WDLXTV-Live Firmware

WDLXTV-Live is a souped up unofficial firmware for the Western Digital WD TV Live. It is based off of the 1.02.21 firmware, but with many extra features. This is a permanent flash, just like an official upgrade. It enables a wide range of extra functionality which is missing from the official firmware, such as bittorrent, webserver, NZB, SSH, FTP, NFS, etc.

Different Version

  • Normal = The Normal version requires Flashing the Firmware into the WDTV Live
  • Minimal = The Minimal version is the same as the Normal version, but without php, python, perl, nzbget, deluge, lighttpd
  • Ext3 = This version is used for testing purposes. It is identical to the normal flashed version. The main difference is that ext3-boot-live is pivoted into and run directly off your external device. This means ext3-boot-live gives you full read/write permissions.

To flash firmware
Place wdtvlive.bin on a memory stick along with wdtvlive.ver and insert it into your WDTV Live.
When asked if you want to upgrade your firmware, say yes.
The WDTV Live will reboot and after several minutes the whole flashing process will complete and reboot again.
Upon successful flash you will see WDLXTV_Live in the about screen of system settings.
The firmware no longer needs to be on anything attached to the WDTV Live.
Downgrade instructions are always provided at the bottom of the README which is included in every release’s zip.
