WDLXTV-LIVE-0.3.4.1 – Extreme WDTV Live firmware upgrade

WDLXTV-Live is an unofficial homebrew firmware for the Western Digital WD TV Live. It enables a wide range of extra functionality which is missing from the official firmware, such as bittorrent, webserver, NZB, SSH, FTP, etc. I’ve done my best to make everything as easily configurable as possible, but it does require a little bit of work on your own. All of the settings are located in S00custom-options, which is included in the zipfile of every release. Open it in a text editor and peruse your options. If you need help there is a forum link at the bottom of the page. If you are a power user then you’ll be able to harness your Linux skills and fly off into the world of homebrew, wondering why you delayed any longer than you did.

I’ve finally fixed the NTFS issues that people had been having. NTFS is now confirmed working. Theres a few other good additions as well, like being able to mount a remote FTP as a local directory ;) The ntfs-3g driver is included, by popular demand, for power users to test with NTFS drives to determine if its better at handling high speed writes than the stock driver. I won’t provide any information on using it and if you want to try you are on your own. I don’t recommend testing with ntfs-3g unless you know what you’re doing and are prepared for possible unforeseen consequences–which there might not be any, but you are forewarned.

0.3.4.1
* ntfs-3g-2009.4.4-1 included (power users test at own risk)

0.3.4
* using Paragon NTFS driver, NTFS devices *should* now mount correctly (finally)
* curlftpfs-0.9.2-1 included
* openssl-0.9.8k-7 included
* fixed nzbget webui images not showing up
* Deluge state directory enabled (requires power cycle after changing torrent watch dir)
* fixed timezone setting command in S00custom-options & add export to /etc/profile

WDLXTV-LIVE-0.3.3.1 – Extreme WDTV Live firmware upgrade **updated**

WDLXTV-Live is an unofficial homebrew firmware for the Western Digital WD TV Live. It enables a wide range of extra functionality which is missing from the official firmware, such as bittorrent, webserver, NZB, SSH, FTP, etc. I’ve done my best to make everything as easily configurable as possible, but it does require a little bit of work on your own. All of the settings are located in S00custom-options, which is included in the zipfile of every release. Open it in a text editor and peruse your options.

In this release I’ve included some missing files, trimmed up a bit of space, and most importantly patched the bug that was causing a lot of you trouble getting bittorrent & NZB functionality working. Enjoy

A fairly major bug was pointed out by Marakoss, I have patched the firmware to fix it and add one slight enhancement for windows folk. You are highly recommended to upgrade as 0.3.3 is a bit broken

* libfuse2-2.8.1-1.1 included
* strace-4.5.19-1 included
* sshfs now works [maybe ;) ]
* gettext-0.17-8 included for custom translations
* more libs are md5'd / dupe files symlinked for space
* HFS devices are now fsck'd before mounting to fix r/o issue
* experimental ext4 support (mounted as ext3)
* possible NTFS fix for app.bins
