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
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.
ya that was the problm. the boot cd i had was bad and did not have bootpage so i thought it would work anyways. but i got a new disk and it is working. Now the fun part. getting the wireless drivers over and everything else! all nighter for me
