    no you shouldnt flash with dbox2 .you need the dbox x1 image
    flash the same as dbox2.
    use flash fxp.
    . Power on the TV and DBox, but don’t hook it up to your PC yet.
    first do a system restore point just in case.
    Using the remote control, press DBOX > SETTINGS > NETWORK
    Take a note of the DBox network settings
    (this is an example only)

    IP-Address 192.168.0.3
    Net Mask 255.255.255.0
    Broadcast 192.168.0.255
    Def Gateway 192.168.0.2
    Name Server 192.168.0.2

    disable all firewals and antivirus.
    Right-click the network card (it may say Local Area Connection),
    and select PROPERTIES > CONFIGURE > ADVANCED tab
    Select the ‘Use the following IP address’
    Enter the settings, as you seen it on your DBox, except the IP address will be one digit less of the last number
    (eg. 192.168.0.3 on DBox, so use 192.168.0.2 on your PC)

    OK these settings.

    Connect the RJ45 cable between PC and DBox (linking them together)

    Run the Flash FXP program
    On one side should be the files on the PC
    On the other side make sure you select ‘ftp browser’ (the tab is a monitor and folder picture)
    (It may already be selected)

    Click CONNECT (the icon which looks like a lightening bolt)

    Select QUICK CONNECT the three boxes require some information
    SERVER OR URL = (enter the IP address of the DBox)
    USERNAME = root
    PASSWORD = dbox2

    Then click CONNECT

    You should now see the DBox files in the window (if not, check the IP settings).


    5. In the PC file window, browse to the folder containing the Image file you are going to use (eg. “1x-cryo-sportster.img”)

    In the DBox window browse to the TMP folder (NOTE: you may already be in this folder).

    Transfer the image file across into the TMP folder

    When done close down the Flash FXP program.

    (Now go over to the DBox)


    6. Using the DBox remote control, press (in this order)

    DBOX > SERVICE > SOFTWARE UPDATE > EXPERT FUNCTIONS > WRITE ONE PARTITION >
    FLASH WITHOUT BOOTLOADER

    Select the Image available (the one you just transferred over from PC) and select YES to flash

    The DBox will start to erase existing flash, and write the new one (this will only take a few minutes)
    The DBox will reset itself when done, and start up the new image

    *** CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY FLASHED YOUR DBOX ***

    IF YOUR DBOX DOESN’T START BACK UP CORRECTLY …
    Use the ‘System Restore’ program on your PC
    Select ‘Restore To An Earlier Time’ and choose the correct point
    Turn back ON your firewall, and virus checker
    Connect back onto the internet, and online to the forum
    Search for the answer to your problem, or post for some help !!!


    7. Now To Add Some Channels:

    Go back to stage 2, and check, as your DBox IP Address may have changed

    Take a note of the settings (if different) (if so, change the settings on your PC as shown in stage 3)


    8. Go back to the PC, and run the Flash FXP program

    Reconnect the PC to DBox (remember the IP Address of the DBox may have changed)

    In the PC file window, browse to the folder containing the “service” and “bouquets” files that has to be for yor area.

    In the DBox window browse to /VAR/TUXBOX/CONFIG/ZAPIT/

    Transfer the “service” and “bouquet” files across into there

    When done close down the Flash FXP program.

    9. Pull out the power cable to the DBox, wait a few seconds, and then power back on
    dont forget to set your network card back ip address automatic
    (this is the best way to prevent any channel problems)
    And a big thanks to jbhoy1 from the Woolif for this guide

    ok m8
    good luck

    A nokia dbox1 is a complete other box.
    Its a funcard and a amon cam needed to get a dbox1 going.
    Btw dbox1 doesn't mean its a dbox2 with 1x flash chip.
