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.
mount -o remount,rw /

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

Do this number:
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:
echo -ne "\x3C\x02\x00\x00" | dd conv=notrunc of=tivoapp bs=1 seek=10705308

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


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.
