Ret=-4100 SUGGESTED FIX: You have a bad WAD; get another one. Ret=-1 SUGGESTED FIX: Reformat your card. Normal capacity needs to be reformatted to FAT; SDHC (4GB-32GB) need to be reformatted to FAT32.

Then, extract all files to the root of your SD card. All wad files are to remain in the root. They should mirror the image below. Please note that this is assuming that you don't have a pre-existing apps folder in your SD card.
