Fucking excellent, thanks mate! Done a pretty great job, very detailed and I couldn't translate my tutorial the way you have. Thanks and I will see what I can do to get the HDMU sorted for you. What did you say needed to be done, key mapping? I think the software is open source so I will alter it according to the miraclebox remote functions. Ill upload a final image soon but will get to work on it this weekend. Working up in solna but back in good old skÅne the weekend!
As far as I understand mate, take the bootloader file, I think it ends in a .FAC. Put that file on a usb and plug it into your box. It will then pop up as a firmware update and you press the red download button. All done. Give it a try, remember to format the usb to fat32. Depends what you are wanting to do from the octagon server. It will be of no use if you are installing enigma 2. Hope that helps and you're welcome
Secondly you can try the Haarp Image. I prefer Nebula as it is in a more final form than what the others are. I have had no problems and key mapping seems to be on the ''T''. Havent had any problems so far.
It is very possible to brick your box, Not with a different reseller ID version but with a software from the same reseller. For example installing miraclebox 6 plus firmware on the miraclebox 6 hd. Give it a try and you will see that it is indeed very possible. What box do you have? I'm glad to see that my tutorial has gone to good use. We need to get word out on these Miracleboxes so that support will expand and make it a lot easier for us who own these boxes.
PS, could you link me to the HDMU image? Would like to give that a go
Another reason I used the serial cable/Null cable modem is because there is a higher risk bricking your box with the usb upgrade method, (for those that are new to the sat mod scene). With a null cable the software automatically declines any incompatible software and allows you to try something else whereas if you would do it via usb it will flash regardless of what software you are trying to install. For example, You use box tool and install the re-seller ID for the icecrypt 3500 then install the icecrypt 3000 software for some reason or another or by mistake. You will have bricked and will then have to recover via null modem anyways
Thanks for that mate. At the time I made the tutorial, only the HDclone images were available for download. Now that it is more supported and PKteam are working daily on the less common boxes I see there are alternate ways of doing things. The method you state now are for the .img files that can be downloaded from pkteam website and I must say the run a whole lot faster and more securely than the HDclone method. Thanks for that!
Trust me buddy, I have better things to do all day than run scams or steal from people. I have put a lot of work into this tutorial for people like you. Have a little patience with this kind of thing and eventually all will fall the way it should. Hope you've managed to get it running now. Email me for any further help mate, I'll be happy to assist
Yeah Rodak, Works like a charm. I must say that the Miraclebox 6 has greater performance being booted this way. I have been using it now since this post and have not looked back. If you guys want I can upload a video or pictures for you all.
The advantages and benefits of enigma 2 are as follows:
Better support, PKTeam are working on and upgrading their software daily! Long list of apps to install. Apps that dreambox uses can be run on your old, under-powered Miraclebox. I would recommend this to all who ask about it! For those that are tired with the M6 epg that is very limited, Enigma 2 gives you a seven day epg on most satellites and is also extremely customizable. You can also skip the HDclone process and transfer the .IMG and the uImige directly to a usb that has been formatted fat32 and then plug it into your machine and power up. Works like a charms. Basically what this hack does is brings us from a 32MB flash memory to the 256MB.
It is completely reversible, All you would need to do is boot without the usb, open boxkit and choose Miraclebox then flash the original image back to the box. Nearly impossible to brick it.
Note: by missing your box in this way you are able to boot enigma 2 without having to hold the channel down button on your receiver. All that is needed is to boot your box with the usb pen drive plugged in. If you would like to boot normal software, unplug the pen drive before booting. Again if any are stuck I will be glad to help. This method is user friendly and no matter what you will not be able to brick your box. If you would like to remove the mod just remove the PKT loader with the software you used to install it and the with boxtool select your original reseller id and roll back to original software..
