I got it finally!!
This worked for me:

tar xvf touchtoolbox2.0.tar

enjoy!

OK, so this is very interesting.

Some OS X users had issues with <tar xvf touchtoolbox2.0.tar> and replaced it with <tar xf touchtoolbox2.0.tar> and that worked.

Other OS X users had issues with <tar xf touchtoolbox2.0.tar> and replaced it with <tar xvf touchtoolbox2.0.tar> and that worked.

Hmm...CLI experts any ideas here why one variation works for some and not for others and vice-versa?

I change it back to xvf. Thx for the hints.

Good to see that more and more OSX folks get it done slowly but surely.
Let me know if I should put some more comments in for the OSX process in particular

BTW: I made a little mistake last night ( too much Squeeze in my head lately):

I said type:

ls tar*

it should have been

ls *tar

ls lists all files ending with tar in that particular directory you're in . If it says "no file found" or similar
you're in the wrong directory or your file is not there. The next step tar command will fail.


Cheers

A question:

Anybody around who experienced a problem on internet radio streams?

Somebody reported "Chipmunks" like sounding radio stations, with the digital
output mod in place. Pandora would be working fine.

Cheers

As a OS X user, I'm a beginner, I could finally install the toolbox 2. It was not so easy for me and it took me some hours, but I'm so happy with the audio result of this mods. I want to say to soundcheck: VIELEN DANK!!! Thank you very much!!! Merci beaucoup!!!Grazie mille!!!ありがとうございます!!!

For me as OS X user there was some problems which I want to tell you.
I used the terminal, no 3rd part programm.
First I downloaded the toolbox to my user directory, but from this directory, I couldn't copy it to my touch!???!!????
So I made a new folder with

mkdir temp

after I put the downloaded toolbox file to this new folder.

from this new folder I could finally copy the toolbox file to my touch!

cd temp
scp touchtoolbox2.0.tar root@Your-Touch-IP-Address:/

(with "ls" you can check if you are in the right folder. It makes you a list from all the files in the actual folder which you are)

then I go to the touch to unpack the .tar file as

ssh root@Your-Touch-IP-Address
Password: 1234
cd /
tar xvf touchtoolbox2.0.tar

that was the way which I had to go for the nice audio result...hope it helps you as a OS X user....I'm new in OS X and Linux things...

And btw, I use the mod with the touch firmware 7.5.0...because my Synology NAS doesn't have an update package yet.......but it works

cheers

Hi Klaus,
Any idea what tar : short read means? It doesn't matter if I use 'tar xf...' or 'tar xvf...' I keep getting the 'short read' message. I've tried 'ls *tar' and I am surely in the right directory. I've also tried starting over from scratch, moving the 'touchtoolbox2.0.tar' file to a new folder and starting the whole process over again. Still, no dice.

Here is a copy and paste of what I'm seeing :

Problem solved and I'm a bit surprised as to what was the cause. The 'touchtoolbox2.0.tar' file itself was the culprit. When I right clicked on it and selected 'get info' I discovered the file was 0kb. There was nothing in it!

Moving forward now...
