    I never use sleep mode on my 3ds. I always turn it off, I prefer it this way since I do not use it every day.

    I hate having to hold the power button in and then afterwards hit another button to power it off. It's such a pain.

    1) If I had the r41 Gold cart, would the power off behavior be different? If so, how?
    2) I really do not want to flash, it just not something I want to do. But I am curious, with CFW does the power off behavior change? If so, how?

    1) An R4 behaves just like loading a DS game. So no.
    2) Installing https://github.com/Asellus/3DS_Quick_Shutdown makes a different shutdown possible: Start the app for power off.
    Edit: and the power off function in the Rosalina menu

    I see this code base is 3 years old. Will it still work with recent CFW's? Anyone use this that can testify that it works?

    Also, does this install just like any other homebrew once I have CFW? Do I have to compile this app and do extra stuff? It looks uncompiled.

    There is a .CIA file inside the zip-archive. https://github.com/Asellus/3DS_Quick_Shutdown/releases

    I did not do very extensive testing but it seems to work (test console O3DSXL) :
    • FBI installed this without problems
    • latest official firmware 11.10.0-43E
    • Luma3DS v10.0.1
    • tried it a couple of times→ success
    I guess the "code base" is three years old because there is simply nothing to do anymore. After all it does mostly only execute a shutdown command.
