    8.1-01-2-264 not allowing me to install killed kernel

    Yesterday I manually upgraded my SD-H400 to 8.1 from 7.3.1

    I tried my best not to make any mistakes in transfering any hack over to the new parttion (from old root hda4 to new root hda7)
    also transfered boot from 3 to 6 (also tried reinstalling from PTV CD) (kept a backup of the original 8.1 boot)
    killed iptables
    copied rc.sysinit.author
    copied tnlited (kept a backup of the original that came doen with 8.1)
    copied ftpd
    bootpage was perfect hda7 including upgradesoftware=false

    tried to boot and the system would went into reboot loop.

    finally put the drive into PC reverted all changes on hda7 to match that of the original 8.1 root.

    Booted perfect. Then I just tried to write the killed kernel without any more changes. and it went agin into reboot loop. I don't understand what happened.

    is the 7.2.2-oth-k1 killed kernel not compatible with 8.1 now?

    Can someone help me install all my hacks again (telnet/ftp/superpatch67/tserver/mfsftp/tivoweb)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Might want to read the other 8.1 threads. My bet is you have this problem.

    Thanks Jamie.

    Will try and report back. Looks like I am on track to getting it fixed only part is I have to figure out how to get the backport drivers as I never did that before.

    I disconnected my Linksys USB200M Ver 2 adapter when using the killed kernel and the tivo did not go into a reboot loop.

    I installed the backported drivers 2.4.27 and that solved the problem.

    Also got a speed boost. I get effective speed of 2.6MB/s (wired) and 1.94MB/s (wireless) while downloading using TyTools/tserver.

    You could upload it to sendspace or mediafire (no registration required for either) and post the link they give you after it's uploaded.
