With the increasing difficulty in finding backups these days, not to mention what kind of condition they are going to be in when you get them, hacked, not hacked, if the FS has been messed with, etc. it would be extremely handy for people to be able to create their own. Personally, I won't use a random image on emule or whatever. I don't know who it came from or what they've done to it. Now if it were alldeadhomiez tiny tivo 4.x or whatever, someone I would trust, I may use an image. But that puts the trusted party at liability for distributing tivo images.Originally Posted by alldeadhomiez
Then you get into things like hardware revision. For anything that calls home, you would really need to have that part right. I think those are all good reasons why someone may need to create their own.
