I just received my EZ-Flash IV from realhotstuff.com yesterday. Without thinking, I stuck in a micro sd, put it in my GBA SP and turned it on. After the initial "GAMEBOY" screen it went to a star wars background with a file menu that said "hold L button". Holding L did nothing and I shut off the gameboy. I then proceeded to follow every proper step from formatting the card to pasting the .bin file in the sd card's root. Now when I power up my gameboy it goes to the initial "GAMEBOY" screen, but rather than "Nintendo" popping up with that joyful ding it has random pixels similar to how it looks when you insert a dirty game.
I've tried it in two SPs and a Micro with the same screen.
Is it possible that I ruined the EZ-Flash cartridge?

nevermind. it has worked 3 times within about 30 attempts. i was able to update the kernel, then it wouldn't work. i added a second piece of paper and cleaned the contacts. the contacts are pressed so tightly it is difficult to get the cart in. the other 2 times that it decided to get past the "GAMEBOY" screen it froze on a black screen and a white screen.
i'm pretty sure i'll try to return the cartridge unless someone who has had the same problem can give me a definite solution.
