does the unzipped 4extrecovery folder on your sdcard contain the files Haret, startup.txt etc? or just 1 folder with those files in? needs to be the first.

Also are you booting using ad sd from magldr?

the unzipped folder contains another folder wich I rename 4EXTRecovery with the haret, startup,etc. I copy that folder into sd with the rom zipped. Then booting using ad sd from magldr.

You mean the 4extreco~ file? Not the 4ext file.

Also did you set all sd partitions as primary using minitool?

Sorry, i know what went wrong, you have to change the name of the folder back to what it was originally, "4ext" or "4extr", then try to boot it.
