I placed the r4i gold (forgetting to put the other side of the case in)
and it got stuck, managed to pull it out but bent the metal that holds the games
nothing fits, it turns on though
any ideas on recapping it and bending the metal back?

Ok some positive news, I got the bottom piece out of there, the metal is still a bit bent but you can play games now, you just need to push the game in harder
(Also I could dismantle it due to the 'triwing' screws)

EDIT: Put the supercard in and it 'kinda' bent the metal back due to its thicker CPU chip
thanks everyone!
