.php
It's pretty awesome actually.

Guys it's happening!!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kwrz3fW_yE&feature=youtu.be  GBA Everdrive RTC testing. I think the GBA everdrive is going to be a complete product from the start, this is amazing.  :D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Of course, the real engineering challenge is going to be getting all this functionality this into a GBA sized cartridge that won't suck the batteries dry like a drunk at a beer parade.
