    Yeah, I've learned my /var lesson!

    I do have the components to build a serial cable...maybe it's finally time I put it together. How would it work using that?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    I'm a Linux/Tivo newb, I need explicit instructions! ;) :eek:

    I've already got the telnet bash over ethernet. So I've been doing a little research...found something about zmodem, rz/sz? I'm still trying to figure out how exactly to transfer the file over serial. Do I need some special software on the PC side?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Edit - Hey, I think I found the explicit instructions I need! http://www.tivohelp.com/archive/tivohelp.swiki.net/37.html

    I'm not trying to make more work for you because the script is already fantastic. One option maybe to ask whether you want to append to the author file for each section - if reinstalling then you could answer no to all the previous installs. Another option would be to grep the author file to see if the strings exists and then ask whether to overwrite, etc.

    Of course, this would open the install script up to a whole new set of user errors :eek: .

    Hey Guys, I just hacked one of my tivos w/ the zipper and it worked amaingly :):):) but I want to hack my hr10-250 unit. I ran the zipper on the drive and have a working bash prompt into the tivo but when i try to run the superscript it says that my software is not supported???I know at least 7 people in this forum have upgraded their hr10-250 what am I doing wrong?

    I want to but have read(not sure who) that it was not only not necessary but not
    a good idea..
    true/false??

    personally I want it but have to ask

    The HR10-250 runs an older version of the TiVo software than the other DTiVos do. You can hack it and do some stuff, but not nearly as much. If you can telnet into it you've got about 50% of the hacks that we can talk about here on it already. TiVoweb and CID are the main two hacks people put on it. Do some reading around in the Underground here and see what folks are running on their HR10-250s. That'll give you an idea what can and cannot be done on it.

    The HR10-250 works with the Zipper and the enhancement script. The only catch is that you have to have 3.1.5f or 3.1.5e software, which were the latest versions. The superpatch doesnt work on 3.x software, so I have to do manual tivoapp patches in the script. I can't make up tivoapp patches to cover every past version of the software. So, upgrade your software and try again.

    just want to say I am sorry and should read my own words before posting.
    I said MFS because that was the line I was on in the script when I thought of some questions.

    MFS ask for the other tivo address and since I have not assigned static addresses
    this should be skipped?

    In netconfig should I give the tivo a static IP ?
    I have heard that its a good idea and some post on ddb have said
    its not.
    a lot of this was posted when I did my first tivo last june...with lots of failures :)

    what should I do, set it up static ip adresses, or does it matter, right now I am not transferring between tivos anyway. I have not run any cables yet between the two.


    again sorry for not checking my own post...it was stupid
    but then again so am I LOL

    I hope this makes more since.

    Okay, so I pulled the drive and got FTP working again. Put the tivotools binaries in /busybox. Can't get the script to work, though - for some reason the path to the busybox commands isn't working.

    I added the following to rc.sysinit.author:
    Code:
    export PATH=$PATH:/busybox
    Should I use the line from the 6.2 unguide?
    Code:
    export PATH=./:.:/utils:/bin:/sbin:/tvbin:/tivobin:/busybox
    Or should I have it in a separate ".profile" file like I had previously? Along with with a statement for the Library Path? I'm not sure if I need that anymore...
    Code:
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/var/hack/lib
    export PATH=$PATH:/var/hack/bin
    Thanks guys!

    Oh yeah, I had one more question:

    As the script runs and installs the enhancements, does it modify rc.sysinit.author also?

    No problem. Static or dhcp doesnt matter, even if you MRV. MRV requires IP params set in MFS, regardless of static or dhcp.

    Use this in your author file:
    Code:
    export PATH=./:.:/utils:/bin:/sbin:/tvbin:/tivobin:/busybox

    Yes, but it backs up your original author file first.

    thank you very much rbautch for the answer and your script.
    I have a question on the usb side

    after the patch I was curious about what is active in my tivo

    lsmod shows this

    Module Size Used by Not tainted
    af_packet 12096 2
    ax8817x 26864 1
    usb-ohci 23888 0 (unused)
    usbcore 101936 0 [ax8817x usb-ohci]
    router 66896 36
    therm 1488 0
    fan 2240 0
    ideturbo 5216 1
    irblast 3792 0 (unused)
    brcmdrv-rb 1228256 138
    cobra 91264 4
    oslink 26112 13
    ircatch 26832 2
    i2c_Series2 14320 0 [therm fan cobra]
    modemtty_Series2 4896 0
    fpga 1920 2
    tivoconfig 960 0 (unused)

    the usb.map show that this is for a version2

    device ax8817x
    product 13b1 0018 Linksys USB200MV2
    is this the same for a version1?

    the original usb.map listed
    device ax8817x
    product 077b 2226 Linksys USB200M

    thanks for info, I are confused LOL

    Nope, that doesn't do the trick, either.

    Should I put all this stuff in from the unguide?
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    export TIVO_ROOT=""
    export MFS_DEVICE=/dev/hda10
    export PATH=./:.:/utils:/bin:/sbin:/tvbin:/tivobin:/busybox
    I'm not sure if that other stuff works with my 3.1.5d kernel.

    I used to have a ".profile" file to set the path, should I go back to that?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Okay, .profile did the trick for the path. I couldn't get the script to download the file for some reason, so I manually downloaded it and put it it in the same folder.

    Ran the script and it worked great, thanks so much rbautch!!!

    But - now my .profile doesn't set the path anymore, I guess it was changed. Is there a way to show the hidden .profile with a FTP client so I can transfer it over and then append to it?

    Also...I don't see AlmostThere.png in /tvbin?
    Edit - Found the answer for this one. http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=3763610&&#post3763610

    Thanks,
