Running Directv updates will wipe out all of your hacks. Accordingly the commands that allow for software upgrades are removed or commented out.
You can edit rc.sysinit file to allow your machine to upgrade BUT you'll lose all of your hacks.
You can either run a hack free machine, upgrade and manually hack, keep running 3.1.0 or wait for someone to come up with an automatic upgrade procedure.
