Hi, All you have to do is download it (which you already have probably done), unpack it and copy the contents onto the root drive of your usb drive then unplug the WDTV power cord.. insert the usb drive with the copied contents into the wdtv and plug the cord back in.

It will automatically boot up and will detect the contents of the usb drive and then will tell you it has found firmware.

cheers.

extracting it probably put all the files in a folder.. make the usb drive has files in the root

wdtvlive.ver
wdtvlive.bin

The file above need to be on the root of the USB drive, not a folder.

You may have to try a different brand of flash drive, it seems to not work with all of them.

That is the reason, you upgraded to the official new version from wd. That version is 'newer' than b-rad's 0.3.3.1 which is bases off of 1.01.11 and you have 1.01.17. You will need to downgrade to 1.01.11 first. Technically you should just be able to edit the wdtvlive.ver file and replace 1.01.17 with 1.01.19 . Plug the stick back in and it should find the firmware
