Is the o3ds non-xl supposed to have a spring mechanism in the sd card slot

    I decided to do something nice for my bro and install him a9lh (he's still on rxtools because i'm lazy) but I can't take the sd card out and pressing the sd card does nothing

    yes its spring loaded, the mechanism is probably broken, you could probably just yank it out, or use ftbrony/microSD management app is all else fails

    luckily tho for the o3ds non-xl the SD card adapter is seperate from the motherboard, so you could always replace that to actually fix the issue if you felt like rather than trying to work around it

    I can still manage to pull it out with a bit of effort

    yeah thats what i meant by "yank it out" i.e by force, but a replacement slot is pretty cheap, like $5 last time i checked iirc
