Bricked 500s? - 19-February-2009, 11:46

I tried to flash my DM500S with the SifTeam-1.9.3C-500MV image, seemed to flash ok, box rebooted and now it just sits there, wont power up or so anything at all.

Is it bricked, can I reflash it via rs232 or is it dead dead?

Reflash with rs232
rs232 will solve all bad flash problems except:
-gemini clone bomb
-hardware issue (loose contact)

Can't be solved by serial flashing. JTAG is needed.

Right, the box is just sitting there with its green light on, remote doesnt do anything nor does the standby button on the front.
Dreamup sits there and says "Connection prepared, now switch on the dreambox!"
Umm, have done..
