What should you do when it goes belly up?you may have created more problems than solved m8, if its a bad flash you,ll need a null modem cable and dreamup software to rescue the box.
it will flash a new image to the box safely, i always use the null lead to send images to mine, it takes longer but is safer and you can rescue it if it goes tits up.
hopefully you already have a null modem cable at home, if so plug it in your pc and box and use dreamup software to send the image to the box.
for people who are not into telnet and fxp it is the easiest way to go.
start software select com port1 click connect, plug box in(power) then flash image, simple no going wrong but it takes a bit longer than the other ways.
