As subject anyone know if it's possible to reflash a bootleg cartridge to be a different game? Guilty Gear / Knights Valour bootlegs can still be picked up pretty cheaply from aliexpress but not Dolphin Blue, Mega Slug 6 etc. I'm wondering if it's just a case of reflashing some tsop flash memory or if there's more to it than that?

AW boots is (almost) full replicas, flash(?) ROMs contains same as genuine games encrypted data, and protection CPLDs uses game-specific keys, so you cant simply reflash one to another using lets say dumps from MAME set.

however, in theory, it migh be possible, if re-encrypt and "fix" target game data.
