    failed to read boot.elf problem (NEED QUICK REPLY)

    iv been getting this while i do the thing with the hack and zelda where it comes up with the black background with white text it says failed to read boot.elf. Iv tried reformating the SD card but no luck. Both Quick format and full format. Should i do it as FAT32, FAT or what. thanks

    FAT16 is best .. but I think my friend had this problem also .. only because he didn't have anything in the apps folder.

    Have you already installed the Homebrew Channel? If not .. look for the download and put in in SDCARD:\apps\ folder.
