WDTVhack password recovery tool   

Postby jaromil » Tue Sep 14, 2010 1:58 am

re all,

WDTVhack is a little app.bin to use in your USB in case you have lost/forgot the passwords of your WDTV

Download from this link http://files.dyne.org/hdsync/tools/wdtvhack.app.bin


drop this little file as usual, in a usb key (no matter how formatted, FAT or EXT), plug it into the box and you'll have the passwords reset:



    ssh/login account is reset to user:root and pass:hackme
    web interface login is reset to default user:wdlxtv pass:hackme


It is also in the app repository, you can install it via WAM (Webend Addons Manager)

dedicated to all those who have too many passwords to remember.... :ugeek:

Nice work jaromil.

Strange to say about your hard work, but hopefully I never need to use it.

Very nice tool. Works really good. I had a problem with corrupted password/shadow files in /conf ... used your tool and all was well.

Many thanks!!!

Place wdtvhack.app.bin in the root of your usb drive and reboot. Do NOT rename the file, it won't work then!
Reboot means really reboot do not just press power off/on on remote!

no need for a special filesystem, anything like FAT or EXT will work.

just drop the app.bin in the root of the usb stick filesystem, as with any other application...

it won't do anything visible unless you login via ssh and telnet, then you'll see that the password is changed to 'hackme'

that's it :geek:
