So apparently you have to open the cart to access the switch. Sure, most people probably would not need to switch back and forth but it just seems like poor design. I am going to assume that the decision was made so they could keep using the old cases as is instead of making a new one to accommodate an external switch a la Ace3DS X's.

To change the mode we need to dismantle the R4 ??? :(
Yes, but it's easy to do with just a fingernail. The shells tend to pop off much easier than regular gamecarts.
Another one?

Placing the switch on the inside is a rather bad idea. Someone could end up wrecking the flashcart (chances are unlikely, but you know how noobs are).
It is inconvenient, but most users won't need to use the ntrboot feature more than once.
I actually plan on buying this cart. Mostly because need a new R4i Gold and I might as well have this one instead.
I do too if the price isn't $5 more than the original.

Srr Im not english, I dismantle the r4 but after to put the r4 in the cartbridge, it's easy ?
Idk. But I suppose that it's not very hard if the card is similar to other flashcards (tho you must make sure that the pcb is in the right position when putitng it back together).

if one of these companies wants to stand out, they need to make it work like this

SD Card inserted = DS Mode
no SD Card = NTRBoot Mode
I think that ace3ds X's solution with the switch on the outside is pretty good.

We might see many flashcart (other than Ace3dsX) like that in the futur, which I don't get why is everyone copying everyone. Also it's kinda ugly.
