Thank you so much for your comments. They are very useful to me.

Hahaha! I like it 😂

How are you formatting it?
Operating systems don't always do it correctly.

Try the official sd card formatting tool:

yeah keep doing it, you'll eventually break your hardware, lose saves, way to go.
There's a reason manufacturers put locks in the first place, this discussion is absolutely ridiculous.

Plot twist the intention was never to use game saves as various GB/GBC roms would eventually have been patched with hacks so no data can be lost, this allows full functionality with the EDGB to play any boarder with any non enhanced rom also from what I noticed the EDGB is too well made to loose game saves if it always resets to the OS menu but if you have a spare EDGB it's worth using it for a custom boarder set.

Please just stop posting and go away.

(and ffs stop saying "boarder". The word you're looking for is BORDER)

All variations of SNES/SFC had a cartridge lock.
The US carts did indeed have a different lock slot, it's sloping and designed to slide the lock backward and switch the power off if you are dumb enough to pull the cart out without powering down first.

Regardless, yanking cartridges in and out with the power on is still a dumb idea.
At best, it will invariably crash your machine.
At worst it may damage something.
It certainly won't do magical things or grant you superpowers or make your dick bigger. And it WON'T magically get you back to the everdrive front end.

Just switch your machine on and off again.

I'll say it again u need a EZ-Flash Omega Defective Edition to do this

Haha! I don't want the defective edition 😂

I recommend next time you get the next one just use the preloaded emulators instead of the GBA roms.

I'd imagine that most sane people who buy a GBA flash cart do so in order to play GBA games.

Your fetish for barely functional emulators is getting out of hand.

The only other gripe is that it runs like shit and doesn't play many games.

Hi everyone. I’m enjoying my new Everdrive GBA 5X. I’m curious, why is an emulator needed for GB and GBC games when the Gameboy Advance supports them natively? I notice a lot of the GBC roms don’t work well using the recommended emulator. Is there a way to play them from the Everdrive on GBA without an emu?  I understand I can buy the GB Everdrive but seems like that shouldn’t be necessary.

The GB/GBC mode of the GBA is triggered by a physical switch in the cartridge slot. GB/GBC cartridges press this switch but GBA carts don't.

This activates the GB/GBC mode on boot and changes the cartridge voltage from 3.3v (for GBA carts) to 5v (for GB)

It is not possible to run the GBA in GB/GBC mode with the GBA everdrive.
You're stuck with emulators or using the GB everdrive.

I was able to find the set. But not a sorted one for everdrive. Sorting the files will be very time consuming.

Exactly

Exactly!

The ODE isn't a competitor. It destroys the ED in every way.
Krikzz knows this. He has stated that he won't be making an X7 version.
There would be no point. Even if he could replicate the features of the ODE, he doesn't have access to the same mass production facilities as the EZ team, so it would cost twice as much.

TL;DR - get the ODE.

So i'm kinda at a loss and know what to do. my GBA SP only shuts off when playing the everdrive, i was playing a GBC game for like two hours and it didn't shut off once but it does when the everdrive is in, it will shut off in 5 or 10 mins. but it doesn't seem to do it with my DS lite. any ideas anyone??

Ignore all that nonsense above ^

Are you still using the original battery that came with your SP?
It might be too weak at this point to reliably power the system and the everdrive (the everdrive draws more power than a normal cart).

Try playing with the charger connected and see if it runs reliably.
If it does, then it is likely time to invest in a new battery.

It's honestly pretty good news that your setup is working at all.
It doesn't for some people.

The problem is power consumption and corresponding voltage drop.
The everdrive draws more power than a normal cart.
The IPS screens draw more power than normal screens.
The increased power load means that the total voltage is dropping to a level that triggers the red light. It's not a fault with your GBA.

Some people have had success using 1.6v Ni-Zn batteries to offset the voltage drop.
I would suggest trying that.

Put the 2 together and you can run into difficulties.

It keep those files on the SD card though, not on the SRAM. So it still has nothing to do with SRAM.

But how else is this explained - http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=8958.0

A bunch of flakey emulators?
Again, this has nothing to do with the general function of the cart in question, the SRAM of the cart or the OP's post.

I don't know what he is..
