Hi Folks,

If you're thinking of trying the Power Of Dreams 2.7 image, then DON'T!!!

I did and ended with quite disturbing results!!

See my post on Toes if you want more info.

Otherwise just avoid it, like the plague!!!

73 & happy dreaming (with more power than the power of dreams!)

Can you not cut and paste the post td03-5, not everyone here is a member at the Den.

I agree though, doesn't seem much advantage to installing the image if it has limited or no decryption capability.

Know you won't mind td03-5 here's the post...

I installed this image in multiboot.
Booted it and, OK it worked on FTA, had a different look but I don't take much notice of that , it's what it receives that counts!

Couldn't find any buttons to select emus or downloads or anything! OK the triple X is much like this but it has newcamd only pre-installed. Lets have a look with FTP and Telnet and see what's in there, I thought!

Tried FTP but failed to log in. Tried Telnet, same failure.
User is 'root' but password not 'dreambox'.
Eventually found password is 'sandbox' (inspired guess after looking at the 'about' panel in Dreambox menus).

Found it had newcamd in a folder called /var/emu rather than /var/bin. Found /var/scce folder empty.
Transferred latest /scce contents into it and added lybcrypto.
There is no way, as I said, to select or restart an emu so I rebooted the image.
AND
Big message panel:-

'BOZO WARNING'
'This image has been illegally modified.'

Followed by the dire consequences that would befall me for carrying out this dreadful action!!!!!!!

Unless I've missed something, this is an image to avoid!

Hi Folks,

I just gave the warning rather than a full double post but yes I suppose it's worth telling all on both forums.

Thanks Gameboy.

73 & happy dreaming.
