    Hello all,
    I just acquired both of these for a total of $40. I have a older Series 2 non-DT hacked.

    TCD649080
    TCD649180

    Are either of these hackable, I have been searching everywhere and as far as I can tell I think I can install a modded PROM chip?

    What I really need to do is gain Shell access.

    Are these the same process as a SA Series2?

    Any help and or a good tutorial on what to do would be greatly appreciated

    Anything with a TSN of 5 or higher needs a PROM mod, still. Once that and OS level hacks are implemented, most other Series 2 additions are pretty universal.

    I know about the PROM mod and I will take care of that. So I should be able to use the instructions I had for the S2 Tivo and implement them on this unit?

    Is the OS hack different then the the S2. I know I have a lot of reading to do but just need a tutorial or something I can look at.

    Thank you

    All I want to know is hacking the TCD649080 the same as TCD540080? I know they both need a PROM MOD.

    Thank you

    To get to shell, they should be the same.

    Thank you for the replay!

    I have the tutorials for the older series 2 I did but cannot find ones for the DT's I would like hack this and add additional items to it. Not really sure where to look.

    Any ideas, I have looked through many sites

    I'm afraid you just missed prom day over on the site which may not be named here, but you need to "deal" with its "database" for "com"plete information about prom modding and related hacking, and should go there and read, read, read.

    I have completed a PROM before via the DIY. But I do know where you are talking about.

    Thanks

    BTW I do have a DIY on the way.
