What is a FLASH DUMP? How does one flash a receiver? Does it need a loader like a software download? Help needed please.

Anybody who knows the procedure for flashing any receiver should tell me the step by step procedure involved. Where are my learned colleagues?

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

You seem to have the wrong idea of what a self help forum is all about. There's shed loads of information available on the site and it is all categorised if you check the various forums you will find stickes marked with a red dot which tell the the basics of how to achieve what you want. If you then hit a problem you can ask a question. Nobody has the time to hold someone's hand throught all the various stages for each individual receiver.

Dear,Flashing your receiver is programming the Flash memory wich contains boot and software informations.You need a Jtag cable or Labtool to do that.
Each model of receivers has his special flash type,like
m29f400bt------->0.5 Mbytes
39vf800a------>1 Mbytes
39vf160 ------->2 Mbytes
39vf1602------->4 Mbytes
You should know your receiver's flash, it's a big ship inside the box.
Do not try to do that, you may destroy it. Let a technician do it if there is a need.

Actually, are you really sure that what you want to do is to flash your receiver or to patch it?

Whichever he is referring to it is the same except the former uses the manufacturer's firmware the latter uses patched firmware.

Actually I,m already used to patching receivers. Flashing is what I'm interested in learnig. There are so many sites with loaders and softwares for patching hundreds of receivers. But there doesn't seem to be such sites with detailed information and necessary programs for flashing various receivers. Or may be I'm yet to come across them. Thanks.
