    Skybox f5 help

    I have a skybox f5 i assume its a clone sn:SBDHF5V130302963
    It was ok until I tried to update the firmware via usb.

    Now the box has crashed, it boots up until 93 and then e001 appears on front display.

    I have tried various firmware to make it boot up right but not yet found a software to match the box.

    any help most welcome.

    these can be repaired with a clone firmware but must be done via RS232 which would require either a PC/Laptop with an RS232 connector and a null modem lead the software loader is available from either the official site or the clone ones

    There is support out there but it is not the quality that you are used to on here! for stunning value. I use 2 of them. No idea whether they are clones or not but have worked faultlessly for months.
