can you not roll it back in the software update ??I'm struggling to find somewhere to download an old version of firmware for my Mag349. The current version is blocked, and the only b=version I can download form the Informer website is the blocked version. Could anyone please provide a link to an old firmware / image update version please?

There is a fix out for this now.
Registered over here as Reddit apparently killed my post as "Not Safe for Brand"
Annoyingly I'd just finished linking the finished firmware for the MAG250/254/256/322/324 when they took it down. I can re-post the entire thing here, but before I do I thought I should check that I'm not going to be breaking any rules by doing so?
I've PM'd you with the links for now, and if I'm allowed then I'll post the files here publicly. I have no issues with you quoting my work at all (and it's good that you did since the original thread was removed) The further people spread the information the better. I'm pretty wiped out since I've been building firmware all day, but I'll post the extra info I added since your quoted version at some point tomorrowNice to see you. I hope you don't mind me quoting your work. I don't know if you are allowed or not but I hope so. There are lots of other images for download so I hop it's ok.
If you can't post could you PM me the links.
Just a thought - - - has anyone attempted to use their router to block dcbs.infomir.com
ie enabling the block in the /etc/hosts of the router rather than the MAG itself ? (typically most routers have this type of 'blacklist' facility; even ISP supplied devices).
Might be an easier fix for many people, and might be a good prophylactic for people who are not (yet) experiencing difficulties with this issue.
Touching wood - my own provider is so far not effected by this, and as my ISP doesn't undertake any blocks or restrictions I am not so sure that any testing that I might undertake would be wholly productive or otherwise just produce some false-positives, but I am aware than many people are under the cosh, particularly when the EPL games are underway.
Yes you can. In much the same way as explained above by @hearts by doing it within the MAG itself, you can do it using your router - - they basically work the same way when all said and doneI might be wrong but if you are saying stop the MAG from being contacted by Infomir at the router. Is it not the case that the box contacts Infomir and not the other way around? Can you Block an outgoing communication at Router?
You can on some routers block outgoing connections, but reliability varies.
It's important to note that it's not dcbs.infomir.com you need to block, but mag???.dcbs.infomir.com, where ??? is the model number.
It's also important to note that if the box successfully reaches that server even once it stores the list locally so any sites in it will still be blocked, which is why a patched firmware is the optimum solution (we can make sure that it will never reach the server under any circumstance by patching stbapp rather than the hosts file, so it will never find any of Infomir's servers that are hardcoded into it.)
I also was not able to see what data is transmitted to Infomir during this process, so I definitely favour going for a 100% guarantee that the connection can never reach them under any circumstances
If your a reseller or have the pro account with xtream then it looks like they have made custom firmware for mag boxes
