Hi guys
hopefully you can point me in the right direction, tyied to update to open ATV 6.2 but its all gone wrong - installed 6.2 went onto terminal to upload WB but was stuck on loop for about an hour going over the updating over and over again so i switched box off and now it goes to 100 then back to 50 and stuck on loop - tried to put new usb in to flash open atv again but it wont read it on boot up - have file named "force" in it but still wont read - any ideas ? also tried usb in front too
thanks in advance :)

If just looping re format the usb and try again make sure you have the right image for your box flashonline won't work as the box not fully booting up there is a command for putty or terminal you can use to flash

Hi Cant get into terminal as dont exist on the box anymore - downloaded putty and tried the command
opkg install http://wbuildx.co.uk/setup.ipk - but does not work - tried flashing with 2/3 different usbs but just boots up - image is defo right - i can though get into the box on file zilla but not sure what i can do in there - is there a boot section within the files i can possibly delete to stop it looping ?

Try a different power supply to H2h and see if it will boot up or flash, to prepare the usb's for flashing, download @Willo3092 toolkit from resources section

tried formatted usb and image is defo correct - any instructions on flashing using putty ? i can access the box and files using filezilla - can i not delete the boot config to stop it looping maybe? which files would i delete ?

Differenet power supply didnt make any difference - tried several usb's still no joy just stuck on boot
did you prepare the usb's using the toolkit mentioned?
if you've tried 4 or 5 usb's, you may need to try another 4 or 5 until you find one that works, not too big or too small, 8gb is about right

Hi Everyone
Thanks so much for your support and advice - i actually managed to flash it with a new usb stick - funny why these boxes are so temperamental.
Once i loaded ATV 6.2 went onto terminal to download WB but the same problem again - it keeps looping and repeating the download over and over again - do you think there could be a problem their end? luckily i powered box off at the end of the cycle before it repeated itself but now i have a box that boots up wanting to update plugins over and over again unless i press exit when the box then works fine

Happened to me when I was trying to reinstall Plugins from a backup, are you trying that if so dont
No bud, just fresh install but this has happened twice now which is why i think something wrong on the WB set up on terminal and not me lol

it needs the usb leaving in for temp storage while it's installing plugins etc, try leaving it in when running the infinity command, also don't install any HD skins

USB was already in buddy - as for skin only had choice for VM as Metrix HD, VMHD & VM2HD so picked VMHD - do you think thats is what has tripped it ?

it could be, choose a non HD skin as they have been known to hog resources on lower end boxes, H2h is just a H2s with a cable tuner, also don't install picons and store the epg on usb/hdd if possible as the box may be struggling

When you turn the box off does it start the infinity setup again?
Is It getting stuck installing the wb plugins? Try removing your usb stick, It may error as it tries to download the picons though
