OK.. I think the box is bricked. I downloaded and unzipped the ipab TV flash, formated the memory stick (fat32) tried to install but I'm just getting boot and green light on the box display and ipab TV logo on the screen (which I had before trying the new flash)
Any suggestions guys? Cheers

I fucked mine up when I tried flashing an image a while ago and flashing with a blank OpenATV image off the image website fixed it for me, then I flashed my image over the top.

Can't do it right now as on my phone but go on OpenATV's website and find the box model, or on the zgemma website.

Thanks Janso I've just tried that, it won't install anything, it's like the box is frozen, It won't pick up the USB. Think I may need a new box.. Thanks for the advise much appreciated

yes i did...i have even tried the v7 basebuild from woosh, (any few old firmwares for zgemma star H2)...nothing.
I went as far as buying a so-called software on fleebay which was supposed to sort the stuck on boot problem, ended up to be the BOOTICE and instructions added to the woosh's basebuild i had already tried, been sold to me for a fever.... so upset with myself...

There is no basebuild now for wooshbuild it's wooshbuild infinity when you flash with openatv 6.3 when it gets to 49% which is the hdmi setting go on putty enter your box ip address press connect will say login as type root then press enter will say logged in as and type all of this command opkg install Untitled Document l/setup.ipk then press enter
