Very high quality. Haven't encountered any issues with any GBA, NES, GB Color or Master System games. Love it!


Nice work

Es una pasada de cartucho, no tiene fallos y rinde bastante más que el EZ flash IV, perfecto. Un trabajo estupendo.

Designed for simplicity, a high quality product

Very easy to use, which is a drag-'n-drop of your ROM collection. There is no patching required for any ROM. Runs like a native GBA cartridge and its power consumption is amazingly low. If you're into ROM hacking, this is the product you'd want to use. Had this product for about a year now.

Everdrive GBA X5 plays Mother 3 Flawlessly

I recently purchased a EZ Flash IV thinking that I'd be able to play Mother 3 - god I was so wrong, after copying to the NOR which takes ages (7 minutes or so) and finding the game corrupt after the intro screen and literally no support or fixes in the matter I had no choice but to buy a product called Everdrive GBA X5... I wasn't wrong in my purchase not only do this product play Mother 3 but it has the right amount of PSRAM to run 32mb games, that's right every damn game out there for the GBA will run within a few seconds, no copying to the NOR and certainly no tireless delays. The product shipped to the UK in around 9 working days and I have to tell you my girlfriend and I both play the everdrive daily since it arrives. Please don't think your 'emulator' is a superior option -it's not! Emulation doesn't come close to the real thing. I'm also a Gameboy Advance rom dev in my spare time and enjoy this product for casually testing on hardware... the only thing that would make the everdrive GBA better would be a usb, I especially enjoy the RTC (no more patching your pokemon rom night and day on non-RTS flash cards). X7 could include a usb, gyroscope and light sensor to support the very few games that use them but otherwise the X5 is a superior product to what is currently on the market and while the price is higher the quality is reflecting of that.

I own the EZ Flash for GBA, and the GBA EVERDRIVE X5 is superior; loading roms without having to patch, simple layout, easy replaceable battery, loading the memory card to the cartridge is easier, better quality materials. The only thing I wish it had are Gameshark/Action Replay/Codebreaker codes. I recommend it to people who are looking for a good quality flash cart for the GBA.

Great Product and Service

Ordered on 7th of May and received it on 25th of May. Fast shipping to Malaysia.
My everdrive works great. It can run games that other flashcarts (supercard mini sd, ez-flash IV) can't like Ninja Five-0. Plus, it is easy to use, just drag and drop ! .

Awesome Out Of The Box

The only issue I had was the wait, but I figured coming to the states it would take awhile. It was promptly shipped, but took from 3/18 to 4/24 to get to WA USA. So happy to finally have it, and it works fantastically. Thank You! :)

The Definitive GBA Flashcart

It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

Premium pricing for a high quality cart. This is the only flashcard you're going to find that uses modern components which means much faster loading times and lower power consumption compared to all of the flashcards built on ancient technology from the same time period as the GBA itself.

I can only hope the X7 (if it ever comes to fruition) is the size of a normal cart as I play on a micro and it is slightly annoying having a bulge. The LED activity indicator is also a bit bright for my taste, wish there was an option to turn it off as I don't think it's necessary.

Perfect, as always

I own almost all of the Everdrives and this product delivers nothing less than I would expect from Krikzz. The same easy to use menus, compatibility, and great build quality. This thing works perfectly. It plays my library which consists of Gameboy, Gameboy Color, NES and of course Gameboy Advance without a hitch.

Awesome product

It loads games super fast, you'll never need any other cartridge to play those classic games as they meant to be played. And yes, it sticks out on the front of the GBA SP, but that's not much of a problem.

Awesome! Works beautifully

I bought this to help my kids learn to write homebrew z80-like and ARM games. It's been awesome for that, and now I just wish I'd bought two - the link cable is beckoning, and they want to make a multiplayer game.

I finally bought it and I have to say i'am very impressed about the quality! Everything just works fast without issues. Some people get annoyed that the cartridge sticks out but that doesn't bother me at all.
The shipping was fast it only took one week to arrive here in Sweden! Krikkz you are the man!

Awesome Device!

I have to admit that I didn't want one at first due to the cartridge sticking out, but I eventually caved and went ahead and bought one. I'm glad I did.

This thing works exactly as you'd think. You just drag the roms onto the sd and you're ready to go. You can organize them into folders if you'd like.

This thing loads up the games super fast! I also have an EZ IV and the Everdrive is much faster. On top of that the EZ IV needs the roms to be patched with some old software. Not really a problem, but still kind of annoying.

The RTC works fine, although the only way I know to set it to a specific time is through Boktai. Maybe the ability to set it without going through Boktai can be added through an update?

All in all, a great device. No bs, it just works.

I should probably make a video because ive just got so much to s

I'll just keep it simple, get down tl the nitty gritty


Works as advertised, no issues.
RTC works great so it's an ideal solution for backing up pokemon RTC games.
Drag and dropping is all thats needed, unlike needing to use the software like the EZFLASH 4 does, which i also have.
The high ROM limit (32MB) for things like the gameboy video pack roms if you're into that or want to back up those carts.
Can detect what kind of save file is necessary (eeprom, flash, sram) and even then you can adjust it.
Communication with gamecube games (e.g Pokemon Ruby, FireRed with Pokemon BOX or Colosseum)

The fact that theres some part of it sticking out. Not a big deal but i wonder if the X7 woukd use a regular size. The EZFLASH 4 has a regular size so it is feasible, but again.... not a big deal.
No gameshark support. Maybe in an OS update??

I'll have to go in depth in a video or something.

EverDrive X5

I thought I was going to wait until November for this, but it came to my door, the same day Mafia 3 came out.

Sucks how Pokemon Yellow. As the start up screen comes up. Pikachu sounds a little derpy and Crystal, the game kinda looks potato.

But all in all. I get to play tons of games.
Plus with save states, I can abuse the system with cloning :D
