1. what is stock.osd.bin?


in the first post that's what you're creating an editable stock.osd.bin

oakeyt wrote:2. Are you saying that I can use the instructions at the start of this thread to change the existing cramfs file to EXT3? - apologies for the 'un-educated' questions but I'm new to all this linux stuff! :(

what I am saying, you can't convert the file, you just create a new file instead, the instructions will create the new new file and put the contents of the stock osd inside it

oakeyt wrote:3. What is the command 'svn' as I' getting a message saying this doessn't exist?

read closely, instructions, say dev_tools.app.bin is required
svn = subversion repository
you'll connect and download the needed files from svn

yes that would work, or you change the path's in the first post to download current version of psychothc

oakeyt wrote:For info - I'm using psychothc_mod_6_5_3-svn62.osd.bin and want to change the colours of the 'Options' bar from red to a different colour. This is a cramfs file as opposed to the standard psychothc_mod_6_5_3.osd.bin - I'm using the 'svn62' version because I want MediaMark to work and it doesn't in the original version.

Is anyone using an EXT3 filesystem version of psychothc_mod_6_5_3-svn62.osd.bin ?

If the downloadable image from the thread is cramfs, then I doubt anybody has an ext3 version, but you can easily create one

Would anyone know why the link to "devtools.app.bin" would not be appearing in the "add-ons manager" in the WEC?

What link are you looking for? A link for downloading?
To install it select a drive to install to under Status dropdown and select enabled checkbox, then go to the bottom of the page and click Apply Changes.

To directly download the app to your computer, go to
