Hot Swapping cartridges on 3DS XL. Thoughts? (game froze)

    I was wondering what your guys' opinions are on this. I'm wondering if anyone has ever had any issues.

    I hot swap a lot, but I always make sure the cartridge is not running before I change cartridges.

    99% of the time I have never had any problems, however the other day it took a while for my system to recognize that I had switched from Y to Alpha Sapphire. (pretty sure the software was off when I switched.)

    Then it finally registered that AS was in the system and I opened the software. I opened up the save file and the game froze right as soon as I entered the world screen but the music was still playing.

    I'm wondering if this was from hot swapping.

    Also I've dropped my 3DS xl on a hardwood floor a couple times in the past so maybe it was a glitch from that?

    I just want to take good care of my 3DS, I don't want to have to replace it since it has all of my pokebank info on it and switching that over to a new system sounds like a pain (not to mention expensive).

    Anyone else had any game freezes on 3DS XL systems or any of the new ones?
