Angry Series 2 DTV frozen

I give up.... I have a hacked RCA DVR80 with a 300G drive hacked with the Zipper, tytools, HMO, MRV, etc. All was working great for a many months, then it started to reboot every few days. I read that "mfsassert -please" would force a GSOD and start a scandisk-ish function on the hard drive, and tried it. After the GSOD completer (3 hours) the UNLEASHED (Almost there...) screen came up and there it sat.

I have tried the KickStart options on http://alt.org/wiki/index.php/TivoDiagnostics with no luck. I still freeze on the same screen.

Pulled the drive and ran PowerMax which reported no errors.

Put it in a PC and can mount the /dev/da4 partition fine. I copied a backup copy of my rc.sysinit.author file to the etc/rc.d directory and tivoapp into the tvbin directory. Still no change.

I noticed that the VAR directory totally empty, so I put the log dir back and put some old log files in it in case it was hanging while trying to write to missing logs. Still no luck.

WHere do I go from here? Can I mount the MFS partitions and copy shows to a fat drive to make sure i do not lose them? FYI: I have a fat drive in the PC that I used to copy the backups to the TiVo drive.

This is of course nit-picking, but the zipper just came out last month (unless you were a beta tester or something maybe)>

in answer to you quesion, no, no easy way to get the shows off.
You can try to save teh drive with either spinrite or ddrescue though.
