    clarify further please.
    Did you use the Zipper or Rbautch's enhance script?

    Now I get it. Since you posted here in the Enhancement Script thread and did not mention the Zipper in your posts, I had no idea you ran the Zipper, which does not yet support the HR10-250. The Zipper does indeed overwrite your author file, because it is a Hack Script meant for unhacked tivos without author files. Since your tivo is already hacked, you have no reason to run the Zipper, but rather you should just run the Enhancement script. Try again by using the file in the first post of this thread, but before you run it. Edit your /etc/resolv.conf file to reflect your correct DNS (usually your router).

    I mispoke, I ran zipper and enhancements on the 6.2 HDVR2, I only ran enhancements on the HR10-250, after the other files I had listed.

    I need a way to get the Bashprompt to work when I use Telnet into the HR10-250 so I can run your tweaks script.

    When I connect the HR10-250s drive to my computer and run zipper.sh, it sees there is no 6.2 on the Tools CD, and procedes to use the existing version of the program 3.1f. The zipper script runs till it starts copying the hacked Kernel to the Tivo drive. The error message is:

    vmlinux_.g2 40.4 % replaced with vmlinux_
    mv:unable to rename vmlinux_ no such file or directory
    mv: unable to rename utils no such file or directory
    DD opening '/Tivo/Var/vmlinux.px no such file or directory
    problem copying hack kernel to the tivo drive with dd
    Aborting.

    I am not using the origianl Tivo drive. I did a backup and mfsrestore to a new 250 gig drive. I've tried this twice with the same results

    Please tell me how to get bashprompt and the tweaks script onto the drive so I can get caller ID to work. I don't care if this gets overwritten when the next version of the software comes out. I want 6.2 on my HR10-250 if it ever gets release.

    By the way, I ran your scripts, zipper and tweaks on my Samsung DirecTivo and they worked great so I know the CDs are ok. Thanks for your help.

    sheesh Zipper DOES NOT WILL NOT CAN NOT run on a HD Tivo.
    getting bash prompt is doable though. There are guides out there to get it done. I think there's one called ironman's guide or something.

    The Zipper does not yet work with the HR10-250. You'll have to wait for the next version that does. Otherwise, hack it manually using Ironman's guide.

    ONE MORE TRY. I think I stated everything right tthis time..

    Last year I used "sleeper" on a 4.01b HRVR2, and that was a helpful script. The zipper script had worked perfectly on the HDVR2 now running TiVo OS 6.2, and I get transfer rates of over 2.2 Megs/sec with the machine in standby mode.

    Now I also have an HR10-250. I have 3.1.5f with two 300 Gig HD, started with a legally purchased Instant cake, and had applied changes as suggested by http://www.imbetterthanyou.com/hr10-250 and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hdtiv...ication_HOW_TO/. Everything worked fine, Telnet, FTP, TiVoWeb, fakecall, Tserver; but since enhancements applied more stuff, and said it worked with an HR10-250, I tried that.

    When I ran the 11/13/05 enhancements on the HR10-250, I now realize it created an rc.sysinit.author.bak of zero bytes length, such that when it appended its code to that, it left me with an rc.sysinit.author that didnt turn on the USB ports or Ethernet or ftp or telnet. Luckily I had a backup to my rc.sysinit.author on my PC to restore.

    Is there an outside attribute or some syntax inside of an rc.sysinit.author that would cause the enhancement scripts to fail to properly back it up? Or some option in the script I should have passed on? I am not for a minute suggesting that it isn't possible the fault may be with me. But there is also a greater than zero possibility of something in the script causing this unexpected result.

    I suggest running the uninstall script, then confirm everyting is back to where it was before you started. Also make sure the author file is in place, and is not empty. Re-run the Enhancement script, and see if the same thing happens.

    Any idea when you'll have the next version out that works on the HR10-250?

    soon as someone sends us a pair of HDTivos we'll get right on it.

    As this plea for help got exactly zero response, I'm not sure how big the demand is for it. Tsunami and MisterEd were kind enough to come through for me, but it's not my top priority.

    I have a theory on what might be causing this. The latest directions require HR10-250 users to install Alphawolfs all-in-on utilities in /busybox, and I suspect that you did not. I think the root of the issue is that you're missing some key utilities used by the script, including, sed and cat. There is a series of commands that modify your path statement in your author file to include the enhancements directory. Here are the lines that do it:
    Code:
    cat /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author | sed -e '/PATH=/s/$/:\/enhancements/' > /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author2
    mv /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author2 /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author
    You can try these commands one by one at the bash prompt to see if they produce the same results. Did you get any errors as you ran the enhancement script?

    Wow, no replies to that thread! I meet your criterion, but I don't have the drives (or the drive?) to hack my HR10. Maybe Santa will come through for me. Are you testing to see if the zipper can have the same functionality on the HR10 as the regular DTiVos? I gather that I would have to hack it to find out what files are on it (or at the very least pull the drive).

    I forgot the principal Zipper tester had an HR10! I got the info I needed to create a beta version of the new Zipper. Perhaps some prospective HR10 Zipper users can pitch in and get you a spare drive. :p

    Sorry, I could have replied originally (I did see your first thread), but I thought it would have been stupid to reply to your request by saying "Yes I do, but sorry I can't help". :D

    I've been scouring pricewatch and similar sites for good HD deals. If I'm going to hack it I might as well increase the recording space.

    How about a 300gig drive for $79. I just posted a link on DDB.

    I have a new HR10-250 coming on tuesday with a fresh 300 gig drive. I already have one in the bedroom that I used the ironman guide or a combination of a couple. I'd love to test the script for you when it arrives.
