Hi all people, I'm Ian and I'll explain you how to fix the header to play hacks like Shiny Gold and Reign of Legends.

You need to download GBA Header Tool, GBATA and a rom with good header (can be a no-pokemon rom or a pokemon rom but always than has a good header)

Now you'll have these two tools, the good rom and the hack than don't works.

First open the the GBA HT and select the directory of the bad rom. Go to copy, in the tool and select the directory of the good rom. Press Copy.
Now close the program and open the GBATA, select the directory of the bad rom and then go to SRAM patcher in the tool and select the directory and the name of the new good rom. Press Ptach and you'll have the new rom than works

Note: Your FlashCart will be compatible with SRAM format.

Thanks to:
Zel and Destinedjagold, because their hacks helped me to make this tutorial.
And you for read my post.

Thx this works
You should also mention that it works with any working game
and it doesnt hav to be the same game the hack is of
ie: you can use the header of pokemon ruby to get shiny gold to work
