Flash2Advance : F2A USB

Flash2Advance is one of the older carts, so in consequence, the hardware is inferior to many of the newer carts and lacks many of the advanced featured. However, the Flash2Advance is one of the few carts that can perfectly run PogoShell, which is an incredible way to manage your GBA ROMs.

The Flash2Advance cart has many missing features when compared to a next generation cart, such as the GBA X-ROM and Extreme Flash Advance: you have to patch many games to make them save correctly (1Mb Flash, EEPROM V_1.24...), there is no real-time clock, there is no cheat function, and the cart's power consummation is above average. For the good news, the cart does features the same inner battery (what keeps your saves) as official Nintendo cartridges so that means that you won't ever need to recharge it, though the battery will die quicker than a rechargeable one. Still, don't expect your battery to die within the next 3 years or so, and in the meantime you won't have to worry about your game saves at all.

Despite the hardware, the Flash2Advace has got some really good software, like the feature filled flashing software called "Little Writer" ( only available with the parallel linker F2A, not the USB F2A ), or the Operating System style program called "Pogoshell". Pogoshell is basically a desktop for your GBA. It features icons, folders, backgrounds, and you can even customize your theme. However, the best part of Pogoshell is the ingenious save compression method, which lets you keep an incredible amount of gba rom game saves on your cart by compresing them. With this, you will never run out of RAM before you run out of ROM. The downside with Pogoshell is that you have to rewrite the entire cart if you want to simply add one ROM, and you will need to trim/patch ROMs manually. This requires a slight amount of patience, but if you are not in a rush, Pogoshell can seriously pay off.

Without Pogoshell, this cart's official software really falls apart. The software is sub par: it only lets you have 4 save files on your cart at a time, and it though it is stable, it is very plain. However, the software combined with Pogoshell makes a very powerful combination. With the software's flashing speed and Pogoshell's features, it's no question why so many peoples use the Flash2Advance.

GB-Bridge , an add-on which only works with old Visoly carts, works perfectly with the Flash2Advance. GB Bridge will let you play Gameboy Color ROMs on your flash cart. Though the GB emulator Goomba will let you play certain GBC games, you are restricted from more than 3/4 of them. While you do have to buy this accessory separately, it is well worth it for fans of the Gameboy and GB Color.

This is a fast and very reliable cart that works marvelously with Pogoshell. GB Bridge is also an added bonus. Just keep in mind that this cart lacks a bit of hardware features, especially when compared to others such as the EZ Flash Advance, XG2 Turbo or the GBA X-ROM. As Pogoshell becomes better compatible with other newer carts, the Flash2Advance is loosing most of its advantages..

Summed up:
+ Pogoshell
+ Little Writer for Parallel Linker version
+ No need to recharge save battery
+ GB-Bridge support for GB/GBC roms

- No RTC
- Save Game limitations
- No cheat function
- Official software is subpar
