    Is it possible/has anyone taken apart the R4i Gold(r4ids.cn) and replaced it with another shell? I'm asking because I just got my own copy and its working on 4.5.0-10 no problems however the case is a bit thicker than an actual cart. So the problem is to remove it you have to apply more force to pop it up.

    I'm worried it'll eventually mess up my 3ds xl's slot.

    Just curious, but are the DS and 3DS game carts easy to pry apart, without breaking any tabs off? I've never seen anyone do it in videos, so I've been too scared to try it...

    Official game carts, or flash carts? Some flash carts use a single screw and fall apart easily afterwords or use simply clips, but others are harder, for example my AK2i's got a broken clip now. ^^;

    As for official game carts, never tried to dissect those... though somebody here did dissect their HG/SS cart in order to do a little soldering to get past the save/IR issue (before the hardware save dumpers got updated), don't remember the thread's name to find it though.
