Wrapping up Gen3 updates, and something new! Posted on 30 Mar 19:58 , 15 comments
As of today, Software and Firmware are at v3.15. This release now supports ALL GBA save types, SRAM, FLASH, FRAM and EEPROM in all available sizes. It supports the dumping of all* GBA ROM's both bootleg and commercial.
GB/C support has been complete for some time now and I'm pretty happy with the flash cart support. I still want to add support for nanoloop carts though getting hold of one is proving problematic.
There are still one or two features I will add to Joey's software like better GBA cart size detection and a foolproof way to stop the dumping of Flash Saves on a SRAM cart (Don't do it!) The last update for Joey will stop at v3.16 and should be out in the next week or two. Of course, if you find bugs, a new flash cart or compatibility issues, contact me and I'll do a snappy update.
*one particular type of bootleg GBA cart actually contains copy protection! This is truly amazing and I'll be documenting the reversal of copy protection in the coming weeks.
NEW NEW NEW! I'll be releasing a NES cart dumper in the coming weeks. It will be in the same style as the Gen3 Joey both physically and the GUI. Cart Mapper auto-detection will be one of its features alongside auto iNES header generation, super fast dumping, save dumping and writing and even flashing of compatible carts. Like the Gen3 Joey, compatibility will start off quite limited but rapidly develop until all mappers are supported!
Check back for updates!
