To setting up your openbox s9 for cardsharing with pictures
this short guide explains how to put the firmware (tv software )
into your openbox and how to add your c line to it .
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DOWNLOAD OR USE THIS TUTORIAL ON OTHER FORUMS.
what will you need ? .
1) You will need a USB memory stick like this example
2) you will need to download patched openbox firmware (you can download the latest firmware for your box online ,or you can download firmware from link number 1 of my signature area ) to the usb memory stick .the firmware file should end with .abs .and also download a cccam.cfg file to your usb memory stick from the same link ,you can edit it with notepad , it contains two example n lines (delete them ) and then add your c line and save your work .you add the cccam.cfg file to your box in the same manner as you ad the firmware which i will explain a little bit below.
EDIT (BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER BE ADVISED THAT YOUR BOX MAY BE A CLONE ,IF SO YOU WILL NEED TO USE CLONE SAFE FIRMWARE iLL DISCUSS HOW TO FIND OUT IF YOUR BOX IS GENUINE OR CLONE (see post number 13).
3) many of the files you download are compressed files ,this basicly means a file or files compressed to together to make it easier and faster to upload and download ,these files usually end with .rar or .zip .you will need a program that can uncompress (open) these files ,two such programs are peazip and winrar ,you can download either from link number 1 of my signature area .
4) uncompress the firmware file on your usb memory stick .
now insert the usb memory stick into the Openbox S9 ,then to update the firmware using the USB memory stick
press the Menu button /then select Tools /then select Upgrade by USB /then you will be in Upgrade Mode /then select Select firmware file/then select Start .now you will be asked ARE YOU SURE TO BURN FLASH (select yes ) ,a percentage bar will increase as the box flashes (this wont take long ) be patient here and wait for the falshing process to end and dont attempt to switch off or unplug the box ,when complete the box will restart .
as with any box that is either new or has just been upgraded with new firmware the box settings may need to be reset such as language /time and date /select the satellite /scan for channels .
now press the menu button /select network local settings /and select cccam plug setting as in the picture below.
now select update files by usb and press the ok button.
Now you have to select CCcam.cfg and press the OK button, there should be a little tick on the upper right corner indicating you have selected the file .
click press the Yellow button ,then select CCcam Plug Setting and then press the OK button. now you have to select manage config files ,now what you will see will look like this photo (but not exactly as this is not the correct photo).
you will notice it says add update files but when you reach this point it will say manage config files ,so at this point select number 1 which is cccam.cfg .now highlight and place a tick next to your cline ,when its ticked it should say online .
lastly go to network local settings and set dhcp to on and then select apply as you see in the top photo in this link
now all that should be left is to restart your box .

you can also install the firmwareusing a Null Cable but hopefully that wont be required ,but just in case heres a short guide .
in my other tutorial a newbies guide to dreambox i expalined about the way to flash Dreambox using a Serial RS232 null modem cable,you can flash your openbox via usb memory stick as i explained but you can also flash an openbox using a null modem cable .
firmware and images can be corrupt or faulty and can lead to your box becoming stuck or bricked ,but usually that can be fixed by flashing with a null modem cable and using a program called eromupgrade.exe ,if you have used a dm500s and dreamup you should have no problem with this .
what do you need ?
1/ you need a null modem cable
2/you will need to download EromUpgrade.exe (i posted a link below where you can download it)
3/ start eromupgradeexe When comes to main menu, enter the port (Com 1, 2 or etc), bit rate as ?115200? (you may not need to change this ), operate mode as ?Upgrade? and browse to the correct firmware file (.abs or .bin ,in this case it should be .abs) with a tick on ?Bootloader? box.
4 With the decoder powered off, press ?Next? button on the screen and power On the decoder. Follow the onscreen instructions ,with percentage bar will dispaly the percentage (when it gets to 100% its complete ) as always this may take a bit of time so please be patient .
Once done, you should be able to get a new firmware loaded into decoder and hopefully this will able to help you recovering from any hang issue related to software/firmware.
you can download eromupgrade.exe From Attachments
