    I know how you feel.
    I can't exactly understand you, either.

    Oh, and AFAIK, you can only change the 1st gen Chinese R4's to the English version.
    If I'm wrong on that, I'm sure there'll be someone who says otherwise.

    Actually, you're suppose to solder in the contact, not remove it. Read it correctly:)

    Yes, to go from english to chinese. In your case, you want to got from Chinese to English, so you have to bridge that jumper and then install the english firmware.

    instead of soldering you can use a pencil.

    yes i mean pencil like to draw with, i tested it and it was confirmed to work seems conductive enough for R4/M3 jumper points. that is if your afraid of soldering and need a alternative.

    mine was done with a lead pencil but most should work, not sure on softness since it was the default lead it came with

    I tried the pencil method and couldn't get it to work.
