    Question Dreambox NAND flash image only. Why?

    I bought and sucessfully connected to my dreambox7025 with Dreamup (using NULL modem Cable)
    .
    I want to flash with an img
    But the problem is, the program is only recognising NAND flash images *.nfi

    How do i get it to recognise *.img files?

    Rename the *.img files to *.nfi, then it will recognize it.

    .img images are for the 500. 600 and 7025 images are .nfi and are 3/4 times the size.

    Is it correct that the 500+ uses the new .nfi type images as well?

    I think the 7020 uses .nfi so that only leaves the 5620, 7000 and 500 using the old .img files

    One big advantage with the 7020 and 7025 is the ability o recover from a bad flash due to the 2 stage boot loader. It makes flashing fast and easy as well.
