    The utility you dowload should be called "tivotools" and should contain much more than dos2unix and tar. You're looking at the wrong directions, however. The directions in the enhancement thread are meant for pople not running the zipper. Just follow the directions on the zipper site, and you'll be fine.

    Gunny, I used the zipper on my 40gb previously unhacked drive and everything works fine, Thanks!
    I want to increase the drive size by upgrading, do I follow the regular Hinsdale type method and can I save recordings?

    Gunny, I went back and triple checked everything on the cd. All files were exactly as spelled out in the guide, except the vm.linux.gz file is 1.14 MB, not the 1k shown in the pic. Also, the pic shows the author file to be 1k where as the one I am using from the tools cd is 489 bytes. I am using rbautch files from 11/13. The zipper does seem to run fine and I can get bash which is strange. Would the usb/ethernet adaptor even light up if the hacks were not intalled? Are the ethernet drivers loaded by default when using 6.2? Since I can get bash, is there a simple way to transfer over fakecall.tcl and just run it from there?

    Gunny, I think I figured out why I was able to get back into TivoWeb in the morning. Rbautch's script sets the cron setup to restart TivoWeb at 3am.

    So I guess I will wait until tomorrow morning go into TivoWeb and restart Telnet.
    Also, I will change the Tivoweb and Telnet boot buttons to green so they start on a Tivo reboot which they must not be doing now.

    Does that plan make sense?

    thing is, if hackman has telnet turned off it will stay that way
    hackman modifies your authorfile

    On my other unit when I saw what was happening I changed the boot buttons to green for Tivoweb and Telnet and saved. Then I rebooted and I had access so it looks to have updated the authorfile. So the same procedure should work on my other unit when I can get into Tivoweb on its daily restart, don't you think?

    Let's steer this thread back on course. It's for discussion of the Zipper installation only. After you're zippered, please read the threads dedicated to the hacks your using first, and then if you still have questions, post a question there, or start a new thread in the underground forum. Reference this for more information on the reasoning. Out of necessity (and Gunnyman's sanity), general hacking questions in this thread will start to be ignored.

    I think 250 is about as big as you want to go before you have to modify the tivo swap file size which isn't trivial to do.
