    What did I do wrong? - trying simple commands

    I have been successfully using my PTVUpgrade drive, added TivoWebPlus and TyTools, and was attempting to change the encryption flag per instructions on DealTime. I completed the following sequence and know that I did not make a mistake. When I rebooted, I waited 10 minutes for it to get through the DirecTV screen that says "almost finished" and then rebooted (power off/on) and tried it a second time, this time waiting for 20 minutes. It never got to the satellite acquisition stage. DTV is sending me a replacement unit with and 80 hour drive, but there goes my network access. I am assuming that I should send the PTVUpgrade drive back in for a reload. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Do the following for this patch: (FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS VERY CAREFULLY)

    Make sure your root partition is writable. e.g.
    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /

    Make a backup copy of /tvbin/tivoapp e.g.
    Code:
    cp /tvbin/tivoapp /tvbin/tivoapp.orig

    Do this number:
    Code:
    cd /tvbin
    mv tivoapp tivoapp.tmp
    cp tivoapp.tmp tivoapp
    chmod 755 tivoapp

    If you are an S2 user with Software Version 6.2, type this command:
    Code:
    echo -ne "\x3C\x02\x00\x00" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=10705308

    For you readonly root types:
    Code:
    mount -o remount,ro /

    Then:
    Code:
    reboot

    After (not before) the reboot, you can delete the /tvbin/tivoapp.tmp file to free up space on your rootfs.

    If you are an S2 user, your next stop is here.

    cp the original tivoapp back and try booting. If it doesn't work, you have a different problem. If it does work, at least you know that your whole system isn't FUBAR.

    Copying back original tivoapp...

    I cannot see it on the network. It never gets that far in the boot cycle. Are you suggesting that I put the drive in a PC and do the copy there?

    Yes, exactly.

    OK. Thanks. These forums really do work. Wish I could return the favor.
