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?

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

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

I put the files on sd card with a card reader, and I download first the second file in the link where I download it from then I tried the last file.

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.

the "4extrecovery" folder, rename it back to original name. It should have the haret etc files inside. Then navigate to that folder using ad sd dir, then boot ad sd.
