    Failed to read boot.elf (-1) - Please help.

    I have searched this forum and multiple websites. I have tried 3 different sd cards and have tried formatting them many times. I keep on getting the error message "Failed to read boot.elf (-1)" when trying to do the twilight hack. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Later versions do not recognise .ELF files but .DOL.......... you can search and use the ELF to DOL convertor OR use this guide & files

    PLease read this thread. I give this thread 5 stars. This is best way to do the simple job. please just use boot.dol instead of .elf. it works

    there is a download compressed to one file you can get thru this thread
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...atutorial.html

    it has all tool you need.
