    If you aren't comfortable using a soldering iron you probably shouldn't try that little mod; the pads you have to solder together are very small.

    Why not just keep using the Chinese version? The filenames are still in english, right? The R4 doesn't have options menus, so I wouldn't think it would be a problem.

    you can always wack a wee bit of tinfoil or other suck material over the contacts temporarily to see if it works, before you plunge in with solder
