Although I am on a DM7020 Pli with USB Multiboot, after todays happenings and in support to the fellow DM500 owners I deleted the Gemini image from the USB.

There are hundreds of things they could try...but destroying boxes....thery crossed the line

One of my friend bricked his 500S and i totally agree with you! I'll never go back to Gemini images. I've been using them since first version for DB7000 but that ends now.

Apparently it is the new drivers that contain the virus script and these drivers have been released to all image writters for use on upgraded images. So it may not end here!

Virus Script ? Its not a virus, its a block to eliminate clone boxes .... All that DMM are doing is protecting their own boxes with the added help of Gemini ... thats their choice to do that ...

Your choice is to either buy a clone or not ..use Gemini images or not ...simple

When you buy boxes that use the same MAC address, then their is always a potential for problems, MAC address' are supposed to be unique per box.

Companies that sell these clone boxes knowing that they are clones should have been more forthcoming and honest ... the customer has ended up taking the brunt of this.. If i bought a clone box from one of these shops i would send it back to them ... they have some responsibility here ..

My box is knackered aswell, but thats the risk you take in buying clones ... i bought it knowing it was a clone, i feel sorry for those who bought them from shops thinking they were buying something they obviously were not !!

Now we all know what people think of others that deliberately spread viruses, well this has to be an even dirtier trick than that.
If you buy cheap ringer spares for your motor car (as most of us do) this is not considered a big deal and your car does not blow up in a few weeks time. How many people buy ringer addidas T shirts, after shave and rolex watches. Its no big deal.
I shall NEVER use a gemin image again and I strongly urge others to do the same.
Later today I shall bar myself from their site and leave them with a piece of my mind.

Its not a virus !!! ..... its now part of the CVS code ..so it could affect all new images not just gemini.

I'll keep using Gemini ... damn fine images and works well on my authentic DM (not so great on my clone) ..but as i said earlier, if you were unwittingly sold a box that is sold as something it isn't ..then take it back to the shop you bought it from and complain.

Can someone make an easy guide for that FIX; because there are lots of beginners like me who will not get it.

And seriously screw gemini, I paid the normal price for my BOX, how the hell would I have known that it was a clone! So it is bit unfair to make situations like these. I am pretty sure Gemini will get banned from all the forums now.

PPL who are saying that it is not their fault ofcourse it is, they could have done something else, like erased teh flash or something instead of just SCREWING the whole box in and out.

So if someone can make a guide for that fix, I will really appreciate.

Seriously GEMINI what were you thinking!
