This thread should be up to date so feel free to link to it.
In an attempt clean the the massive group of stickies I unstickied a bunch of them and linked them here. If this proves unpopular say so (there is a bugmenot account) and the original arrangement will return. Remember to read the wiki ( wiki )and also have a look at the GBAtemp wiki ( http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/3_in_1_Exp ... EZ-Flash_V).
EZ5i 3.0 kernel OB8 This is only for EZ5i users, EZ5, EZ5 nye and EZ5 plus users have the 2.0 line. Based on the well liked 2.0 line this line brings big changes to the EZ5i in terms of DLDI/write speed (as of OB7 ARGV support for homebrews is in as well), ROM running and a few choice features. viewtopic.php?f=16&t=17718
Note- as of 3.0 OB6 kernel the internal firmware v103 or newer is now the required firmware (check with the changelogs).
EZ5 2.0 kernel R20 As game fixes are not being ported back to older kernel lines as of late 2009 we are suggesting everyone use the 2.0 kernels unless you have a reason (the odd bit of homebrew and support for odd cheats mainly). viewtopic.php?f=16&t=17107&start=0
EZ5i firmware / internal firmware / core updates The EZ5i features the ability to update the core of the card, which has since brought fixes for stability, DSi firmwares that block flash cards, 3ds firmwares that block flash cards and as of v101 it brings changes to the way roms work, improvements to cart speed and more. This is the thread used to discuss the updates, the first post contains links to the downloads. viewtopic.php?f=16&t=13991
EZ5i unbricker Occasionally the EZ5i might fail to update properly and will essentially be bricked (typically this happened to people doing updates from earlier versions to v11 and beyond and from v11 and beyond to v101 and some later updates in the v1?? line but if yours broke during a firmware update give this a go). Instructions in the topic but it requires a working DS slot flash cart and a DS or DS lite (DSi and 3ds do not support hotswapping DS carts). viewtopic.php?p=74382#p74382
3 in 1 tools The EZ5 loader supports the 3 in 1 but third party tools have some interesting features (not to mention the RC line is still a bit patchy for some) There are 3 main tools Rudolphs GBA ExpLoader. Formerly 3in1 ExpPack tool. Presently the only third party support for the 3 in 1 plus. viewtopic.php?f=16&t=5006 Homepage http://kotei.blog.so-net.ne.jp/
EZ5 general technical data thread This thread has much of the low level information in a more organised format than it is here. viewtopic.php?f=16&t=15100
Older software EZ5 2.0 line Now in "release candidate" form the 2.0 line is a rewrite of the entire kernel for speed. General consensus is that they work and do so very well but some may find them still a bit rough and ready (some of the features may not be present or not work correctly).
Also available is the savelist using loader, they are somewhat useful for the newer games that feature protection against flashcarts as clean mode is about as close to an emulator/"real hardware" as you can get. Only original and nye/v2 users can use this (if your EZ5 supports SDHC you can not use it). Again EZ5i/EZVi users will need at least 1.90 open beta 6 for now and running older kernels may brick the device. Here is 1.70 (the last version to use it). http://www.ezflash.cn/zip/ez5kernel080202.zip
resetsp.bin Note there has not been an update to this since early April 2009, the newer 1.9x kernels and the 2.0 more or less did away with it.
Any new resetsp.bin should be among the first page of threads or in the beta updates (note that the format was changed so older users (those with the savelist) will not be able to use it). resetsp.bin is a very important part of the EZ5 in that is has reset patches* and fixes for roms. *1.90 open beta 10 added a so called mode2 soft reset that does not need a resetsp.bin to work although compatibility may be lower.
Savelist. The newest kernels have rendered it not of much use but there are some who still use the older kernels: XML2ezsave (list creation tool and save list discussion topic) viewtopic.php?f=16&t=12923
GBA xcode (used by the entire EZFlash range to sort GBA functions like cheats and reset). Can be used with the 3 in 1 tools or place in the /moonshl directory for the 1.8x beta (and beyond) kernels. viewtopic.php?f=16&t=13031
