    Tivo model: TCD240040
    PTVUpgrade LBA48 boot CD
    250gb hard drive installed and tested as working

    I get the "Welcome" screen then the "Almost there" then reboot, repeat.

    This is what I've done.

    I restored an image to a 250gb HDD.
    Install and boot tivo, setup and run for a week with no problems.

    Just now I performed Scanmans hack on my TCD240.
    Bootpage told me that hda7 was root so I used that in my commands.

    Tivo connected as hda, CD-Rom setup as hdc and WinMe hard drive setup as hdd with vmlinux.px & tivotools on it.

    Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

    Couple of things:

    1. Error in transferring killhdinitrd kernel
    2. Didn't properly fix iptables
    3. Didn't copy backport drivers

    More exact info on what you did would help, as well as console boot log.

    So the backport drivers could cause this even if I don't plug in the USB cable?

    I'll pull the drive this evening and check the iptable and add the backport drivers.

    Scanman, I really appreciate your help on this and I'll post my results tonight.

    No, if the USB NIC is not plugged in, it should boot properly. Really try to get a console boot log. If you are not set up for serial (I won't preach the importance of it ) you can get it from the 9th partition (/var) while the tivo drive is in your PC - it's the file named kernel in the /log directory. Post it as an attachment.

    It certainly looks like an iptables error. How did you fix iptables? One way to fix your /sbin/iptables is to create a file that looks like:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    exit 0
    Make sure it is chmod 755

    The other thing you could do is restore your original iptables and place
    Code:
    iptables -F
    right after your path statement in rc.sysinit.author. In that case, you don't need the "exit 0" fix above.

    I added the iptables -F to my rc.sysinit.author file. I'll check it to make sure it is after the path statement.

    Is one way better than the other?

    Personally, I think the iptables -F method is easier to maintain. If it remains in your rc.sysinit.author file, that's one less thing to worry about when manually upgrading the system software.

    Keeping a working iptables binary also allows one to try more advanced network filtering features, if you wish.

    I had the iptables -F in my rc.sysinit.author file but I still got the reboot.
    I deleted the iptables -F entry and created the empty iptables file from scanmans guide and I'm not rebooting anymore unless I plug in my USB NIC.

    I'm researching the backport drivers now to fix that.
    Do I have to compile my own drivers or are they already created?

    Thanks Scanman for all your help.

    You can compile your own if you want to. Otherwise jamie compiled them a while back. They work great. Files here : http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/sh...211#post279211

    I'm using a Linksys USB100TX wired NIC.

    To get it to work I replaced everything in /platform/lib/modules with the backport modules.
    I replaced pegasus.o, usbnet.o & usb-storage.o in /lib/modules.

    Now I'm connected through the network.

    The serial console output is a big help. Attach it to your post.

    I am using the zipper to install hacks, it all goes fine till I get this message

    copying hacked kernel to tivo drive...
    cd: /cdrom/s2_kernels/3.1.5/vmlinux.px.gz: no such file or directory
    hacked kernel not found on zipper cd in /s2_kernels/3.1.5/.
    make sure you have the latest lba48 cd with killhdintrd kernels.
    aborting
    PTVupgrade /cdrom

    For starters, you didn't follow the directions that beseech you not to ask Zipper questions here, you haven't searched for answers on your problem, and you've hijacked a thread that has nothing to do with your issue. DVRupgrade has it's own forums for PTVnet support.
