    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?

    only problem is I don't know what area opens up to that spot
    also destroyed the case of the r4i (i think the bottom bit is still in)

    you can buy new cases off youtube then just cut a MicroSD card slot hole in it

    I might buy a new red 3ds and system transfer it, (also under the battery case there are very tiny screws that nothing fits in :C)

    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!
