Hi friends,
openMSX resets the machine right after inserting a rom in slot!
So how can I insert a rom image while not openMSX resetting the running machine?!
I'm talking about openMSX for android devices.

That is only possible with the console by entering the cart command. When using the OSD menu as you did, the MSX is reset for convenience, as in almost all cases you simply want to start the just inserted ROM.

Thanks dear Manuel but I'm not that well with console commands! So may I ask for some examples? Let's say I want to put Konami's Knightmare or Penguin Adventure, what should I type in the console window?!

You can see all comands here

cart / cart

Insert a ROM cartridge in a running MSX. The cart command inserts the cartridge in the first available slot. The carta, cartb etc. commands insert it in the specified slot. The cartridges can be removed again with the eject subcommand.

ROM cartridges are a special class of extensions. For extensions that are not ROM cartridges, see the commands ext, list_extensions and remove_extension.

Usage:

cart KMARE.ROM Insert ROM cartridge in first free slot
cart insert KMARE.ROM Insert ROM cartridge in first free slot
carta USAS.ROM -ips USAS.IPS Insert ROM cartridge in slot A, with IPS patch applied to the ROM contents
cartb NEMESIS.ROM -romtype Konami Insert ROM cartridge in slot B, and explicitly specify the mapper type (is normally auto detected)
carta eject Eject the currently inserted cartridge from slot A
