Gameboy 4MB 32KB FRAM Mini Flash Cart (fits in a GBA cartridge for GBA/GBA SP)

$35.00

This is a unique Gameboy flash cart which fits inside a GBA repo cartridge so you can play on the GBA and GBA SP without the cartridge sticking out like it does for a regular Gameboy cartridge. Because of that, this cart will only work in the GBA, GBA SP and the Game Boy Player. The GBA repo cart will need to trigger GB mode – we did this with a bit of hot glue on the bottom left side.

Will be loaded with LSDJ Stable 9.2.L, pre-modified with the hot glue method. Need to flash a game on this cart? Make sure to grab our GBxCart Flasher.

Comes in a reproduction clear cart shell. Looking for other colour cart shells? Check our GBA cart shell listing.

This re-programmable Flash Cartridge is MBC5 which allows you to play most of the later released Gameboy/Gameboy Colour games including some of the Pokemon games (no RTC support), Zelda DX, LSDJ (only 1 song), etc and allows you to re-flash it with any flasher like GBxCart RW that supports the MBM29F033C chip via the audio pin method. Designed and made in Australia.

Because the audio pin method is used this means that any rom that tries to erase/write to the flash chip won’t work, for example, LittleFM won’t work.

Works with GB Studio v1.1.0+ with saving if you wish to develop your own game. Check this list of Gameboy games to see the ROM/RAM size and MBC type your game will have, you would be looking for MBC5 games. Most MBC3 games should also work and some MBC1 games should work too.

Special features (requires quick soldering):
– Allows for MBC1 ROM banking – requests for bank 0 gives bank 1, useful for games like the original Zelda – Link’s Awakening.
– Allows for 8KB RAM locking useful for MBC1 games like Donkey Kong Country 3.

This cart only fits properly in the GBA, GBA SP and the Game Boy Player. If you can fit it on a DMG, MGB or GBC then it will work too. Games that require more than 4MB of ROM won’t work.

Each unit is assembled in house and is tested on a Gameboy Advance.
