Gen2 is WDTV 2-nd generation device (WDBABG) on SMP8655. Same as WD TV Live except networking.
Last official firmware for gen2 devices is 1.01.77 (dated 12/2009).

b-rad's wdxltv goes only for Gen1 and Live devices...

...actually the goal is to get UDF (ext.DVD-ROM) support to gen-2 :)

I have been using this for a while and it works great, I am now curious if there is an easy way to add USB hub support and / or optical drive support.

Thanks.

Howdy all.  Is this the latest root.bin out there for Zorander's ext3-boot 0.9.2 firmware?  I haven't upgraded for a long time.  Thanks.  Or have people pretty much moved on to b-rad's firmware for the Gen 1?

Good morning to you all.

I would like to know if it's possible to make de WDBABF0000NBK, to autoplay any media inserted.  For example: the WDBABF0000NBK has a USB PEN with a moovie and when i turn on the POWER it will search automaticly for media contents and starts to play without remote control or any other action.

Thanks in advance for any help possible.

My best regards;
A.Rocha ... from Portugal

This root.bin is quite old now.  There is a new one based on 1.05.04 which you can download via the wiki
http://wiki.wdlxtv.com/Main_Page#Download
If you really want the older 1.03.*, it is also there for download.

Note a beta version of 1.05.04 is in progress with WDTVExt 0.5.1.5 which will give you the very best of both worlds, WDTVExt plugins on the latest stable firmware release.  (for the live only)

Thank you for your quick response, however WDLXTV is not the answer. I am currently using ext3-boot-0.9.2 with an extracted root.bin based on the 1.02.10 firmware for the Gen1 WDTV. I am looking for the fixed root.bin based on the 1.03.01 firmware like the OP released.

Does anyone have a copy of the 1.03.01.fix.zip file released by the OP?

I guess I miss-understood...sorry.  However, if it is the fix you are after the link is still valid.  It is a Rapidshare link usable by anyone, even if you don't have a rapidshare account.

Well, there is my problem. When I click on the link, a download does not automatically start and the link to start the download is hardly intuitive. The link is in the middle of what looks like an ad to buy RapidPro. I am so attuned to ignoring ads that I did not hover my mouse over the download button to view the underlying link. Hey, I learned something today!

Thanks RavRob.

to use this root.bin, what i must to have in the wdtv ?
an original firmware 1.03.x ? or a ext3-boot cfw ?

if the answer is ext3-boot, must i install before the ofw 1.02.08 ?

i ask all this because i have the unit flashed with the lastest wdlxtv firmware.

So then what i must to perform to test this root.bin ?


thx in advance

If you are already flashed with the home brew you should be good to go.  Just put the root.bin on a usb stick and place in the WDTV and reboot.  Should work. 

Note I don't have one of these and don't use the root.bin but it is the normal way to use such a bin.
