I would mount a USB or hdd so it uses the hdd or usb memory instead of internal memory

Do you have putty if so go onto putty type your box ip address in press connect it will say login as type root then press enter then enter this command wget -O ~/fla.sh http://flashmybox4.me && bash fla.sh

Yes mate i have putty i have flashed zgemma star s and 2s boxes for years also technomate been doing satellite stuff for 18 years and IPTV since its arrival. This issue with the new i55 was a full memory my box to flicker after trying to install TSmedia from that point my box froze on the openatv splash screen so i tried to re flash box until i realized the memory was full. I ftp to the receiver via filezilla removed tsmedia from extensions and bobs your uncle it freed it up and now works fine, thanks for all your help and support much appreciated

so if i have this right, you can leave a usb or external HDD in the USB port and use that as memory for the machine? i think there is a card holder on the back for extra memory ?

i have a spare fat32 32gb usb stick i'll use that , is there a process to set it up?

  • Setup -> System -> Storage Device -> Initialisation -> YOUR USB DEVICE -> Red Button.
    Once the initialisation has completed, hold the power button on remote until a menu appears and select Restart Gui.
  • Step 3 : Make sure the storage device is mounted correctly by pressing the RED button on the remote and selecting Plugins -> Mount ManagerYour storage device should be listed and should say Mount: /media/hdd.
    If it does just press the exit button until you exit the menus, if it doesn't press the Green button to Setup Mounts and using the Left/Right arrows on the remote change the mount until /media/hddis selected and press the Green button to save. Answer yes if prompted to restart the box.

Anyone able to help here, I’m running i55 plus on whoosh, I made a complete backup of my image and flashed to other box’s before, Iv now updated a couple of things and made a new complete back up , swapped the files to a usb but it won’t flash to any box’s now. Can’t remember if I had to take some of the files and add them to an open ATV file for it to work last time .

Not sure that images taken like this work now with wooshbuild infinity, few other users having similar issues.
for the time it takes, maybe better, (and quicker) to flash WBI and add the updates you want manually each time

i don't know but others have had problems trying to use backups to flash boxes with, maybe easier to flash each one seperately.
if you flashe new WBI and add the extras, make a backup and try it, it either works or it doesn't, if not, you'll have to do the other boxes one by one
