    Congratulatations! your HD Receiver is original!! You can experience and enjoy much more more new functions. If your box ID don't match, please upload old firmware again before rebooting max 10 times otherwise , your HD receivers will be killed!!

    click on openbox and then click on the firmware you wish to download .dont worry if you see skybox as this is just another name for the openbox the only real difference is that you will see skybox on your tv screen instead of openbox .also you can use the s9 firmware on the s10 box but you cant use the s10 firmware on the s9 box .

    if you find that you have allready flashed your box with the wrong firmware and its stuck you will then need to reflash your box (with the correct firmware) using a null modem cable see post number 2 for instructions .
