MED500X / MED400X --- V4.06 -- 27 April 2014

Important: If you using Firmware v4.0.5 - 30 November 2011 then there is no need to update firmware. V4.06 -- 27 April 2014 fixes a hardware problem that very few may encounter and has no other fixes or new functionality.

ChangelogV4.06 -- 27 April 2014
1) Fixed 'Unknown Hardware! The firmware can't work!' message

If you do not have a unrar program you can download Free program Rarzilla

IF THE UPDATE DOES NOT WORK AND YOU ONLY GET THE E8E SPLASH SCREEN THEN YOU NEED TO UPDATE THE BOOTLOADER

Download 0017L_bootloader_patch.rar
0017L_bootloader_patch.rar
0017L_bootloader_patch.zip

   a) Download 0017L_bootloader_patch.rar
       b) Unrar/unzip the file 0017L_bootloader_patch.rar or 0017L_bootloader_patch.zip  and you will find 2 files inside.
         install.img and install.dat
   b) Copy these files to the root of a USB drive
   c) Install via Emergency Procedure.
      --- On the first stage you will see the patch install on the screen
      --- then the Mede8er will reboot
      --- Next you will see BETA2 install on screen and a yellow box after half of progression bar stating it has to reboot
      --- then another reboot
      --- then again it starts to install BETA2 and finishes with install complete and reboots

THE PROCESS IS NOT COMPLETE SO PLEASE CARRY ON

   d) Delete the two files install.dat / install.img on the USB stick
   e)  Download and Unrar the file Mede8er_V4.0.5_30_November2011 and copy the install.img to the root of the USB stick.
   f) Update the Mede8er in the normal way via Emergency procedure

Please be patient as the update from 17L is much longer that the normal firmware update. Also if  the install does not complete then we suggest you download this utility  
http://www.chip.de/downloads/HP-USB-Disk-Storage-Format-Tool_23418669.html
and format your USB Stick and then try again.

Emergency Installation Procedure

 - Download the latest Firmware from the Mede8er website;
 - Unzip the file i.e. install.img;
 - Copy this file to the root directory of a Flash Drive;
 - Plug the flash drive into the Mede8er;
 - Disconnect the power jack at the rear of the Mede8er then plug it back in;
 - Now press the on/off button (on Mede8er unit - not remote) - keep it pressed in for 10 seconds and then release;
 - After +- 15sec the LED on the front fascia of the Mede8er with flash red-blue;
 - You will get a progress bar on your TV display (some TV's will not display this);
 - Wait until the Mede8er re boots itself +/- 90 sec;
 - Your Mede8er is now updated;
 - Re-boot once by pulling power and use as normal;

xxxx WARNING - DO NOT REMOVE POWER DURING THE UPDATE PROCESS xxxxx
