inertial? noninertial?

Please comment:
Consider the I and the I' reference frame and the transformation equations which establish a relationship between say the space-time coordinates of the same event. If we have the direct ones and we can recover the inverse ones by interchaging the coresponding primed with unprimed then I and I' are inertial. If not then at least one of the involved frames is not inertial.
We register the second case when nonstandard synchronization is performed and now at least one (both) of them is (are) noninertial.
