V7hd hangs on L098 after downgrade

Postby TemichL » Fri Aug 10, 2018 8:11 pm

It's new device. Gtmedia firmware was there.
Wifi worked well, cccam settings were correct, free channels were ok. But all another channels were crypted.
I decided to downgrade to firmware from my second box (there is decryption works well).
After furmware my box hangs on boot.

Reload with pressing menu during the boot doesn't help.(usb with file inserted).

To do a flash restore:
Place a copy of the software (Freesat_v7_hd.bin) on your USB stick and rename it "flash.bin".
With the usb in your V7, power on while repeat pressing "Menu" on the remote.
The unit should reload the software.

Hello. I already tried this.
On black display i see words 'usb upgrade!! 'Etc
But after reboot i see the same.
I configured cccam and mgcam keys before issues. Can it be cause? I hope no.

Try the flash.bin recovery using the software that was in the unit before you downgraded.

Remember that you need to use the V7 remote when pressing "Menu" for the flash.bin on the V7.
If this is working you should see "Upgrading, do not power off" on your TV.

Yes.
I'm trying to upgrade.
I added file to microUSB flash drive - flash.bin. Inserted to USB port using microusb reader,
rebooted by power, pushed "Menu" some time.
Now I see the next:
LED - "UPG"
Display - "USB Upgrade. Do not Power off!!"
15 minutes already gone from start.
What's time for upgade take usually?

WOW!!!
I Won!!
1 mistake was using Card reader. Looks like no every card reader supported.
2 mistake . Storage must be less 16GB( I used 64GB and 32GB)
So I upgraded from First try using Kingston USB Flash drive with 16GB size.
My friend has experience with different SAT devices so he told that many of devices work with Kingston less 16GB size ONLY!!!

Freesat upgraded, booted. Configs were restored from backup.
I'll check sat functionality today later.
