    your hacks.ini needs to be on an sd card to be loaded into nand. Preloader needs to see the card to do this and it can be very picky. Only sd is supported so try another card, less than 2g in size and of good quality.

    Hiya MauiFrog - now this could solve my problem too I think. I have a question though. Right now I'm using a SanDisk 2G SD card (class 2). I do have a 1G Sandisk Ultra II that I can use if I have to. If I use that card to get Priiloader to not give me that error message, do I have to keep that card in there from now on?

    No, the hacks.ini will be loaded to nand, after that you do not need the card unless you want preloader to read something from a card, like install a dol into preloaders boot.

    worked like a charm TY!!!

    Now that I've got it installed I've got to figure out what hacks I need to "enable". I wonder if there's one of those "I've got Priiloader installed - now what?!" guides?

    I better start searching...

    There is this

    make sure you have a hack.ini for your system menu. What system menu are you on?

    Actually, I run a 8Gb SDHC, and it works just fine.
