This normally happens when you use flashwizard to flash your image. Sometimes it does not initialize the box properly. It is because existing image installed in your box preventing it. You have 2 options. Do a image flash again using flashwizard or use DreamUp with a null modem cable. As advised by George better to use DreamUp and null modem cable since it is a recommended by most image developers.

Few tips about this image.
- It's a stable and a very robust image
- CCcam and GBOX both working
- Only issue is it has limited /var space. So keep it mind when you install something to the box

The image towards which U are pointing is creating some problems on some DM & vice versa. As far as ur question is concern just visit Nabilo images section of Dream Box 500 in maldiviandigital U will get ur answer

Press yellow button in your remote. Then you find "install" option assigned to a button. (can't remember yellow or blue). Go to Cam install section and install cccam and gbox.

Sorry don't have a backup at this point. What you can do is using the blue panel select gbox package separately and save it, select cccam package and save it. After that when ever you select a channel darkstar will change cams automatically.

One option is appearing because in original image there is no such facility available to run both CCCAM+G-Box @ the same time @ the moments there is only one image backup available which was posted by Farhan Awan few months back in maldivian forum. And I am wondering if U still want to use backup image then why U install original image?:p?:b<
