The AGB Aging Cartridge was used within the factory checking process as well as within Nintendo authorized repair centers, and were designed to ensure correct operation of all units coming in for repair. This cartridge is the earliest known revision, and it features some differences when compared to later versions which include: Different Zelda graphics being shown throughout, booting with L+R held bringing you straight to the Select Target menu, and the text along the bottom right only indicating that this cartridge is for AGB.
