    Hello! I installed unlaunch on my Nintendo DSI XL (1.45E) using this guide: dsicfwguide/installing-unlaunch. There were no problems during the installation, but when I powered off and restarted my console, it appeared an "ERROR: BAD VBR". It disappears when I hold the A button during the boot. But what means that error, and how can I fix it? Also I notice that the "bootcode.dsi" isn't executing, I don't know why. Could you help me please?

    Ok, thanks!

    Edit:

    I fixed it. The problem was the microSD card. It was a 2gb microSD which couldn't be formated as FAT32[64kbytes] (the maximum value of the allocation unit size was 16 kilobytes) and this is why I got the bad vbr error message. I fixed it by replacing the microSD with a 4gb SDHC formatted as FAT32[64kbytes]

    such a useful answer

    I just had the same issue and -for the sake of documenting- I believe this issue is related to the SD's Partition Table type, in which it has to be msdos in order to work
