    The really good thing about such a project would be easy hotswapping.

    Said that in another similar thread. It's doable but you will lose the gamecard slot. You have to replace the slot and daughterboard with a passive adapter. It's comparable with how it works on the Vita except there you don't need to replace the slot.

    This also needs software support like on the Vita.
