3.1-3.3 Update Failed (Need original files)

A long, long time ago, I patched /usr/bin/showlog, entirely forgetting what I changed and what the original was. When trying to update to 3.3, I get

Code:
130213:092315 ota_install: I def:patch:patchinfo="/usr/bin/showlog":patching file
130213:092315 ota_install: C def:patch:patchinfo="/usr/bin/showlog":checksum failure
130213:092315 ota_install: I def:patch:current_md5=8d5c0917914f5aff3d7a394987a16b02,expected_md5=36c803187d903dcef23b3f1d008a1f13,patch_md5=fd058e5dabcc2cf428453ab9923284a3:checksum verify
I looked here, where all the solutions to the problem link to, but all the uploads are dead, and copying the source doesn't work. Does anybody have this file? If so, please send to removed@removed.com!

Look in the "References and Links" section of the debricking sticky at top of this forum index.

the patch was to point it to /dev/null IIRC?

and the original hmm.... STDOUT?

something like that IIRC.

Will have a dig around.


Honestly??? I would just use k3flasher. flash it clean. upgrade.
you would be done by now.

those are my thoughts.

Thank you very much knc1! I should have gone straight there after nothing else worked, but I got the update working. And yes twobob, I got the patch from one of those "Stop Big-Brother Mode" posts years ago.

Just in case anybody has the same problem, the debricking sticky pointed to this thread to debrick. However, instead of going through the whole flashing process (I'm in linux, without access to a 32 bit Windows computer), I just found the file I had patched (/usr/bin/showlog) in the downloadable firmware image in pastebin (3.0.2 factory image). I'll leave it up to you to get files out of the .img, but it worked for me.

We do it a bit differently now - by setting the device firewall to block any connections to the Amazon network.

RSN, will have KUAL buttons for the "Big Brother Blocker".

KUAL is the newest application launcher.

**ALL** done from the USB storage area, without modification of system files (preventing the problems like yours).
