    Skipping TWP uninstall...
    Skipping CallerID uninstall...
    Skipping fakecall restore...

    Deleting the profile...
    No backup splash screen found, skipping splash restore...
    Done!
    Herb's Tivo-bash# sh tweak.sh
    Downloading latest Enhancement script...
    wget: www.mastersav.com: Host name lookup failure

    Do you want to run the "express" version (for advanced users)? [y/n]: n
    tweak.sh: /enhancements/start.sh: No such file or directory
    Do you want to continue? [y/n]: y

    Herb's Tivo-bash#

    Make sure your Tivo is connected to your network and can get out to the Internet without being blocked by your router or a firewall. If it still doesn't work, check your DNS settings.

    Yes. The first post where it says this "Usage: unzip the attached script, FTP it to your Tivo, and run it. ItÂ’s interactive, so you can pick and choose exactly what it installs, and it comes with an uninstall script so you can remove everything easily."

    I just downloaded the zip file, tweak.sh was in it and I opened it up with metapad and its not blank. You do know the tweak.sh file gets put on the Tivo and then you run it inside the Tivo? Try downloading it again, and if you want to look inside it you can use wordpad if you don't have metapd.

    I ftp'ed the file (i was wrong it isn't blank), ran dos2unix on it and here were my results: (note that I have my firewall disabled and I'm using a d-link dir-655)

    Thats your problem right there. I just ran the script and you should get this back from it "Downloading latest Enhancement script...
    Connecting to www.mastersav.com[69.90.236.30]:80
    rbautch_files.tgz 100% |*****************************| 2922 KB 00:00 ETA
    Downloaded main scripts successfully!"


    I see you turned your firewall off, try what rbautch said earlier
    I don't use hyperterminal I use putty so I don't know any of the settings in it, open up a telnet session and try to ping a website, I am going to bet it wont work. So just try what rbautch has already said.

    I need to get my 3 Zippered DTivos "modernized".

    They are all still running V6.2 and have old hacks. I tried the "no slices" upgrade from V6.2 to V6.2a a while back, but it did not seem to work... of course, the time displayed in the schedule was off for an hour during the DST weeks between the old and the new.

    I do have the V6.2a slices in my MFS SwSystem directory.

    I need a sanity check that my planned steps to a hacked V6.2a system are correct:

    1. Buy the "slicer" and run it on each of my boxes per instructions at http://www.dvrupgrade.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6
    2. Reboot so that it is now running the V6.2a image
    3. Run tweak_uninstall.sh to clean out the old hacks
    4. Download, copy and run the latest tweak.sh to put in the latest & greatest hacks

    Does this look workable?

    Thanks!

    Update: I just looked at the latest tweak.sh and it looks like it finds the uninstaller, or downloads one if it needs it... so i looks like I can skip step 3 altogether.

    That should work fine. tweak.sh itself never changes - it's just a wrapper script that downloads and installs the latest version of the main script, which is called start.sh. One more thing you'll need to do is reapply superpatch. Follow the link in the Zipper directions to download the 6.2a version from DDB.

    All went well - thanks rbautch :up::)

    Two of my boxes didn't have the slice that I wanted (I decided to make them match their hardware type) so I first had to grab the desired slice and do a dbload on them.

    After that, I just did
    1. slicer <desired version name>
    2. ran superpatch
    3. ran tweak.sh (deleted old stuff, loaded all new tweaks)
    Of course, I had to download stuff, move it to my DTivos, reboots, etc.

    I upgraded using Sapper and Slicer from 7.2 to 9.1 After I applied the slices I lost my network connection. Could not telnet or perform FTP.

    I have a Toshiba sd-h400 series 2 box

    The steps I took.

    1. Used SApper to apply a new image
    2. Setup the network with Static IP
    3. Script ran just fine no errors.
    4. Put HD back in box
    5. Ran Sapper script for remaining hacks
    6. Verified it all worked. And it did after guide setup.
    7. Verified that 9.1 update was brought down and waiting to be installed.
    8. Ran Slicer with no problems or errors.
    9. Lost network connectivity after that. IP is still there but no Signal present.

    My Question is did I do something wrong here?

    And if this is what happens!! then how do I restore the network back? so I can Telnet, FTP and get guide info again.

    As you can tell I'm kind of new at this. Last time I touched the box was a year ago.

    Any help out there?

    Thanks

    The...
    I have found that every single time I use Slicer, I've lost all telnet access, and rezippering never has worked to restore it. I end up having to Instantcake the whole thing from scratch. Because of this, I have abandoned the use of Slicer altogether.

    Get a serial cable for debugging. If you don't have one, then you may have to pull your drive and rehack the new software.

    This is why I'd recommed to read thru the scripts you're using to get at least get some idea of what they're doing. Reimaging just because of lost telnet access is COMPLETELY unneccesary.

    Well that's not good news.

    I'm not sure if I have a driver issue because I'm going from 7.2 to 9.1.
    My last go around I answered yes to the question about the 2.0 usb drivers needed to be downloaded and applied. First time I did not do that. But I'm not to keen on applying the slices and finding out that I need to do this all over again.

    The fact that it says no signal makes me think it may be a driver issue. The USB device is a Linksys WUSB11 USB WiFi Wireless TiVo Adapter. Has been running well since Oct of 2006.

    I now have it back on 7.2 with everything working again. If I run Slicer my thinking is it's going to wack the network again Unless the 2.0 drivers are required with 9.1 upgrade.

    Anyone have any issues like this? How did you fix it?
