Thread: TM500 Super re-flash/password reset


Forum: Technomate TM-500 TM-600 Support

Hi all, i just got my first Technomate box the tm500 super from a supplier that locks the boxes with a password (ftp password). It's been pre flashed with UR image, basically it was a plug and play box. So now i want to go in and edit files etc but i cant because of the password, i cant do the tuxbox trick as i need the password in order to launch tuxbox. I have tried both the default password of the box and the image but neither work, this is a password that my supplier put on the box, i don't

    TM500 Super re-flash/password reset

    Hi all, i just got my first Technomate box the tm500 super from a supplier that locks the boxes with a password (ftp password). It's been pre flashed with UR image, basically it was a plug and play box. So now i want to go in and edit files etc but i cant because of the password, i cant do the tuxbox trick as i need the password in order to launch tuxbox. I have tried both the default password of the box and the image but neither work, this is a password that my supplier put on the box, i don't know what it is and i can't contact him to find out.

    What i would like to know is what i have to do to remove the password? From what i have read it is a case of starting from scratch, so will a factory reset remove any passwords, then if i re-flash the UR image can i do this over my network or do i have to use a null cable? I apologise in advance if i sound like an amateur, it's because i am!

    I haven't just come on here and asked this without researching, i have spent days looking around various forums and i cant seem to find out if a factory reset removes any passwords.

    Hope someone can offer me some advice

    Many thanks Piemagic

    press the yellow button, is there something there called Tuxcom, if not, press the blue button and see if you can download it. a long time ago a rouge image was released that did this to people receivers, so i wrote a tutorial on how to use tuxbox to remove the passwords, ill see if i can find it

    download the pdf from here m8

    http://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/20859...-password.html

    ONLY do what it says on pages 5 & 6. carrying out any of the other steps WILL cause you to lose information on your receiver

    Thank you all for your advise.

    digidude, I came across your guide the other day when searching the net for a solution, it's a great guide so thanks for that. The problem i have though is when i press yellow i get this screen:






    When i select tuxbox commander i get this screen:



    I have tried all passwords i could find including the image password (blank), the default box password and the override code 2011 none of which work, i believe this is a password that my supplier put on to attempt to stop his customers from accessing the cline.




    If i come out of that and press the blue button i get this screen:





    If i then press blue again (panel) i get this screen:





    Im guessing i have no choice but to reset my box, reflash it with the latest UR image, find a new server and edit the cccam cofig file via mini-web, but i just wanted someone who knows what they are doing to confirm it as i am still learning and don't want to brick my box, i paid quite alot of money for it and i've only had it 2 weeks (i know i must have MUG written on my forehead). I can't tell you how much i have read over the last week on this subject and im still not sure if what im thinking is correct lol.

    Re: TM500 Super re-flash/password reset

    sounds like local trader lol
    reading lots on here lately about TM linux boxes being password locked

    is a shame people buy the boxes off traders then come here when they are stuck, if only they bought the box from a shop then came here for help to get up and running
