Very cool. Anything different other than the cosmetics?
Hmmm the pins aren't seperated on this new shell. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
Shouldn't matter unless you have done something to seriously damage your DS. The pins in a DS are fairly rigid.
Still uses the same ATF01 IC, looks like just updates to the shell along with a loader mechanism for the Micro SD.
To the posted above, it might fix a issue which some people complain about when there R4 doesn't read when inserted, most usually fixed it by putting paper between the case and PCB. I for one haven't had this issue.
Holy shit. That's fugly >_> I liked the spring and the little curve in the case..
Is it possible to do the hardware english/chinese switch with it?
Doesn't look like it. You can probably still do the software/kernel conversion thing
LOL, it is kind of funny when there are many people find the spring troublesome, there are people who like it. I myself have my MicroSD card springed out once accidentally, and I had to look really hard to find it. But the good thing is, I am more careful when inserting the MicroSD after that incident. Now, now, if only they launch this new shell with a new... better firmware.
Why not just make a better spring, rather than just taking it out? That really sucks this new isn't going to be spring loaded.
glad I got one of the early R4's with spring-loaded microsd slot. any friends who ask me which cart to get now will be recommended the cyclods.
I much rather have a broken spring on my R4 than on my DS (the one that holds the cart). IMO, it's a bad move to make it hold the microSD card on its side, like the EZ Flash V.
On slot-2 carts, it wasn't much of a problem, because they were stuck with pressure onto the DS, but taking a slot-1 cart in and out everytime you want to somehow change the contents of the microSD card...
I guess I'll report back here when I receive the "new-shelled" R4.
I'm getting it, probably by Monday.
() I'm pretty charitable, so I'm giving my old R4 to a family member.
