    No and its not false, it works. Been playing all week, but then I remembered "Wait, werent R4 supposed to be white?"
    And they were, from most pictures Ive seen from the R4.
    Oh well, it doesn't match with my White DS, to bad.

    P.S Just for the heads up, I bought my R4 in Hong Kong.

    modern R4s are black.

    it's a slot-1 module anyway, and they need to look like game carts (which are that color), not like parts of the DS.

    See that hole in your wall?
    The R4 I bought last spring was white and came with an extra black shell. Then when I ordered one for my friend a few months ago, it came only in black and I had to add the white shell as an extra for $5 more. (Bought both from Gamersection.ca)
    So if you want the white case, you'll have to find some place that sells the case by itself.

    I see. So the shell is replacable? Nice.

    Just un-screw the...screw then Remove the back on it then replace with the white. Flip it over replace the front with a white. Flip it over screw the screw back on.

    There is no tut for it since it is so simple a monkey can do it.

    There are (well i'm 99.99% sure) no moving/dangling parts on the R4DS.

    Just make sure you don't scratch anything on the PCB. Shouldn't be too much of a problem though
