I checked a few threads with this problem, but I have been unable to get it to work. I upgraded a friends Wii that was to 4.0 updated before using Nintendo's update servers. I was able to use IOS36 patcher and WiiSCU to update a few of the IOSs. Preloader 0.29 installed fine, but the hacks.ini is not working on the root of the SD. I tried using a regular SD and an SDHC card, I tried renaming the hacks.ini file to hacks and I tried a few different hacks.ini files I found around here, but I still get the error message that "blah blah hacks.ini not found on FAT or NAND". Any suggestions?
