- In EmulationStation settings > Other settings > uncheck 'save metadata on exit'
- Copy the 2 attached files to /home/pi/RetroPie/retropiemenu/
- Chmod them to 0755
- Edit /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/gamelists/retropie/gamelist.xml and add before '</gameList>':
<game><path>./</path><name>.Airplane Mode Enable</name></game>
<game><path>./</path><name>.Airplane Mode Disable</name></game>

- Then restart EmulationStation and check if the new items are present.
- In EmulationStation settings > Other settings > check 'save metadata on exit' back
- Restart EmulationStation a last time.

Note: If you update Retropie you may need to remake this.

Cutting the power from USB device is not a good idea, to do it the "proper" way, you need to detach the device (at software level) problem being to reattach it after.
This is why I have setup these scripts on my system, basically the device still drain power, but far less.

For the freezes problems, I have notice this too, I think it come from a combination of glitch in the linux kernel and from the USB host into the CPU itself. It is far more difficult to replicate this behavior using a USB hub.

For the 3DS analog sticks, looking at them I think the feeling will be similar to PSP 1000 sticks. Did you tested it already?

Thanks a lot! I’ll get into that in a bit. 

I ordered the 3DS sticks in one order and then the caps in another to save money. So now I only have the sticks with no caps as I wait for the mail. But they seem to be much better than PSP 1000/2000 sticks. They feel smoother, firmer, and I think they have more travel. They definitely feel like a better stick. I like that the PSP analog stick gets the job done, but I’m not a fan of the feel of it. I have high hopes for these 3DS sticks, but it’s hard to tell. I think I won’t be able to know for sure how good they feel until they are in place and I’m in a game Smile . Another thing is I still have to come up with a new place for L3/R3. Somewhere comfortable and decent looking. Maybe on the back. Ahhh I never know anything until I get started hahahaha.
