WDLXTV – enhanced WDTV firmware 0.3

WDLXTV is a souped up unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WDTV. It is based off of the 1.01.02 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. Once again, ext3-boot is for (sorta) pro’s and testers whereas WDLXTV is for everyday use.

Good stuff added:

* rewrote hotplugging/unplugging script
* defaults to video on boot
* independant welcome_logo and screen_saver
* Samba/CIFS support aka windows share mounting (requires Samba app pack)
* Experimental wireless adapter support (thx to Zorander) (requires wireless-mod-wdlxtv app pack)
* new logo's by Pennhaven

You may find the latest release at the WDLXTV page.

I’ve spent a tremendous amount of time hacking the WDTV firmware, so if you appreciate my efforts please donate a little something using the link below : ) Thanks & enjoy.

Any way you can please mirror the files on some other free file service such as MediaFire? Rapidshare only lets you download one file and then makes you wait 15 minutes. Appreciate it. Thanks.

currently “Uncategorized”. I bet you want to tag this as wdtv, etc. :-)

I’m trying to use wireless with zd1211b but without success. What do you mean with:
“Experimental wireless adapter support (thx to Zorander) (requires wireless-mod-wdlxtv app pack)”
I don’t know what and where is wireless-mod-wdlxtv pack. I installed wireless-mod.app.bin rom zorander (0.0.3 wasn’t available) and the light flashes, but my router doesn’t give IP. I’m using WPA and I edited wpa_supplicant tool. My question is this file with quotes or without quotes in SSID and PSK. Can it be because of that? I tried several combinations also with scan_ssid=1 but nothing. Can you help?

<<< edit: updated link, look to forum.wdlxtv.com for trouble shooting and config. –b-rad >>>
