Hi,

After the killing day... I'm not ready to trust Gemini team ever again.
I was wondering, which image can I use for my cloned DM500s? without risking my box's safety.

Thanks,

Adame

Use EDG-Nemesis 4.0, it's the best image out there.


Cheers.

Just be careful when using newer images that might use the new drivers, at least until the picture is clear.

Install an old image e.g. Gemini 4.20. I'm still running 3.60

the eagle is a good safe image and works well on clone 500s, it uses no drivers from dmm.

Under Nemesis, new release.

Well, I know Gemini 4.2 - 3.2 works on the DM500, but after what they did... I decided to definitely quit using it.

Any other image can be used on a clone?

I've just loaded up Nabilo v0.8 and its fine, having a few probs mounting hdd through CIFS though, this worked a treat on Gemini.

Ngrab and hacksat all working ok..

I won't return to Gemini just yet, until all this hoohaa has died down.

But i'm not chancing mine being a victim of clone time bombs, esp as it was £70 and delivered from china LOL :)

Any old image will be ok but none of the tradition teams can be considered safe any more as they are all ultimately under the control of DM.

I would not trust any future releases from any of these groups - Gemini, EDG-Nemisis, Nabilosat, etc,etc as, like Gemini, they can no longer be trusted. And should anything go wrong, they, like Gemini, will blame DM and absolve themselves of any responsibility.

There will always be a risk involved installing someone elses image onto your dreambox. We all trust that they have tested the image out and that it will not damage our boxes.
