    Looks like mastersav.com is down, unable to d/l the rbautch_files.tgz using the tweak.sh script.

    I would really appreciate if someone could upload a relatively recent version of rbautch_files.tgz as a temporary solution until mastersav.com comes back online.

    Thanks.

    I found an archived version of rbautch_files.tgz dated 11/14/07. This version includes the USB 2.0 backported drivers. I ran the tweak.sh script on 2 DTivos and everything seems to be working well. I ran the script on Tivo software version 6.2a, the script and rbautch_files.tgz may not be compatible with newer tivo software versions.

    If you would like to manually install rbautch_files.tgz, FTP to your dtivo and place the file in your /hacks directory then run tweak.sh I will host the rbautch_files.tgz on my server until mastersav.com is back up and running. If anyone wants to submit newer versions of rbautch_files.tgz, I will host them as well.

    All work obviously is credited to rbautch.

    Access to zipper and enhancement script is back as of Thursday, 4/14/2011.
    Hope it stays up. I still find the info very informative.
    It would be sad to lose such hard work.

    I had a little trouble with my hosting service, but the website is back up and should stay that way.

    Hey Russ, did you add your drive monitor hack to the enhancement script?

    West Palm...
    I hacked my Samsung SIR-S4040R tonight using a 6.2a version downloaded from dvrupgrade. I used version Zipper version 4.6. I am having the following issues:

    1. new script requests short name. I didn't supply one hoping I would get the "bash-2.02#" prompt but instead got "-bash#". How do I change the prompt to "bash-2.02#"?

    2. TivoWebPlus comes up but gets internal server errors on most links. For example the Info page:

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action:info
    path:
    env:
    no such object:
    while executing
    "dbobj $channel get Number"
    ("uplevel" body line 4)
    invoked from within
    "uplevel $body"
    invoked from within
    "transaction {uplevel $body}"
    (procedure "RetryTransaction" line 5)
    invoked from within
    "RetryTransaction {
    set state [db $db open "/State/MyWorld"]
    set channel [dbobj $state get LastChannel]
    set chnum [dbobj $channel get N..."
    (procedure "MOD::action_info" line 51)
    invoked from within
    "$cmd $chan $path $env"
    --cut here--

    I am getting similar messages on other links as well. Any help you could give would be appreciated.

    The 4 components called for by the zipper instructions were:
    1. Zipper scripts 4.6 freshly downloaded tonight
    2. LBA48 Boot CD iso from DVRupgrade (older version from 2006)
    3. Instantcake 6.2a for SIR S4040R
    4a. set_mrv_name from superpatch-67all-NutKase-1.2.zip
    4b. superpatch-6.2a.tcl

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Run this command:
    Code:
     echo "export PS1=\"bash-2.02# \"" >> /.profile
    Then reboot. The may also want to edit your profile to delete the old bash prompt assignment.
    Check the TWP thread for an answer to this.

    Tivowebplus does not require a connection to the internet.

    Code:
    if [ -d /enhancements ]; then
    	echo "Enhancements directory detected. You must uninstall the previous version"
    	echo "of Enhancements before you install this one."
    	sleep 1
    	echo -n "Would you like to uninstall the previous version now? [y/n]: "
    	read uninstall
    	uninstall_loc=`find / -name tweak_uninstall.sh 2>/dev/null`
    	if [ "$uninstall" = "y" ]; then
    		if [ "$uninstall_loc" != "" ]; then
    			chmod 755 $uninstall_loc
    			$uninstall_loc
    		else
    			echo
    			echo "Could not find the uninstall script on your Tivo. Downloading it now..."
    			sleep 3
    			mkdir -p /hacks
    			if wget -q -O /hacks/tweak_uninstall.sh http://www.mastersav.com/tivo_tweak/tweak_uninstall.sh; then
    				echo "Download was successful. Uninstalling previous version now..."
    				chmod 755 /hacks/tweak_uninstall.sh
    				/hacks/tweak_uninstall.sh
    			else
    				echo "Download failed. Exiting..."
    				exit 1
    			fi
    		fi	
    	else
    		echo "exiting..."
    		exit 1
    	fi
    	echo
    	echo "Uninstall successful. Proceeding with main script..."
    	echo
    	sleep 2
    fi
    
    Reading the code it looks for a directory called /enhancements which is what triggers that message. You could rename or delete that directory so that you pass that smell test.

    Answering Y makes it run a script named tweak_uninstall.sh. You may want to make sure you have that script and looks like it should be in the root directory but I'm not positive on that since it later references /hacks/tweak_uninstall.sh.

    Not finding the uninstall script makes it run this code which goes out and gets the script. You may want to make sure your Tivo is connected and can access the internet. If not my suggestion would be running zipper again then coming back to this one.

    Code:
    echo "Could not find the uninstall script on your Tivo. Downloading it now..."
    			sleep 3
    			mkdir -p /hacks
    			if wget -q -O /hacks/tweak_uninstall.sh http://www.mastersav.com/tivo_tweak/tweak_uninstall.sh; then
    
    Russ did a really great job with these scripts and it a shame the premier chain of trust has yet to be broken. Good luck...

    hey guys...

    It's not my intention to turn this into a step by step hacking how-to thread...but I can't seem to find the answer to a few questions. I've got a 6.4a instantcake and ptvnet cd order on its way and plan on trying to remedy my no locals problem with my hacked Phillips DSR704 DTivo this weekend. I bought it years ago already hacked. I think I have pretty good understanding on how to do this myself...but what I what I need to know is:

    1: First of all, will I able to re-hack my DTivo using a 6.4a image? According to others, there will be no MRV and that isnt a deal breaker..I use other features..

    1: Once I'm ready to FTP rbautch's enhancement script to my tivo...does it matter that directory I copy it to? What directory do I use?

    2. Once I'm TELNET'ing and at the bash prompt...what exact command do I type to run it?

    I'll try to keep the tech questions to a minimum..I think I should be able to do the rest with no problem..or feel free to point me in the right direction to where I can find these answers..

    Don't know about 6.4a but you want to put the script in a directory you create called /hacks. Once you log in do:

    cd /hacks
    sh tweak.sh

    Make sure you do a chmod 777 on the script before you try and run it.

    chmod 777 tweak.sh while in the hack directory.

    Thanks.

    so...type..

    cd /hacks
    chmod 777 tweak.sh

    then since I'm already in the /hacks directory..type

    sh tweak.sh

    Do I have to create the /hacks directory or is it already created from running the CD? What's the purpose of the chmod 777?

    How did you hack the Tivo? If you used Zipper then the directory should be there. However, from the root directory you can type ls (lower case LS) and it should show you the directories. If you need to create it use mkdir tweaks.

    chmod is how you change the permissions on a file or folder and in this case you're making the file executable. YOu can't run the script unless it's executable.

    Haven't done it yet..just getting my ducks in a row for when I do it this weekend. I'll be hacking it using the PTVNET CD and then running the enhancement script. I'm re-doing my drive in hopes of getting my local channels back because I'm still running 6.2 and half of my local channels have disappeared. It is by popular opinion on another thread here that updating to 6.4a solves the problem. I'm hoping that making a new drive with a 6.4a INSTANTCAKE CD and then hacking it with the PTVNET CD will get me back in business. I've just never ran the enhancement script before...my box was already hacked when I bought it. I can get the drive up and going...just kinda green on commands and such for running the script once I TELNET the Tivo. If you have the time, I'D LOVE a step by step on running the script if you want to message it to me..I'd appreciate it greatly! I would love to learn so I can do this myself!

    I wished I could give you a more step by step but that's all there is to it. Once the script start it will ask you a series of questions which is custom to your preference then it will do its thing.

    The first post of this thread gives you the questions it will ask and explain what each means. It's one of those things you have to do before you'll believe how easy it is.

    OK Thanks...let's see if I have this correct then:

    FTP the script to the hacks directory..or any directory I want as long as I can find it?

    Telnet the DirecTivo and once I make it to the bash prompt:

    type:

    cd /hacks
    chmod 777 tweak.sh

    (then type)

    sh tweak.sh

    ...Correct?
