But I got another problem; whenever I plug everything in, it asks for a password. It shows the energy star logo though.
1. What am I doing wrong?
2. Where is the security dongle located just in case i misread something?
3. Is the password something obvious?

1. Answer this first: Are you working on a Roxor cabinet or an Andamiro cabinet?
2. It's the black squarish thing with the silver circular battery on top, protruding from the computer
3. No, which is why you need to circumvent it with the security dongle pulling technique.

Turn off the machine, pull the battery out, wait like 1 minute, put it back in, turn the machine back on, mash F11.

A few more questions:

1. Do I just put the theme in the root directory of the usb?
2. Do I need to like turn off event mode and such in the theme, or does it do that automatically?

Where you put things on your USB doesn't make any difference. You could put it in a folder called "donkey porn" if you wanted. What matters is where on the machine you put it, which should be in mnt/hda5/custom/Themes/

NO NO NO NO NO, A THOUSAND TIMES NO.

You pull out the ENTIRE SECURITY DONGLE, not the battery. As the guide says, do NOT remove the security dongle's battery. You will be up shit creek without a paddle if you take that battery out; it messes with things, to make a long story short. Everything else Tyler said is correct though.

Mute's ITG Hacking Guide ~ Adding Custom Songs & Themes

Postby ServerOfTheAlter on Sun Nov 27, 2011 3:15 am

Umm, I've taken it out like seven times but it still asks for a grooving password. :/

Edit: I'm posting from an iPod; guess who's.

Also I think it might be a Andamiro cabinet, seeing as one of the wires says that, but I'm not really sure.
I've tried both ways and they both ask for a password (yes, I didn't remove the battery). :?

Did you leave the dongle out for at least 30 seconds before putting it back in?

Yes, it was out for exactly 30 seconds, and longer, we tried it like ten times and every time it comes up with a black screen saying "Enter password".

And toor doesn't work either.

Yes, we even timed it to make sure I wasn't putting it in prematurely. It still asked for a password.
The dongle just slips in and out like a usb pretty much right?

Well, shit. Dunno what to tell you guys.

There is an alternate method of bypassing that password that involves removing the CMOS battery from the computer, but I don't know how to do that properly. Try posting in AIJ's "Technical" subforum.

Do you have the the speed mods listed properly in your theme's english.ini file? You can't just add them to the metrics.ini file.

For example: If you have this in your metrics.ini file, you need this under [OptionNames] in your english.ini file.

So i just create a english.ini file write all the speed mods i want, like you showed, me and toss in the theme's folder?

I just followed the instructions and i thought the theme's metric's would take care of the machine's options so i just putted happy feet's theme and rebooted the machine.
