    Hi,
    I just found out about about tivo tool. I was wondering how to get my tivo hacked in order to install the vserver. What do I need to do? Should I get the TiVo wireless G USB network adapter?

    Thanks,
    elictricocean

    The tivo tool wiki says I should back up the drive. What kind of drive are they talking about?

    I couldn't explain any better than it is in there. I think then you may need to dig alittle deeper, ie: the stickys at the top of the forum.

    That is TOTALLY up to you. As for me - I would not work on a device without one. Think of it this way, if you really mess it up and it becomes a doorstop what are you going to do then?

    Well I have been reading it. If I am understanding it correctly, I have to take the wholde tivo drive out of the tivo and connect it to my mac. Is there any other way?

    Nope. That's why it is in the directions.
