    4.x+RID - support

    This is the support thread for the sw package posted in the 4.x+RID - files and information thread.

    that thread is files + information only and is locked

    this is the thread for setup & support questions

    notes:

    uma6fix.o autodetects uma4/uma6 to only load when needed, and the kernel supports 2.0 series S2's with the exception of the HDtivo and dvd-combo sa's. this means the same framework config will boot 4.x sw properly on most S2 models


    gateway & dns addresses of 0.0.0.0 work here to prevent mothership dialouts without hindering mrv transfers (4.0.1b)


    please setup, install & verify operation with factory usb drivers BEFORE switching to Jamie's optomized backports. his tweaked kernel will NOT work - feel free to try it, but start another thread for that discussion


    make SURE you have a good 4.x image

    if it's from p2p or you don't have backgrounds DON'T POST IN THIS THREAD! - you have some reading to do


    the init-framework sets the default path to include ./ - / and /utils. if you install alphawolf's all-in-one package to /utils you're good to go in no time


    edit: just started with nothing but the referenced files and a bash serial cable - took about 20 mins to verify ALL the steps & get to guided setup

    we don't really need hand holding guides for this, but if you want to write your own "noob's guide to uma6fix" please attach it to your post as a text file or start a new thread - that'll do wonders to reduce thre clutter

    Scrabled TY extraction/Insertion.

    One of the RID units I will be installing 4.0 on is completely unhacked. If I hack it enough to pull encrypted TYs off of it, update it to 4.0, and reinsert them (to the same tivo) I can still play them on that tivo. correct?

    I undertsand I wont be able to use them with MRV, unless I unscramble them.

    yep. you'll need to extract as tmf and use

    /var/mfs_ftp/scramble_utils/get_DC_key.tcl

    to backup the DiskConfig key in 3.x, then use

    /var/mfs_ftp/scramble_utils/set_DC_key.tcl

    to restore the DiskConfig key in 4.x

    Since the InstantCake software is distributed with a GPL license and is copyable, can someone make it available somewhere for download so we don't have to pay another $20.

    actually it's not, the gpl license only covers the kernel, os, glibc and so forth. there's quite a bit in an image like the pvr sw, background animation and sounds that tivo reserves copyright to - that's how they're able to take down anyone hosting an image

    unfortunatly we've allready had that discussion with tivo legal - thus was the image begging thread born. please confine all image sharing discussion to pm

    ---

    tivo is has endorsed PTV upgrade's business model (by not shutting them down) you can get a good 4.x image there

    As I stated 2 posts above, JJ, this image is fine and working with all backgrounds in my DSR7000. So your statement does NOT apply to me!!!

    regarding the thread topic: 4x+RID support


    loading killhdinitrd -> monte -> lba48 kernel + uma6fix + brcmdrv-rb.o and dssapp are all that's required to run 4.x on rid

    the init-framework illustrates the required load order and is intended to reduce confusion & provide an example config plus lay the groundwork for some groovy upcoming utils


    once your uma6 box boots into tivo central you've got the same issues as any 4.x dtivo config which are basically

    avoid setup call & dailin - fakecall40.tcl

    configure networking - use the setup screen

    enable HMO - superpatch4all

    upgrade to faster usb drivers - see jamie's usb backport threads

    install <whatever> utils you absolutely can't live without - rtfm


    lets try to limit discussion here to uma6fix issues - if someone asks an off topic question the best reply is to quote the question being answered and provide a link to the apropriate thread with a short explaination of why it's relevant


    lets play nice, the trolls are agravation enough

    Where'd you get the image from?

    And by the way, the statement DOES apply to you since you don't have backgrounds and Riley said DON'T POST IN THIS THREAD -- I don't think he specified whether or not you should post in this thread if it works on your DSR7000

    PM'd you with the image info.

    Riley said 'make sure you have a good image'..... I did that
    And I was not posting to ask for help regarding the loss of a background, only to say that it was the only thing not working after installing 4.x on my RID TiVo

    Shall we call it a draw ??

    gimme a sec to get caught up here...

    TiVo approves of PTV_upgrade's business model & practices or they wouldn't still be in business.

    TiVo does NOT want mere mortals hosting images via ftp or p2p, or extended public discussion on where to find that sort of thing.

    SO

    I'm going to build a couple of "micro" images and see if I can get those over to ptv upgrade - a legit distribution channel

    Okay, time for my stupid question of the day.

    After doing everything in the release thread, I have a working, mostly-virgin install of 4.x. I'll then need to run the nocso patch, load telnet, ftp, tserver, TWP, etc, correct? Are there ANY hacks/patches that are installed other than what's required to just get 4.x to boot?

    the init framework and an lba48 kernel

    networking will work in that sense that the tivo "firewall" is disabled. it's up to you to install bash, telnet, ftp, tivoweb & whatever else you want
