When HBCb9 came out, they decided that they no longer need to support any invalid .elf files. If you have .elf files, you need to convert then to .dol with some little program that gets buried in some directory when/if you install devkitPro. This script will automate the task of converting all your stuff. It even comes with that little program so you don't need to install the entire devkitPro.
What do I do?
There are 3 files in the archive. Do whatever you want with the readme.txt, but put the other 2 files in your apps folder on the sd card (you need that sd card reader again :-/). Then just run the elf-dol_converter file and follow the directions on the screen. On linux you may have to do chmod 755 elf-dol_converter first.
* This deletes the old .elf files after it's done with them. If you want to keep them either back them up beforehand, or edit the script to not erase.
* There are some valid .elf files out there. Running this script on them will cause them to stop working. Backup your apps folder before you run this.
List of apps with valid .elf files
These should not be run through this converter. Backup these programs before running this script, as it doesn't have the smarts to avoid them. Feel free to add to this list if you find something that should be in it. So far the list is:
* Kobo Deluxe
Cheapo workaround is to rename (not convert) a valid boot.elf to boot.dol. HBC still loads it just fine, and this script will ignore it. Not ideal, but we're all hackers here, right?
