ElCheapoSD v2.2 Ready to ship


User Guide here:

Previous issues with V03 GBC motherboards, and some GBA consoles have been fixed in this new hardware version. Previous carts can be returned for an upgrade/replacement where necessary at no cost, other than covering shipping. I'll try get a distributor in the US to handle US Customers' upgrades.

Taking pre-orders on the next batch - approx 1 week lead time. No stickers currently available. I'm working on getting them made.

Firmware is currently at 2.015. A video of the current firmware and cart operation will be out in the coming days.

Tested working - mbc1, mbc2, mbc3, mbc5 ROMs. No reported problems playing any original GB or GBC game. LSDJ FULLY COMPATIBLE

Save states on most games. Not all are supported, estimate about 90% are supported. Some of the few unsupported can be very easily modified to enable SS. Some cannot, Shantae is one such ROM that can't (the rom works fine in its standard form though). Please report any games that are buggy with states and I'll work on a fix, if they can be fixed.

Cheat engine not yet completed but verified with current hardware. 

Multiple save states not yet completed but verified with current hardware.

Cart hardware:

No RTC in this hardware version.

8mbytes total, 4mbytes available for ROM

128k total SRAM, 128k available to ROM

3.3v to 5v level translators

No battery required.

SD not included. Tested with cards 1gb to 32gb SD+SDHC

Tested working on GBA, SP, GBC, DMG, Pocket. Save states tested on GBA, GBC, SP, DMG, pocket.

Like the V1, there will be regular updates addressing all reported issues. No sense paying $130+postage for the competition!
