Hi. I'm late to the party, but I am interested on repairing/hacking a SIR-S4080R receiver with a dead HD. I posted what I think are the steps to follow on another thread (can't link it due to low post count), but I'm going to repost here to hopefully get the right eyeballs. So far, it seems to me like the easiest way to get this going is gonna be to get a copy of InstantCake and the LBA48 CD from DVRUpgrade. I was planning on using The Zipper to help me build the proper boot CD to install and hack the image, but I already have some questions at this (early) stage. I'm not sure which version of superpatch I should use. Seems that Superpatch-67all should work, but there's also the apparently superior tvapppatch.tcl script. Will that work with The Zipper? If you read my original thread, apparently there's also a second, more hands-on way of performing the hack. Does anybody have any input on whether it makes sense to go that route? Your input is greatly appreciated.
