First of all, thanks very much to everybody who's been helping out with this problem.

I'm also having the same error, and have tried literally everything.

I'm using a .dol file, and only getting the "Failed to read boot.elf (-1)" after a series of read errors makes it default to trying to find a .elf file.

I've used the files downloaded from the official homebrew channel web site. Checksum verified.

I've used the files supplied in the recommended thread [ ] and I'm still having the exact same error.

The only thing that changes is each time I try this the read error happens at a different sector of the SD card. I format the card and copy the files over each time to make sure... must have tried this seven or eight times by now.

System rev 3.4u. Zelda rev 0.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated! Thanks again!
