Don’t plug in the USB cable if the device in a Gameboy
Normal USB operation method (as of 9 August 2020)
When plugged into your PC, the LED on the board will light up which means it ready to connect. When inserted into a Gameboy, the LED will light up but then turn off after half a second.
Old USB operation method (before 9 August 2020)
The LED on the board will blink when the device is plugged into a USB port if a USB signal is detected within 3 seconds. This means if you plug it in before the CH340 driver is installed correctly or before the operating system has booted, the LED won’t blink and thus you won’t be able to communicate with the cart. This is to reduce power consumption of the cart when in use in a Gameboy.
The PCB finish is ENIG, Gold fingers (on the edge connector) with a 45 degree bevel to give the maximum life for insertion/removal of the cartridge.
When you place an order, if you would like the flash cart to be programmed with a ROM, you need to supply it to us via email (you can reply to your order notification). It will be tested for 20-30 seconds on a Gameboy Advance to ensure it works, if it doesn’t work, we’ll contact you. If you don’t specify a ROM, it will be loaded with LSDJ Stable 8.5.1.
