What's AD Adapter (White version)? :


AD Adapter was developed originally to boot GBA commercial cartridges on SNES console.
It seems the developer was the third party in Chinese or somewhere ;)
The first black version appeared in 2013, and later white version seemed to appear in middle 2014.
Of course this white version also allows you to boot GBA physical carts, however,
it has special white cartridge, which allows us to insert micro SD cards.
Recent years many homebrew/ free games were created.
We can copy those free files on the micro SD card and load the game easily.
Thus we don't have to buy each expensive "Everdrive" like things for each consoles!
I'll explain details here...

Determined "Booting Difficulty" as below:
