    When in the first menus of the r4, you can hit the L Button or use touch screen to change the brightness. on the right side of the touch screen, there is a button that says "R" that turns either red or green if you touch it or hit your DS's r button. what does it do?

    It toggles IGR (in-game reset) on and off, that enables you to immediately return to the R4 game menu without turning your DS off during gameplay by pressing A+B+X+Y+L+R simultaneously.

    Be careful using this in some games. One time when I was fooling around in Tony Hawk and pressing random buttons... the game resetted to the main-menu.

    If it's green it means Soft Reset is enabled.

    turns on and off the soft reset, like, when your in a game, you press A+B+Y+X+R+L and it goes back to the start menu or the games menu

    The only two games that doesnt work whit the soft reset, are Sim City DS and the Japanese Zelda game, the soft reset function was disabled for this two games to work properly on the R4.

    Like, here?

    Sometimes it doesn't reset Japenese games, but if you're using the English firmware, it usually resets English games
