Hello, fellow gamer's the guys over at Shop01Media have hooked us up with EZ-Flash Omega to have a look at and review. The Ultimate GBA/NDS Flash Cart which has amazing features, support of a 128gb Micro SD Card which is overkill but awesome just all the same and Instant Game Save feature.
EZ-Flash Omega Feature
The biggest new, very cool feature is instant saving games. The direct save is native builtin, hardware emulated, works with clean mode, no need to patch or hotkey save. it works without battery completely
So the Ez-Flash Omega is an easy flash cart to use with many options and features, I have my card reader and a 32gb Micro SD Card, First I went over to Ez-Flash Website and downloaded any updates and followed their easy manual on how to update and the controls of Ez-Flash. After that, I loaded some of my games onto the sd card and I am very impressed this makes things so much easier than carrying a bunch of cartridges around and boot times are super fast.
The instant save feature is amazing and works as they directed which is after you save wait a few seconds before shutting off so it gives time for it to write to the sd card. They also have a download for cheats. I have not tried this personally as I really never use it but might be a great feature for others. My 32gb Micro SD is a bit of an overkill but I always like to have that extra room. Again the Ez-Flash Omega is really easy to use even for a beginner, I was up and running in less than 5 minutes. That's without even knowing anything about how to use a flash cart. Now I have an amazing flash cart with all my games on one card allowing me to free up some space in my travel bag when I go camping or those long drives perfect investment. Now I just need to get a Back Lit Mod for my GBA to make it the ultimate little portable gaming machine.
Let's take a closer look at the features:
GBA game copy and play, no client needed
Fast patch engine, instat game load speed, additional manual patch engine to support modified rom
Hardware based direct save to SD card
Real time clock
256Mb PSRAM suppot all game instant load
512Mb Norflash, keep your favorite games

Compatible with 99% of GBA and NDS games.
Can be used on NDS and NDS Lite consoles with NDS games if a pass me device is used (not the NDS flash cart but it works).
If you guy's are looking for a great place to go to get your gaming products, check out Shop01Media, they're very helpful and ship to a whole bunch of places around the world. The Shop01Media website has a large selection for most consoles (retro and new). Shipping is pretty fast from them and does not take to long. I have personally bought quite a few products from them and have always been happy. Finally, they also have Xecuter SX Pro and Xecuter SX OS for the Nintendo Switch.
This is also known as the RGX as it was first only used to pull the key for slims only good for slims also for the RGH But with Xecuter releasing a couple tweaked files its like having a ck3 pro but better.
Xbox 360s I installed them too
- Trinity (DGX)
- Corona (CR4)
The items arrived well packaged and they shipped perfectly with no damage. Shop01media ships worldwide which is nice for lots of people trying to find a good place to get real xecuter chips or other modding products. They have a variety of products from Nintendo GC to PS4 and of course Xbox to Xbox One products Big list of items nice layout has prices in DKK, EUR, NOK, PLN, GBP, SEK, USD so you can look at without having to guess. But now onto the products I received.
So i installed the DGX (RGX) in a trinity that was being very stubborn and couldn't get it to glitch for the life of me no matter what i set it to and how good my soldering was this would just not boot. Well with this installed i was able to out of 10 glitches it would glitch within 1-2 glitches about 5-10 secs this would have my console booting i am very well surprised that this chip was able to make that much of a difference and is worth every penny to me. There is several timing files for the trinity and corona that are used with different resistors you find the right set and you are golden and that tutorial they state what to try first i got lucky and did the first set and worked perfect so i did not need to test further as 5-15 sec boots are amazing to me and i am just super stoked that this chip allowed me to do this to my trinity as it was sitting in storage for the longest time, tried multiple chips and this one worked perfect out of them all. If you ever had installed any previous Xecuter glitch chip this one is just as easy as the others.
Now with the CR4 on my corona i am not big fan of the Corona boards as well there is so many versions and before you go and try buying stuff you think you need, first thing you should do is take the xbox apart and figure out what version you have and this will help and save money in the long run. I by far am a big Xecuter fan as they make top notch products that hold many years to come and it proves that with my original Xbox X3 and X2 Modchips still working today. I do not knock others I will be testing other brands here in the next few months to also give my honest feedback and just like Xecuter, even though I like their products if I find something that I don't like i speak my mind. This chip works just as great and i actually tested this out in my corona and also a standard phat 360 (little bit slower on the phats but not by much on boot times this was with no tweaking so if I was to tweak it some I could get amazing boot speeds but i just wanted to test it really fast) my corona boots in about 15 seconds, this I am happy with and install was easy with the guidance of the tutorials on Jrunner itself. This one is a good overall for both the phat and slim Xbox 360's and boots really fast (5 to 15 secs) There is so much tweaking options on the CR4 in time i will see if i can slim that time down but myself i don't like to spend hours on something that boots 2-5 secs when 5-15 seconds is not that long lol. But this option is there for those that want to really fine tweak there console.
If you have a trinity that is really struggling with boot times and/or no booting the DGX(RGX) is going to be the cure for you and I would get them while you can before they get sold out. I am going to be buying a few myself here soon just because of how many hours i spent on trying to get this one i have now to boot in a decent amount of time or to boot at all this chip was able to fix both issues and give me great boot speeds and also if you having issues for some reason Use a 50cm - 70cm to post_out and this should fix the issue.
CR4 overall a great all around chip for both phat and slim Xbox 360s with many tweaking options all in one chip itself in my book is also a great purchase and time saving chip as i just dumped my nands and installed xex and did the custom dash and set it to what they said in jrunner for my type of board and like i said it boots within 5 to 15 secs and i am happy with this.
I have also ordered from Shop01media and i am based in the usa and they will anwser any questions you have before hand and help guide you to the best choice and again have a great selection in many different consoles and world wide shipping. So if you need anything Xbox related or PlayStation or even Nintendo check them out amazing selection.

The guys over at gcw-zero have graciously shipped us out their GCW-Zero: Open Source Gaming Handheld to review for you all on HQ.
A huge thanks are in order to the guy's over at www.gcw-zero.com for shipping this unit out to us! Before we go any further you should understand that this unit is still in early stages, this meaning that there is not alot that it can do at the moment.
What's a GCW-Zero I hear you say? The GCW-Zero is a Linux flavored handheld powerful enough to run classic PC games, emulate the game consoles we grew up with and run homebrew games seamlessly at high frame rates.
The GCW can be comparable to a phat PSP 1001 models in a way, back in the day there were tons and tons of firmware exploits released that allowed you to run homebrew and emulators. With the GCW Zero you can do just that without having to have to worry about a update blocking your emulators. Below we see the unit on.
The console runs on Linux software, not android. So far the only way to get Apps is through FTPing OPK files which is basically binary c/c++ programming from my understanding, or loading them through a Micro SD card slot. Personally the console Emulates just fine for me. I tested a NES emulator and had no issues, as mentioned there is not alot it can do at the moment as it is still in early beta stages. Devs are working really hard on pushing out software. The guy's over at GCW Zero did mention that there would be a App store pushed eventually.
In all honesty do not expect this device to run high end games, as the specs are a bit low, coincidentally the GCW zero ships with a respectable 32GB of internal memory it can be expandable to 64GB. Since this device is to mainly run retro gaming the screen resolution is 320 x 240 with a 3:4 ratio which is ideal for retro gaming as stated on their website.
Major Nelson confirmed today that the next generation Xbox One console, scheduled for release this November, will allow independent game developers to self-publish their own Indie games.
Here's what Microsoft Mac Whitten had to say:
"Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox LIVE."
Marc also clarified to IGN just recently that not all of these features will be available at launch (including the ability to use any console as a dev kit), but the goal is to make the process have "as low of a barrier to entry as possible" for independent developers.
Some Russian hacker, unilaterally deciding that PC gamers have the inalienable right to play the 2011 Xbox 360 game The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile (pictured), just up and ported the thing, saying "This is not piracy, this is restoration of justice."
According to a translation of the GameDev.ru forums, the hacker, named Barabus, said "the authors are not very nice to publish the game exclusively for the Xbox 360, making it impossible for PC gamers to play in such a great game."
Then, "Given that developers ignore the PC platform, about any loss of profit for them is not out of the question. After all, if they wanted to earn money, then the game would be issued on all available platforms."
