Flash it using Image Manager

 

Transfer the zipped image to /media/hdd/imagebackups

Blue > Vix > Image Manager

Blue to flash

Flash procedure for an ET5000:

  • Insert the USB stick into either any of the USB ports on the ET5000 on the front or rear panel, it doesn't matter which you use.
  • Now Power Off and Power On the ET5000 through the powerswitch at the rear panel of the box
  • After Power On, ET5000 will try and detect if there is ET5000 firmware available on the USB stick.
  • When the yellow/orange LED shines then there is ET5000 firmware detected. To load the ET5000 firmware you'll need to press the up button on the frontpanel at this point. When the green and the yellow/orange LED shine together the ET5000 is loading the firmware.
  • Please be patient because it will take a couple of minutes to finish upgrading.
  • When the yellow/orange LED disappears then the ET5000 is finished upgrading the firmware. The ET5000 will startup automatically after the upgrade is finished.

Currently in use: VU+Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), Amiko Viper T2C (T2), SAB Alpha Triple HD (S2+T2), Zgemma H3.T2C (T/C), Zgemma H6 (fallback), VU+Zero (fallback)

I can't imagine that in the present situation one of the previous bootloaders is in the box. You should have the latest. I've added the one I have used previously.
