    I'm trying to restore my series2 to the original drive, but it's not working. The tivo just loops, rebooting after the logo screen. I'm using mfstools 2.0 (statically linked linux/x86 elf binary).

    I tried with and without backing up /var:

    ./mfstool backup /dev/sdg -v -s -o /tmp/tivo.bak
    ./mfstool backup -s -o /tmp/tivo.bak /dev/sdg

    and when restoring, I've also tried different options:

    ./mfstool restore /dev/sdg -i /tmp/tivo.bak
    ./mfstool restore /dev/sdg -x -r 1 -p -s 64 -v 128 -z -i /tmp/tivo.bak

    Am I missing something?
