FAS1 Options

FAS1 is a Homebrew written by Smiths based off of tftpds (by Sten Larsson and Gustav Munkby). It's for users of older FlashAdvance Pro cartridges who wish to flash programs to their cartridges in Slot-2 from within the AKAIO menu. The menu for FAS1 Options will only function if you have a FlashAdvance Cartridge in Slot-2.

FAS1 Usage

While in Advanced Settings press the Y button for FAS1 options. Enabling "Use Flash Advance Features" will do the following:

  • Set .GBA/.BIN/.SAV files as visible in your file listing
  • Allow you to select a .GBA/.BIN file and flash it to the cartridge in Slot-2 (.BIN = PogoShell)
  • Select a .SAV file to flash to SRAM Bank 1 of the FlashAdvance Cartridge
  • Use the Key Combo L+B+A while highlighting "Slot2 Card" in the root file listing to back up SRAM Bank 1 (backs up to /SAVES/ folder as BANK1.SAV)

Note: The "Use Flash Advance Features" is always set to Disabled upon AKAIO startup.
