    If killinitrd was ever to work for the 540's, would that mean that replacing the PROM would no longer be necessary?

    right, but don't hold your breath

    seems like weakknees has (or had) refurb dsr7k (series 2.0 dtivo) for like $35. if you're not up for a prom mod but want to play now then your best bet is probably a deal like that

    $5 CD from PTV

    Does the $5 CD from PTV include the kernels? I have a 6.2 DTivo that killhdinitrd will not work on the stock kernel. I need to find the coveted 3.1.5 Linux 2.4.20 kernel and my favorite p2p apps are coming up with nada.

    Anyone know a live site that has the 3.1.5 kernel available? I have seen several posts in my searches but not supprisingly most of them are dead.

    (1) Yes, the $5 PTV CD is both LBA-48 aware (for hard drives over 137GB) and has various series-1 (PPC) and series-2 (MIPS) killhdinitrd kernels. Note that they gzip compressed them for some unknown reason.

    (2) I'm sure its "out there" on the 'Net somewhere, but I don't know of any specifics.

    I believe the kernels are open-source anyway, maybe it is time for someone to just stick them in the Files section.

    Where are the kernels on the CD? I saw the the help section that you can view before booting that they are supposed to be in a directory called S2_kernels but

    find / | grep S2

    Yeilds nothing.

    find / | grep gz
    /bin/gzip

    Did I just get suckered out of $5?

    No, you did not get suckered.

    Please refer to this thread:

    http://forum.ptvupgrade.com/showthread.php?t=1705

    and also keep in mind that this is the killhdinitrd support thread.

    Red face Thanks!

    I have to admit that after many hours of reading pages upon pages of threads that frustration got the better of me.

    Like the user in the thread you linked to it was not intuitive to me that after booting from the CD that I would then have to mount it to gain access to the additional content. Could be a side affect of the above mentioned emotion.

    Again thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

    My apologies for stomping on the thread topic. I'll go away and finish this crow. Pass the salt please....

    Cool. Didn't mean to sound harsh, just wanted to ensure things got back on track... Cheers and thx for the $5. :-)

    killhdinitrd 0.9.3 on 7.2.2

    I'm trying to get the tivo to boot without restoring it's original state. It seems that killhdinitrd ver 0.9.3 has been upgraded to work on kernel 2.4.20 with timestamp 'Tue Feb 14 20:55:02 PST 2006'. My kernel appears to have a timestamp 'Tue Feb 14 20:57:16 PST 2006'. killhdinitrd returns 'no exploit found for this kernel'.

    Am I doing something stupid or do I have a different kernel?

    TIA,
    George

    Check the readme. Do you have the proper kernel? It only supports the kernel from 7.2.2-oth-K1. The readme also gives the MD5 signature and the complete build version.

    Sorry I was not more specific. This is the current kernel info:

    7.2.2-oth-K1
    Linux version 2.4.20 (build@buildmaster50)
    (gcc version 3.3.4) #1 Tue Feb 14 20:57:16 PST 2006

    I don't have a binary on the boot CD to generate an MD5 checksum, but I will try to get it. I suspect the checksum will be different than the one published for ver 0.9.3.

    Is it possible that since I have a HUMAX DRT400 with DVD (SN 595...) the kernel is slightly different from the ones that killhdinitrd works with?

    I'm pretty sure that the DVD units up to this point are all Series2.5. Those need the PROM mod to do any hacking.

    Possible? I'd say likely given that the timestamp isn't even the same. Might be compatible, but the killhdinitrd isn't going to see it that way if it's different (like the timestamp is probably enough of a difference).

    Does killhdinitrd 0.9.3 fix DHCP problem in 7.2.2

    My S2 SA 240 series unit just got the upgrade to 7.2.2 last night. The current version is 7.2.2-oth.01-2-140 not the K1 version, so I'm assuming I cannot use version 0.9.3 to killhdinitrd my kernel directly.

    I believe my simplest option right now is to copy in a killhdinitrd'd 3.1.5 kernel which I have. From what I've read, the 3.1.5 kernel will still be compatible with my 7.2.2 kernel, but it would mean that DHCP will not work correctly on my Tivo unit. Are there any other side effects?

    My question is if you apply killhdinitrd 0.9.3 to the correct 7.2.2 kernel, will DHCP be ok?

    Thanks for any advice anyone has....

    I just recieved 7.2.2-oth.01-2-130 the other day on my series 130 unit. No luck so far with killhdinitrd 0.9.3 or the 3.1.5 kernel that was on the PTV LBA48 cd. Maybe I messed up something in the process.

    Did 3.1.5 work for you?
