Hello,

I always get same errors, which I can still make this error do not come Erase Flash done
you need to be sure which Flash memory you got mate

if its INTEL te28F640 then use dreamflash for windows jtag program

if its INTEL js28F640 then you need to use DOS jtag programe

tested my self and its working like a charm

good luck and many thanks for this wounderfull community

WBR.

Before i take the showel and start to examine the piles of crap i have in my basement to find the harware for a jtag cable there is one thing im curious about.
Can one be sure its a timebomb issue? Or is there no way of knowing? This is my first db clone and ive always used other brands before so i dont know how the clone acts if its some other issue.

Is it as simple as if someone just cut the cable?

@dude

it needs some focus and you can make it , its not that difficult.

tools needed ,
1 LPT Cable
1 Serial RS-232 Cable
and an electric Soldering tool

and you're set , all the new gemini images have TimeBomb . so if you use gemini soon your DB will die and need the JTAG

I do not understand you. First of all JTAG is to repair boot section of the flash memory on the box. Boot is erased on clone boxes with Gemini image after 45 days if you dont have na original MAC addres. If you have any other problem with the box that's for shore not for JTAG.

I am afraid that then your box is broken (flash or RS232 chip) - try to flash it with flash wizzard.

I have a problem with my clone DM500s. I had famous adios amigos problem. Then I flashed a boatloader with JTAG by parallel port with Dm500JtagAIO. It is an alps tuner so I flashed the alps version boatloader. Everything goes ok. Then i disconnect the JTAG and power it up again. But i cannot connect with DreamUp by serial cable. I have the correct null model cable and i also tried several dreamup version. I tried the latest version and also 1.2.1.5 and one special for dm500 DreamUp500.exe. I also tried several cables, all correct null modem cables. No succes. The green led is on when i power it up, but nothing reacts.

I do the correct order of first clicking connect and then power up the dreambox.
Please help what is the problem here???

Hi,
I have the same problem described in this forum. My DM500s is dead. I read several forums and I tried to upload a new image. I started to create a LPT cable and connect it to my DM500s (about 10 cm). Using jtag_windows and other jtag, I have the following error: Register Test Failed. Check cable connection.
I seen in some other forum that we can use DreamFlash for Windows v0.1
could someone give this tool (DreamFlash for Windows v0.1). Thanks for your help.
Does someone has any idea?
PS: I do not have tested using 100 ohms resistors yet.
Thanks.
