I’m trying to hack a Sony Series 2 with 300GB WD drive. I ran through steps 1 & 2 of the Jenkins hack procedure to gain Telnet access, but it didn’t work (I couldn’t access the TiVo thru Telnet). I popped the drive back into my PC and noticed that all the new files and /hack directory were missing.

I thought initrd might be the culprit, so I ran ./kill_initrd info. That returned the error:

Error – No TiVo drive detected.

I re-ran all the Jenkins steps again and just for kicks, I re-booted with the Jenkins disk again to look for the files and the /hack directory. They were all gone again! And this time, the drive never even made it to the TiVo.

What’s going on? :confused:

Thanks BTUx9.

I don’t quite understand how a checksum is initiated on the drive while it’s in my PC.

TWP requires a new directory, but it'll be blown away before I even get to fire it up in the TiVo. So how do I load the necessary hacks w/o losing them immediately?
