Well, you should try it again. Have you read the last few posts?

Tell me what I'm missing. You seem to be getting frustrated and it's just because things are new to you. Most people aren't having these problems.
Here's what I think I read of your situation. Correct me if I'm wrong.
You had a HDTivo with 3.1.1c in /dev/hdx6 (you just didn't know it)
You waited on the advice of others until you called up tivo
-- I think in your case this was good advice because if you'd hacked it first you would probably be confused even more trying to manually switch partition pairs.
You got an update to 3.1.1d and started trying to hack your tivo with killhdinitrd. Your new kernel, which you found to be in /dev/hdx3 is not supported by killhdinitrd.
The solution is to run killhdinitrd on /dev/hdx6 as was stated
Then dd your new 3.1.1d kernel out to a file for backup reasons.
Then dd /dev/hdx6 over /dev/hdx3
Add your hacks and you're done.
The linked thread that you said you read says the same thing. If you still can't get it post more information, commands etc. it could be a simple mistake.
