Advertisements I have a few questions that I would like to see if someone can answer for me. I applied the sapper onto my 8.3 software and it seems everything is working well. I had to dump my wireless card for the Tivo branded one, but things work. I find reference to having to maintain the Sapper hack as the different upgrades are sent to the Tivo. Can someone tell me what those maintenance procedures are. Everyone keeps referring to the need to allow the update, re-apply the hack etc., but I do have some questions. 1. If the sapper is installed with setting the updates to false (eg. hda4), how is the update received? Is it received but just not applied? Do you have to change the false to true and then the Tivo applies the update? Do you then apply the Sapper again? 2. Is the software update applied to another root partition (eg. hda7), then that root partition becomes active and the old partition, hda4, inactive? Does this mean you have to now run the Sapper on the new partition? 3. What happens to the old partition that had the original hack? If another update is downloaded can that old partition be updated, or is it blocked by the original software update=false command? 4. How is the slicer involved in this process with Sapper? After the upgrade downloads do you run slicer from the hack directory of hda4? Like I said, there are a few references about maintenance, but it is not spelled out clearly. I ask this because I had a Tivo hack and ended up loosing the whole drive because the machine kept doing the download and prompting for the unit to be restarted. I restarted the unit and the old software was still there, and I was out of the guide data and could not even watch any of the recorded shows. I just could not get answers for the Sapper. Most of the posts are vague on how this whole software update procedure works.
