    Ok, so I got everything up and running but i have 2 problems that are kicking me in the ass. First, I cant get my Preloader hacks to work. I keep getting the "your hacks for system 417 are not found" notice. Secondly i cant get my DVDX to work. I have the cios for usb2.0 installed and I have DVDx installed to ios 202 but its not working... PLEASE HELP!!!

    1) Do you have "hacks.ini" in the root of the sd card and if you dont have it download softmii it comes with it just rename it from hacks.NTSC.ini > hacks.ini

    2) Don't know much i just installed it and used it to see movies.

    1) I have hacks.ini in the root of my card and I still get that message

    2) @ FenrirWolf: Do you have the USB Cios installed or not?

    THIS PLACE IS NOT A BLOG.

    God, LightyKD, every single time I see you post on a thread, you'd make it like a blog (Posting twice, thrice).

    About the hacks.ini, are you using SDHC? Preloader does not support SDHC so use a normal SD Card, just once (Ya, launch Preloader, apply the hacks, and you're done).

    But it's against the rules to double-post, triple-post for your case.

    And yes, about the blogging style, I really meant double/triple post.

    I think your problem lies within either the:

    1)hacks.ini
    2)SD Card

    Let's run a troubleshoot. Make sure that the file is named hacks.ini (Not HACKS.INI or Hacks.ini) and placed in the root of your SD Card.

    Then again, from your post history, I can see that you are running on Mac (Which I presume doesn't have Notepad to open the hacks.ini? I'm not familiar with Macs). So........ you gotta find a way to look into the hacks.ini and confirm the hacks version is 417 (Not 416 or 418).

    If everything is confirmed, then the problem lies in your SD Card [​IMG].

    Open your hacks.ini file on the computer and go to the very last line and hit enter.

    It will make an empty line at the very bottom after all the hacks text.
    Some people have reported thats why hacks dont show up.

    Thats how its set up on mine and i have region free hacks.(Not sure if it works though because i dont have a game to test it)

    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!
    SERIOUSLY NOTHING TO DO WITH HATIN OR BLOGS ....BUT USE THE FUCKING EDIT POST TAB OR YOUR GONNA GET A LOT OF HATE! LIKE THESE HERE CAPS DO! LOL

    uninstall dvdx and just do the "normal" install if you do not have a modchip you dont need to specify the ios it installs on just click "normal install" also try a new hacks.ini using HIC (hacks INI creator) be sure to run Hacks.ini remover before adding your new and fresh hacks.ini file [​IMG]
