    I just had to recopy my tivo. First i need help to get serial bash. I tried in my rc.sysinit /bin/bash </dev/ttyS3 &> /dev/ttyS3 & and /bin/bash </dev/ttyS2... ttyS1.
    Nothing seems to work. I have a standalone series 2 tivo. all i need to do is get a bash on seral. Also it may be possible that the seral connector

    Create a test.conf file in root with
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/tvbin:/busybox
    /bin/bash </dev/ttyS2&> /dev/ttyS2&
    in it. Adjust the PATH as needed for your setup if you have tivotools installed in a different dir than busybox.

    well right now i have nothing installed. all i did so far was copy the orig and dd the hacked vmlinux over. also how is this different then being in the rc.sysinit ir rc.sysinit.author file?

    For bare bash all you need is a kill'd kernel in place. Calling bash from test.conf as opposed to rc.sysinit or rc.sysinit.author basically just brings it up almost immediately when the tivo is booting up. It's a good thing to have in place if you screw something up down the line and want to get bash up before tivoapp is loaded. It's kept me from having to pull the drive a few times so far.

    No idea. Do you get any output from the serial console?? If so, then post it. Do you have
    Code:
    dsscon=true console=2,115200
    in your bootpage??
