Any chance of someone figuring out how to do this with MedeBo fw? I'm using Shizzl mod 3.2, and I got the FTP service to access the root partition, but it's clumsy and slow. I really enjoyed this root partition hack when I had PBO fw.
Problem solved for Medebo fw, and probably for PBO firmwares (w/ yaffs). I simply removed configsamba (thereby preventing it from messing up other files) and then edited the smb.conf as indicated in post #1. I now have Windows read/write access to root, hdd, and usb drives.
What IS the purpose of configsamba, anyway? The unit seems to run perfectly fine without it.
In a nutshell "configsamba" creates a new smb conf on start up based upon what you have connected to your PBO.
Does this apply only to PBO fw? I ask because in my MedeBO fw I added root and usb drives to my smb.conf (and removed sambaconfig), and they always show up on my PC, even when I insert the usb drive after PBO startup.
