it's just never used:

Can someone post an .ips patch that uses the built in code for Emerald, and possibly port it to R/S? The reason I ask is the batteries finally died in my copies of R/S/E so I wanted to start using my EZ Flash 3in1 and EZ Flash IV which both lack a RTC (gbata patched).

Edit: Oh wait, would that just be 61 05 00 08 at 0x478 for Emerald?
Edit 2: Nope white screen
