    Hacks.ini Wont Work

    Ive been at this for 2 hours, trying countless hacks.ini files.

    Ive tried them isolated on the sd card, and also with the preloader install files and such on the sd card aswell(however im not sure which way its supposed to go)

    Basically preloader boots, i try to go to systemmenu hacks, and i get the error" Could not find hacks.ini on fat or nand"

    Im on a 4.1U North American we Lu55.

    I beg for help, after 2 hours my brain hurts.

    If any clarification is required ill reply.

    The Hacks.ini file has to be in the root of the SD card, read FAQ on Preoader.

    What exactly are you trying to do?

    I have been placing the hacks.ini at the root of the sd card. Basically when preloader first starts, im trying to go into systemmenu hacks and turn on the region free hacks. However i keep getting the error stated above.

    And yes, hacks.ini is always in the root of the sd card.

    If someone could link me to a file i could unzip onto my sd card thatd be greatly appreciated. or could tell me why im havin this problem lol

    Did you rename hacks.ini or just extract the rar? Theres a specific region hacks.ini that you have to use.

    Preloader/hacks - WiiBrew


    copy and past the 4.1u section into your hacks.ini file.

    i've tried it, and im still getting the same error. The hacks.ini file is right in the root of my sd card, im trying a "16gb kingston sdhc, a 4gbsdhc, and a 2gb mini with an adapter"

    I think it could be my memory cards tho, i found that the wii was able to boot programs but i had to put the IOS and CIOS's on a usb stick in order for the wii to pick them up. Any ideas?

    Preloader doesn't work with SDHC.

    Edit: Let me rephrase that, Preloader is picky with SD Cards. Like SDHC, try getting a Sandisk.
