What's AD Adapter (White version)? :
Adapter (a.k.a. "Super Retro Advance") was developed
originally to boot GBA commercial
cartridges on SNES console. It seems the developer was the third party of China 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 us to boot GBA physical carts, however,
it has special white cartridge that allows us to insert a micro SD card.
Recent years many homebrew / free games have been created.
We can copy those free files to the micro SD card and load the game easily.
Thus we don't have to buy expensive things like "Everdrive" for each consoles!
I'll explain details here...
