    I read somewhere that the -1 error = error with some of the hardware, probably SD card or something? make sure you have enough free blocks (at least 500)...

    Yeah, I think that's it.

    Maybe back up your SD card, format to FAT and try again. Also, maybe use a card that's

    -1 means the file can't be found on the SD card, so either it's your card, OR there is a problem with your wireless connection.

    Make sure you're showing an IP address in HBC (when you press home) before you try launching the upgrader. It shouldn't be required but it lets you know your wifi is working properly.
