    Hop on your eMule and look for tivo540.virgin.40G.mfsbackup.bak (I suggest byte dev ils.com ). Or, if you're in a hurry you could always go to ptvupgrade.com and buy the Instant Cake CD image for the 540xxx.

    If you lack a 3.1.5 kernel, consider purchasing the PTVupgrade LBA-48 enhanced cd for $5. It has killhdinitrd kernels on it.

    Lastly, this site had kernels as of 3-11-06.

    I have a SD-DVR40. It was not hacked, but since I do not have a phone line, it was not upgraded to 6.2, so I was still running 3.1.1e. I hacked that with killhdinitrd and used the slices method upgrade to 6.2. I tried using the 3.1.5 kernel on the above site, but I get failure reason 53. I researched this and found out that this is due to a bad kernel. So, it seems the kernel they have is bad. Anybody have a 3.1.5 kernel (kill'd or not)?

    Thanks.

    Edit: tried finding it on emule, with no success.

    The kernels on that site are packed using gzip. Did you unpack it before copying it to the boot partition?

    Yes.

    The readme file says they are already kill'd, so I could not compare the md5 with those reported in the killhdinitrd thread. Anyway, I checked, and they don't match.

    FWIW, I used the 3.1.5 killhd kernel from that site; admittedly it was a few months ago but it worked for me...

    As above, this is a minimal image, meaning it will fit on any size drive > 1GB, and must be expanded (-x) when restored. It's using one partition pair, so it can be expanded twice; useful if you upgrade drives again later. The image doesn't have the capacity lock that a stock sd-h400 image would have. Other than that, everything is stock (unhacked).

    Thanks for the link, but it's not downloading. i'll give it a while longer.

    sorry for asking, but a minimal images means what? no tivo background movies, ect? i'm assuming so because of the file size.

    Basically it is a very clean image. It has everything it would have if it came fresh from the factory and was never booted before.
    Before PMing me: Iím not your personal tech support. If you have a question, ask in public so I don't have to repeat if somebody else asks. If you want images or slices, use emule. I will ignore all support PMs.

    Sponsor a vegetarian! I have taken the pledge, how about you?

    As AlphaWolf said, it's a full image with all background animation loopsets. It just doesn't have any extra cruft an image from a "used" tivo has, and it can fit on any size disk > 1GB.

    eMule requires patience. If you've left yourself connected for 12 hours and still haven't seen anything (I've seen no requests in the last 24 hours), then PM me and we can arrange another form of transport.

    If you tried to get this before and couldn't, you might try again -- there's another seeder for it now.

    YAY! i got the image, but i've only dealt with .bak files (not a linux person, and pretty much just deal with the hindsdale, or weaknees walkthru) I'm not exactly sure to do with an .mfs file.

    Any hint on the command to restore it if i hook the new drive up as HDA?? i'll be using the weaknees lba48 upgrade cd.
    thanks!

    .bak and .mfs are the same thing. You should be able to follow the Weaknees "Restore from Backup to one drive" instructions.

    There's no need to run the sd-h400_unlock utility with this image, so skip that step if it is in their instructions. The capacity lock is already removed in this image.

    Folks, I too, am looking for a SD-DVR 40 image that I can put on a broken Hughes box that will be authorized for normal service, no hacks. I've been on Emule for three days, but haven't been able to get a complete download. Perhaps some kind soul here can help?

    Thanks! Mike Nassour

    Never mind, folks. Emule came through. I don't post a lot here, but the advice is worth its weight in HDVR250s ! <grin>
