|Tivo, Replay or Sony how to program it yourself (modified 0 times) ||machack|
|I was messing with my Tivo today, made a total copy of the main hard drive so I could mess with it.|
My copy drive boots OK, I know better than to let it call in, they use the serial number on the drive as part of the ID.
I looked into some of the sectors and tried to modify some text I saw for menus and IT WORKED! Just changed some letters.
The next logical step is to modify a routine, like when you go to "phone setup", I would have it call my own routine I will overwrite their routine I don't need.
This is fun! The only problem I see is how to make it boot Linux from a total boot, I don't know what their boot ROM wants to see. I am thinking of putting Lilo binary right after their boot code starts up on the HD or in that "phone setup" area and point it to another HD I have already formatted for Linux on the slave IDE.
If that works, I would make a old small drive my boot drive and the slave a 40gb drive!
Anyone know what video drivers I need to have?
