The second Howto is not for those with a faint heart. Howto Flash via the root.cramfs method

It means that you use the network connection (or crossover cable) to FTP the image to your Dreambox and to flash it manually.

This way is only supported by the CDK boxes or what are also called Engima 1 boxes.

the DM500, the DM56xx and the DM7000

When you have an UTP (LAN) connection between your PC and Dreambox, do the following:
  1. Rename the image into root.cramfs (in small letters)
  2. Copy this root.cramfs with a FTP-software to your Dreambox in the subdirectory /var/tmp
  3. Push on the Dream or Menu button on your remote control to get into the Enigma menu
  4. Go to the System Settings menu and choose the Software update

Now choose Software update where you will see 2 possibilities:
  1. Internet update
  2. Manual update

Now you choose the last option (Manual Update).


The Dreambox is now looking for your /var/tmp/root.cramfs file and when it is found flashing starts the usual way.
