I double-checked that, and downloaded it again, just to be safe. My device is a Live one (not Plus). I've downloaded this release:http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=6104

You may also try to re-format the usb drive or use a different one.
I downloaded the zip again. MD5 tells me that it's exactly the same I used yesterday. Just to be safe, uncompressed the zip in my laptop, md5sum'ed the root.bin, transferred it via scp, and md5sum'ed again in the disk attached to the WDTV. Everything seems fine.
Still no luck, the device won't boot as long as it finds a root.bin.
The filesystem is clean. Formatting the drive is out of the equation: I have almost 1TB of data there, transferring data via USB is very slow, I don't feel like starting again from a backup. And again, it's a perfectly normal ext3 filesystem, completely clean.
Any other idea? As this is a ext3 filestem I wonder: Should the root.bin file have to have any special attributes/ownership/permissions assigned?
