GBA: EZ-Flash IV Kernel 2.02 & 2.03 released

Hay everybody, The EZ-FLASH IV team has released two new kernel updates that offer some awesome new improvements. For anyone that doesn’t know, the EZ-FLASH IV is a GBA Flash cart that has many features you can read our full review here and now they have given us a few more.

EZ-FLASH IV Kernel 2.02

We added GLOBAL SOFTRESET AND SLEEP(GSS) patch and customized hotkey configuration file.

default softreset key combination is “L + UP + B”, default sleep key combination is “L + R + START”, default wake up key combination is “START + SELECT”.

Some games can not apply the GSS patch properly, you can use “L+B” to launch them without GSS patch.

If you want to set your own hotkey combination, there is a file named “KEYSET.CFG” in the EZ4Kernel 2.02 package. please check it out. This file must placed in the root of SD card.

We also made a quick tutorial at here
