Okay, please tell me how to emulate Sega 315-6347A ASIC, that used on Mario Kart GP/2 flash carts ?

I dont want flame or something, but I think you are wrong, please read this 3 years old blog - there was already confirmed - MB contain iso's.
BUT yes, I agree - these 'dumps' may be already patched by someone for netboot.
and btw AFAIK at least half of Naomi cart 'dumps' was made using D.Knute's trojan in the same way (i.e. cart was readed to RAM then sended to PC), so it can't be called 'proper dumps' too

I don't won't say anything, read patch list by yourself here
