Does the Pace 3100 patch still work ?
Oct 19th, 2009, 7:24pm
 
I'm about to attempt this patch, but see it's been a while since various  threads have been updated.
 
Does anyone know if the patch still works OK or have Sky plugged the loophole now ?
 
Many thanks

I've been going to try this for years, I have someone I know selling an old 2nd Gen 3100
 
Would this still work in 2018 ?
 
Would be ideal for recording the odd channel etc
 
Thanks

I don't have any boxes any more but I'm sure someone posted here a few months ago saying it was still working Smiley

Thanks Steve, I'll keep you posted, I have got the diagrams and software downloaded
 
Will this Jtag process work on Win 10 or am I better sticking to Win 7 ?
 
Was there no other box that this was ever possible to do to, I hear a while back there was a Thomson box that could be modded also !
 
Thanks

I'd stick with Win7 if you are able to, Win10 does odd things!
 
The Thompson box could be modified but are not easy to get hold of!

I had thought this patch no longer worked as from 1/1/2017..  
My boxes all lost recording function having lost one tuner? I would be interested to know if these have started to work again or need to be reworked..
Regards, Liam

IIRC a reflash resolved the issue... but I could be wrong

Yes sure Tony,.. if I am successful I will of course let you know. I have a feeling though that the date of termination,.. 01/01/2017 may not have been a coincidence, but perhaps built into the patch??
I would though, like to access the original thread to refresh on a few things..
