DM500 HD Flashing firmware by Browser

Flashing a new firmware by Browser

What you need to flash

You need the image file you want to flash. Image files have the extension *.nfi. You can't flash other
images like *.img files. Don't try it - it won't work.

You need either a DHCP server and a configured bootloader

You need a browser and a network cable. Connect your Dreambox to a switch/hub/router in your lokal LAN.

To flash a new image, you can use the second stage loader. It must be present and not broken.

The following steps assume you have a DHCP server.
If you don't have one, you have to setup an IP address (klick) in the bootloader's serial setup.

- Power down the Dreambox, either using "shutdown" and by switching off by the power switch.
Standby is not enough!

- (1.) Press and hold the power button.
- (2.) Switch on your Dreambox.
- (3.) Your Dreambox will get the next free DHCP IP address from your router.

- Now, open a browser on your PC.
(1.) enter in the address line "http://ip/" .
- (2.) on the bottom of the page, there's a link called "firmware upgrade". Click it.

- On the next page, you can select the flash image you want to flash. be sure that it has the ".nfi" extension.
You can't flash other images (like .img)!
- Click on "FLASH!" and wait. It might take some time to upload and flash the image.
- Switch the box off again, and on again. The new image should be flashed and working.

I'm trying to flash a new out of the box DM500HD with Dream UP.

But after I select any image I get the following error:

9:38:05 PM box type: DM500HD
9:38:35 PM Calculating checksum...
9:38:37 PM Got wrong response from box: HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request
Content-Type: text/plain
Server: yahd v1.0

entering serial loop...

How can I solve this?

Update: With the Web Flash It worked.......
