I have just received my dreambox DM800SE (inc. internal WiFi) from one of the Chinese suppliers and have it up and running OK.
On bootup the dm800se cycles through the "Sunray" background on screen with some Chinese text now and again. Once booted up the dm800se defaults to the English language configuration and is running on the original shipped image. I have scanned in a couple of single transponders and the dm800se seems to be OK.
I would like to replace the original shipped dm800se dreambox image with a better image in order to remove any remnants of the Chinese text characters and to be able to use any additional features offered by an image from one of the mainstream support groups.
Would anyone please be able to recommend me a good image for a clone Dreambox DM800SE and confirm what the recommended process is for flashing the image onto a clone Dreambox dm800se? The SIM version is SIM 2.1 (bootlaoder 84a) so I am not sure if I need to update the bootloader before I flash the image?
As I have SIM 2.1 (bootloader 84a), do I flash the image directly to the dreambox dm800se box using DreamUp and a null modem cable or can I use the online flashing process using the IP address of the receiver?
Any help most appreciated as I do not want to brick the dreambox dm800se due to not following the correct procedure.
