    Update-
    I've read elsewhere that Series 1's (SAT T60 and Phillips 6000) need 3.5c or 3.5d software in order to work now, as there has been a change to the guide data. When I have time, I'll try to...

    SAT T60 stuck between 50% and 60%, Telnet OK

    Today the Tivo restarted, for unknown reasons, and never reaches 100%. It is at version 3.1.0c2-01-1-011.

    Telnet still works, and recorded programs can be watched. However, I can't access the 'to...

    I think your editing removed the 'executable' permission from the rc.sysinit, which means the Tivo won't finish booting and you can't get a BASH prompt. You'll have to pull the drive and run:

    If you have a copy of your kernel on your pc, make a few backups and then use s2_fix_kernel2 (or a hex editor) to find other instances. For instance, keep running

  16. Re: S2 stuck "powering up"

    Well, I see one problem, but not THE problem. When this script is running, root is the 3.0 software. Thus this code snippet is sending rc.sysinit.author to the 3.0 partition, not the 4.0 partition.

    Er, the KERNEL is the same, but the INIT_RD is different. In order to run the 2-kernel monte, you need the u5 because the INIT_RD that allows the BASH_ENV hack to work.
