Here's the patch and steps to disable scrambling.
Currently it's only tested to work on upgrading a 2.0 install to 2.5.
1) Get Tivolater25 from here. Read about it and make sure you understand what is going on.
2) Download the attached zip file.
3) Transfer the contents of the zip file to your tivo along with Tivolater. I suggest /var/update. You should end up with Update.tcl, Update.cpio.gz, noscramble.cpio, and noscramble.sh.
4) Starting out in the same directory as the files (cd /var/update) issue the following command:
After a while you should be upgraded to 2.5 and be scramble free.Code:bash noscramble.sh
Keep in mind, however, that a subsequent update to the Tivo software may render your streams unreadable or, possibly, your Tivo unusable. Make backups!
Now. If you already have 2.5 and don't want to nuke it for 2.0 then you can try the following. Now keep in mind that this probably won't work and you'll probably lose everything. Back things up. Any streams you currently have will become unreadable but new streams will be unscrambled. At a later date tools may become available that will allow you do descramble your scrambled streams.
WARNING: The following may render your Tivo unconscious. Make a backup! This is untested and may result in problems. Any existing streams on your Tivo WILL be rendered unreadable.
Download the attached file and transfer noscramble.cpio to your tivo into the /var directory.
Run the following commands:
NOTE: the bootpage command is surrounded by back-quotes, the character on the same key as the tilde (~) on standard U.S. keyboards (usually left of the '1!' key). So, not ' or " but `. This is important.Code:cd /var mkdir foo cd foo cpio -idm < ../noscramble.cpio gzip -d Hacked_utils-2.5-01-1.cpio.gz rm -rf /var/utils/* jpm -p Hacked_utils-2.5-01-1.cpio cd .. rm -rf foo /var/utils/tweakkernel /dev/hda`bootpage -b /dev/hda` reboot
