Ok i went to flash from hydra to gemini on my dm500 and i broke it , now all it says when i turn it on is:

FATAL ERROR : but NOT showControlPanel

is there anyway i can hard reset or fix this, i hear with dreamup and a female>female comport cable it works. But i cant get hold of one of those until tommrow.

Is there no other way of sorting it ? maybe via remote commands or ethernet ?

Welcome to the world of Dreambox...

You will have to use the old null modem cable and install the original image and flash erase.

Don't know any other way - wish I did!

Yes you can have a crossover ethernet cable which allows you to connect two pc's together via network cards without the need to use a hub

Wonder if its going to BURN another hole in your pocket. I would have waited till i got the right cable. Patience is a virtue, so im told. Not that i have any.

man, you got bal*s the size of a dreambox! I had the same problem (not the balls, the dreambox) when I first flashed my 5620 with a 7000 image, and was advised that it might really screw it up if you are using a dodgy nullmodem cable...so I waited and got a proper one...
It is really not recommended to use homemade nullmodem cables....

Oh Ye of little faith. :D


(havin said that.... my mum can solder better than that)

But fair play for having the belief to hook up your DB to it.

Glad it all went according to prayer. :)
