GBxCart RW - An device suitable for GB, GBC and GBA carts so you can backup your game ROMs, backup or restore save games to your PC and write ROMs to supported Flash carts (e.g our GB 1MB 128KB SRAM Flash Cart).
11 July 2020 - 5 new PCB colours to choose from - White, Red, Yellow, Blue and Black!
If you only need GB/GBC cart support, check out the GBxCart Mini RW option for a lower cost. New "Pro" version (blue PCB) allows you to use a GBA repo cart shell (BYO) to encase GBxCart into, a bit of trimming/filing is required for the USB connector. There is no difference in functionality between the regular v1.3 and v1.3 Pro.
Over 2000 units sold! At least a few hundred hours have been spent on firmware and software updates. Designed and assembled in Australia.
We have a simple GUI available for Windows to perform most of the functions. Flashing is done via the dedicated flasher program. Installation is very simple, just install the CH340G driver supplied, the .NET framework and you're ready to go. You won't find an easier to use cart reader than this, not to mention this is the lowest cost cart reader/flasher out there!
Works with Windows XP or higher and Linux/Mac (console version). On Linux/Mac the speeds are much slower.
You'll just need a Micro-USB or USB-C cable depending on the connector type you choose. The USB-C connector only has the USB 2.0 lines attached.
Comes assembled, no soldering required. Each unit is assembled in house and is tested with a Gameboy and Gameboy Advance game (reading ROM, saving RAM and writing RAM).

The usual delivery time is 3–5 weeks for the AusPost Tracked or usually a week for DHL.
Please note: If the game you are looking to flash saves to an EEPROM, then it won't work on any of these carts unless you patch it to use SRAM. If the cart you have doesn't have a spot for a battery, then you will need to patch that game to save back to the flash. (Check what save type your game is here.)
