Homebrew Database (overview of all modifications)

(1/6) > >>

reaverxai:
With an expanding number of the modification files available for use with the WDTV, I thought I would start to try and index them, so here you are, a WDTV Custom Firmware Database, which I will try to keep as up to date as possible.

Note: I do not make any claims that these are completely up to date. I will try to keep this as updated as possible, but checking the source site is the easiest way to make sure you have the latest version.

WDTV Firmware Database

Ext3-boot
Version: 0.9.2
Download | Web

--- Quote ---ext3-boot writes a modified boot manager to the WDTV. During bootup this will read the main (custom) firmware file from a connected memory stick or disk. As such, it doesn't have the memory limitations of permanently flashed firmware, and contains more add-on packages included in the release. You need to keep the storage with the firmware file permanently inserted in the WDTV though (to be confirmed - at least you need it inserted on every reboot). Most upgrades can be done by updating the firmware file on external storage, without needing to re-flash the WDTV.

DVDMOD
Version: 0.5.3.2
Download | Web

--- Quote ---DVDMOD is a custom unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WDTV, which adds optical drive (cd/dvd drives) and extra filesystem support. I have remixed all official firmware releases and added cdrom support via cd-manager. Yes, this means you can boot with a usb dvd drive connected and play from it on your WDTV now.

WDLXTV
Version: 0.5.3.2
Download | Web

--- Quote ---WDLXTV is a souped up unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WDTV. It is based off of the 1.02.07 firmware, but with many extra features. Similar to my dvdmod firmware, this is a permanent flash, just like an official upgrade. This firmware is an option for those whos hardware is stable with Zoranders ext3-boot, or those who don’t do much firmware programming to take advantage of ext3-boot.

If you have anything you think needs to be added/changed, go ahead and share.

airibis:
Thanks for this post, really helped explain alot


I am still torn between Ext3-boot and WDLXTV (what would you recommend)

I would like to run the LaurentG app, and the shoutcast app seems pretty cool too; would both apps work on either firmware?

gsf600y:
Brilliant post, just what was needed.  Needs to be a sticky

realtebo:
Excellent work. Stick it !

just a note: weecommand is in version 'Prototype 3'

an other suggestion: It will be more usefull if you divide 'stand-alone' application, from 'dipendent' application: for example, like weather/rss addon which is depending from any webserver, and  appletrailerfs and weecommand, depending from event-osd

Also is mandatory to warn users for mod firmware compatiblity: LaurentG osd mod work only with wldxtv, weccomand works only with ext3

juliojs:
Yes, this post needs a sticky.

Please update this: the osdMod firmware version is on v0.3, this is correct, but osdMod app.bin version is on v0.4.0.5. It has the features of v0.3 and allows to view also the movie data before playing.
The osdMod web is: http://wdtv-osdmod.blogspot.com/
