Mods please delete if not allowed...

After exstensive diagnosis and attempted fixes I have come to the conclusion that my zgemma box needs JTAGing. So does anyone recommend a place? Happy to accept a PM.

I have tried numerous flash pens that I know work but can I get this box to boot up properly. No I can't!
The image successfully flashes but on reboot of completion I just gett boot message on front display.
So frustrating. The usb pens are working as I can flash other boxes with the,

Your money will be mine then :)
Seriously, I have tried everything to get this box booting up properly to no avail. I have done so many flashes that I have lost count.
The box detects USB , starts the FLSH procedure and then upon reboot it stuck with 'boot' message on box display...

But all the luck getting it sorted

My word is my bond.

Thanks, but only JTAG is the next option but cost effective to purchase a new one.

I thought jtagging just allowed you to write a new bootloader when the existing is corrupted?
By the sounds of it the bootloader is okay but there is a problem with the mainboard possibly?

I'm no expert on this though and could be entirely wrong.
Just don't want you chucking good money away.

i know, going to possibly flog it as faulty. I think you're right, it could be motherboard. It's not the usb sticks as used them on same mode of box and worked ok....

No, it's somewhere in my garage lol. It's definitely the box, not usb stick issue. sometimes you just have to write things off and this is a casing example. zgemma by name, cr*p by nature in my opinion :)
