First you run one of the scripts in homebrew scripts

1. detailed instructions below

2. confirm palace is in homebrew mode

Copy the files to the root of a usb device (thumbdrive should be FAT32, EXT3 will work only if permissions are set correctly, NTFS will NOT work)

Files Needed are

1. 2.02.32-WDLXTV_Gen3-0.1.5.bin


3. wdtvlivegen3.bin.mpm

4. wdtvlivegen3.bin.mpm.sha1.sum

SAFELY remove the usb device

Attach the usb with the bootstrap files & firmware files to the Gen3 Device

Go into setup -> about and verify the version says 2.02.32-WDLXTV_Gen3-0.1.5 or something similarly tagged

Detailed Instructions

On Linux:

requirements: curl

to execute: ./

Follow instructions of menu

You can hardcode the IP if you edit the script

On Windoze:

to execute:

Step 1) edit device-ip.txt and enter in the file ONLY your media players IP address

Step 2) win-homebrew-upload.bat

Step 3) win-homebrew-brewme.bat

Step 4) win-homebrew-status.bat

If everything works you'll see nice message, if you see a lot of HTML the theme upload failed for whatever reason - probably wrong IP address

SO, if you see a lot of HTML edit device-ip.txt and make sure the ONLY thing the file contains is your WDTV's IP address.
