last resort of firmware update - 24-August-2009, 20:31

Hey

i would like to flash a pli dreambox with a gemini maxvar

now i will do this with the telnet way

but i was thinking if that fails do you always have the option to go back with null modem cable and dreamup

or is there some one who have bricked there dreambox and could not restore it with dreamup? like killing the bootloader or something

telnet = dreamup.

why not do the root.cramfs way?

yes, you can do that.

or do the

eraseall /dev/mtd/3 && cp /tmp/nameofimage.img /dev/mdt/3 && reboot

root.cramfs is safer of course.
