Edit by mrblack51:
As evidenced by many posts in this thread and throughout the forum, the "sleeper iso" is both outdated and buggy. Specifically, the default setup installs outdated (ie: old versions of tivoweb, kmem instead of NoCSO, etc), and/or broken hacks (ie: mfs_ftp in some versions, md5sum, joe), uses a non-standard partition layout, and causes unexpected results due to hacks such as the included SPS30 script (search: ghost). While the basic process works, it is highly recommended that you read one of the many threads on using killhdinitrd, which is a better solution. As such, while this method works (with numerous issues that need to be dealt with for a reliable setup), it is not recommended anymore. There is not a another "one step" disk which replaces this one, but there are many boot disks which can be used to hack the drive using the killhdinitrd method. do a search.
edit2: There have been numerous questions/threads/conspiracy theories regarding the ban of sleeper. The facts are clear, and though not being rehashed here (do a search if you are interested), suffice it to say that sleeper will not be responding to any support questions on this board. the ban is permanent and the decision is final, so there is no need to continually bring it up. thanks
edit3 by adh: Requests for TivoScripts support will not be entertained outside this thread. Best bet: just don't use it at all.

PLEASE READ THIS THREAD BEFORE USING - ESPECIALLY THE PART ABOUT THE REPORTED PROBLEMS OTHER PEOPLE HAVE HAD
I have created automated scripts that perform the U5, Prom and Monte installations for SERIES 2 ONLY!!!!!!
U5 (userland hack) has been removed.
Prom is ONLY for tivos that have a new prom which requires soldering
The scripts are on a bootable mfstools disk (ISO) that also includes many of the more common hacks.
To use them you download the ISO, burn the disk and boot from it. You must install a FAT32 drive as Primary Master, a bootable CD drive as Primary Slave and the Tivo drive as Secondary Master.
The scripts are designed to teach what is happening. Each command that is executed has a brief explanation of what the command is doing and prints out the command. The user is prompted to press enter to execute each command and is then presented with a success or failure message.
The main menu will automatically appear upon boot. All the scripts perform 4 phases, any of which can be skipped. The phases are Backup, Restore, Surgery & Final Installation. However, you can not Restore unless you Backed up with the scripts first.
IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL HARD DRIVE AND USE A SECOND DRIVE TO HACK. I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE AS A RESULT OF THESE SCRIPTS OR YOUR OWN NEGLIGENCE.
Suggestions, positive criticism, bugs and ehancement requests are welcome.
Monte - U5 kernel & Minimal fs
Prom - Blow out initrd
Network drivers & Config network
joe editor - not working
prevent daily call (old fixsub)
sort & sps30 scripts
Probably more that I forgot
For additional info please reference the WIKI:
The next couple of post are for me to maintain the FAQ about the scripts.
