    It seems I remember hearing that soft reset had issues with some games a few FW updates ago. I haven't encountered any games that fail to boot when using soft reset myself.

    What games , if any, don't work with soft reset on the R4? I'm just curious.

    I remember hearing something like that, but it wasn’t that the games didn’t
    work if Soft-reset was on. Just that Soft-reset didn’t work on some games.
    But I myself have never ran into any games having problems with Soft-reset.

    Haven't had any problems with games failing to boot due to soft reset. But the ds browser fails to soft reset about 40% of the times I use it (from the version soft reset got introduced).
    That's the only problem i've had with the soft reset feature.

    It always works for me. Even with the hacked browser and trimmed roms.

    but it doesn't work on any homebrew as far as I know

    I had it mess up with lost in blue, would reset to the menu, but when re-selecting the game, there would just be white screens, using 1.6 firmware (one before the theme switching firmware)

    Yeah, I find it odd to think people use soft reset. Pressing all those buttons at once is just much more complex than giving the power switch a flick with you index finger.

    I'm inclined to agree, but I was just asking because I also have a slot2 SC and you can select the next page of a game listing with the R button, so sometimes I goof and hit it without realizing it on the R4.

    So....it doesn't matter if I leave it on or not. Good to know.

    i think softreset is more power friendly.. since it doesn't has to boot up the system again.. (even when it only take 2-3 seconds)..the processor is under more load,if you turn it off and on...

    Soft reset is awesome! I wouldn’t buy a card that didn’t have it. I don’t have much time
    to play with my DS & the less time I spend with the OS the better. I loved the SC’s fast
    OS & the R4 is doing everything right as far as speed & ease of use. God I hated the slow
    clunky M3 OS.
