WDTV Gen2 Firmware help, please.   

Postby lloyde1 » Tue Sep 17, 2013 4:57 am

I know you are going to hate me for asking this but how do I install WDLXTV on a Gen 2 running on stock firmware "WDTV_1.01.77". I have spent hours/days reading web-sites, watching YouTube and even purchased a new USB Stick. I know this is not a complicated process, I have successfully modified my: wii, PS3, XBOX 360, NDS, PSP, SATNAV and more in the past but it’s just not happening for me. Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? :cry: :cry:

I place the three files:
wdtvhd.bin
wdtvhd.fff
wdtvhd.ver

On the root of my memory card, go to settings and nothing about an update is displayed. I have tried renaming wdtvhd.bin to "1.20.04_WDLXTV_G2-0.4.7.3" and "1.20.04.WDLXTV-0.4.7.3". Wherever I look people only seem to mention renaming the LIVE OR LIVE PLUS files, even the wiki and readme, and I am unsure if I am renaming the file correctly or making another noob mistake. :( :oops:

Thank you in advance for any help.

i updated my WDTV Gen2 some weeks ago without any problems. so i can only guess.

do not change the name of the file. open wdtvlive.ver and change VERSION to higher release

------wdtvlive.ver------
VERSION='1.01.77.WDLXTV_G2-0.4.7.3'
LOCATION='wdtvhd.bin'

probably you should change to

VERSION='1.20.04.WDLXTV_G2-0.4.7.3'
LOCATION='wdtvhd.bin'

is your usb stick formated with FAT?


edit:
where did you get the "G2-0.4.7.3" firmware. the link from the forum is dead. i only found G2-0.4.5.3 here.

Thank you for your help danske. I am such a tool, of course you edit the file and not the file name.

I was surprised that of all the people that have read this “only one person knew how to edit the file”.

I got my file from Filecrop http://www.filecrop.com/ and a link for G2-0.4.5.3 http://www.filecrop.com/62953476/index.html also the have a number of WDTV file here.http://www.filecrop.com/search.php?w=wdtv&size_i=0&size_f=100000000&engine_r=1&engine_d=1&engine_h=1&engine_e=1&engine_m=1&engine_4=1

Thanks again danske your help was much appreciated
