MicroSD Card and Installation Questions
« on: July 30, 2017, 03:54 AM »
I just purchased an EverDrive GBA X5 card (waiting for it to ship) and have a couple of questions.

What is the current state of MicroSD card compatibility after the firmware updates?

Are Class 10 cards working? Is there a difference in load times between Class 4 and 10 cards? Should I purchase a Kingston brand card? Will any MicroSD card formatted to FAT32 work?

Is there an installation guide? I can’t find one. Do I copy both the GBASYS file and bootloader file to the root folder? Is that it?

I appreciate anyone who can help out an eager newbie  ;)

Thanks for all the info! It's very helpful.

By "in the archive", do you mean the zip file or forum archives? I've just found a PNG image. Maybe that is all there is?

Unpack and put the GBASYS folder onto your SD cards root, that's the entire magic.

Thanks for this. I guess I was expecting a Read Me file or something similar. Not just a PNG file.
