    Copying to floppy should work.
    But first try mounting the DOS HD like this:
    mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/dos

    The rc.sysinit should have the bash statement so no need to modify.
    Just connect cable to pc, start DTiVo and Tera Term Pro, set terminal to 25 lines and 57600 baud.

    I'm most interesting in how the CCC TiVo image takes care of the locals. Does it use mvchannels.tcl, or, did they write their own modification to receive locals?

    is anyone going to make new 25xtreme images with the ccc enhancements? I'm soo happy people figured out what ccc did and copied it. Teaches him for taking 25xtreme and making money off ripping people off.

    They ripped off the selectlocals script written by Juppers and posted first on this forum. Look at the ccc hack file called setlocals. It's run from TClient-lib.itcl right after fixsub is run on a Daily Call.

    yngdiego What have you seen with ccc that you can't get with v2.5Xtreme and a couple of additional hacks?

    hjscm You always need to make a mount point with mkdir like this:
    mkdir /mnt/dos

    CCC Image

    You can reach the pash prompt by setting hyperterminal to these settings:

    57600
    None
    8
    1
    No Flow Control

    and add this to the bottom of your rc.sysinit for bash prompt

    /bin/bash < /dev/ttyS3 >& /dev/ttyS3 &

    CCC locals

    They use a script call setlocals.tcl. I will post the script soon.

    jquest i tried to add that line but it said rc.sysinit file does not exist. I hooked up the drive to my pc but i can't copy rcsysini to it for some reason. my hda drive is FAT. i tried what zap said to mount the fat drive but it couldn't mount the drive. i tried to copy from a floppy and it did something but i don't know what cause i don't know how to do a DIR like in dos on linux. this is driving my nutz

    Using image

    Step 1 restore image

    Step 2 edit out the serial number and insert your serial number
    if it says XXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX input your serial number and replace the XXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX with your serial number with
    no hypens.

    Step 3 Add bash prompt line

    /bin/bash < /dev/ttyS3 >& /dev/ttyS3 &

    Step 4 make sure you
    chmod +x rc.sysinit
    chattr +i rc.sysinit

    Step 5 reboot

    THANK YOU ----> CCC <----

    I would like everyone to know that CCC modification to the DirectTV TiVo unit, from what I can tell so far, was easy to
    copy and use on brand new (unmodified) TiVo unit.

    If you would like to puchase a unit from CCC and give a image
    to all of your friends here is what you need to do.

    0. You must upgrade your prom to version 2.5 first. I used
    the 25extreme image. I loaded it to my original harddrive and
    it does all the modifications for you. THANKS TO THE AUTHOR
    You can also update it manually.

    1. Backup your CCC modified harddrive with MFSTOOL. Compress with -9 it will be a 108mb file.

    2. Restore your backup to your TiVo Drive or another 40+ gb Hard
    drive. I used a WD 40gb 7200 Drive.

    3. Attach your restored drive to a computer running linux. I used
    a bootable CD you can find on any TiVo download site or
    use dylans bootdisk.

    4. mount partition 4 of the restored drive
    Go to /4/etc/rc.d
    edit the rc.sysinit file and replace the serial number with
    (hint-- you must ---> chattr -i rc.sysinit <--- before you can
    modify it) the serial number of the TiVo Unit you are installing
    the restored drive into.


    5. Install the restored drive into your TiVo Unit

    6. Boot your TiVo Unit

    7. Go into the System Setup and select the option to delete
    everything and start over. This step will reboot your TiVo
    unit and rebuild the data. This process takes about an hour
    and you can follow the directions that CCC puts in splash
    screens.

    8. Make the TiVo Unit make the call once. (do not connect phone
    Line. Then select the Sales and Maketing program. It will
    make a second call and then it will say it Succeeded even
    though will say it Succeeded even though no phone
    line is connect. -->these directions are on a splash screen
    during the rebuild process. Write them down! Makes it
    easier!

    9. If you have done everything listed above it should list your
    your serial number as the TiVo Subscription and that you have
    lifetime access.

    10. Settings for bash are 57600,8,n,1,No flow control

    I was able to get a copy from a buddy. Maybe if he is nice he might let me post the image sometime. But as for now, it's a no
    go.

    I think that CCC should not be charging $300 so that you can steal lifetime service which only cost $250 anyways. I also understand that people using hacked access cards do not want
    tivo to report what they are doing so the $300 option isn't so bad.
    So, inpart, it's TiVo's fault for giving away data. If they didn't report CCC would not have any business. Also, it is very easy it
    access DTV's information due to the help of many for free. It should be that way with TiVo and people should not charge a fee.
    I am almost tempted to purchase one myself so that it can be free
    to everyone on this and any other forum.

    This is not a complete guide but enough information if you know
    how to use linux and can read other posts on this site to complete this project. Most people do not even attempt to research this forum with the search command. They just ask!

    I hope that the information included in this post helps you. Had I had this information it would have taken me less than a day to
    copy and modify my TiVo with CCC modifications. I will also post any other information I find about this modification, so stay tuned.

    Thanks everyone who helped me figure out what I was doing. I used this forum as a complete guide. Thank you for the tip on the 57,600 that helped me to get my bash prompt!!!!!

    It was loads of fun and has sparked my interested in hacking TiVo. I don't even watch 3 hours of TV a week but it's fun to
    take apart things and play.


    Thanks Again and Good Luck!

    Thanks JQ for the howto and for sharing the info about the ccc hack. I am still trying to figure out if the ccc hack has anything more than what Xtreme will give plus a few others hacks discussed here like adding locals and cleaning the logs out.

    There are a couple of ccc claimed features that I am not sure about.
    'Hardware Protection! Your DirecTivo is modified so that no unwanted hardware or software upgrades are sent to your system without your knowledge. Both software upgrades and eeprom updates are disabled.'
    Has anyone verified this claim and if so how is this done? Are they using special code on the prom?

    'System Stability! Our 2.5 software is "self-maintaining". It will automatically perform normal system maintenance (such as database indexing and purging of old temporary files) when needed to insure that your system keeps running at its peak performance level.'
    Is this hype or is there more maintenance we should be doing in addition to cleaning off the logs?

    Also with the ccc hack are you seeing the showcases and magazine? I think we have a big problem on the horizon with the unactivated showcases/mags being downloaded and filling up the database. I wonder if the ccc hack has something to solve this since they claim no unwanted downloads in the quote above? Chipster is working on this problem and his efforts are appreciated ===> http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/sh...2225#post22225
