The short lived, much hyped OpenViX Zeus is no more, after only 4 weeks, its been binned. But, have no fear OpenViX lovers, as OpenViX Helios is here instead.
We are not too sure what the differences are, and just like with the switch from OpenViX 3.0 to Zeus, all thats being said is that its ‘behind the scenes changes’ (insert conspiracy theories here)
So, in the software section, youll find the new Helios, which is the same as the old Zeus, which was the same as the older 3.0
Openvix Zeuse images are now officially available. We have been playing with these for a while, and the end user experience is the same as openvix 3.0, but, this will be the only vix firmware to receive updates in the future, so if you want to continue to use ViX, youll have to update. The bootloaders will need to be updated as per the last blog post, but, all images are available from the software tab at the top of the page
The OpenATV 4.0 images have been available for a while, and recently popping up in random places, is the vix4 (OpenVix Zeus) image, but untill now, bootloaders were unavailable for these images to work properly. We are just about to upload bootloaders that have been tested, and work, on both the OpenATV 4.0 image, and the OpenVix Zeus images.
Only use these bootloaders if you are intending on using one of these newer images, as you will not be able to boot into an existing PLi based, or Openvix3.0 image after flashing these, unless you reflash with an older bootloader.
As usual with this type of update, use at your own risk. We killed 2 receivers before finding this working software (which also brought them back to life)
Check the software tab above for the file
A major problem has occured on ALL 4D images prior to Feb 2nd 2014. The URL used for the image to connect to the download server has changed, with no possible way of changing it back. While this does not affect the use of the image, or the way it functions with any manually installed plugins, you are now unable to download plugins from the images plugin server, unless you either update the plugin, or manually edit the files that control how the receiver connects to plugin sources, other ‘fixes’ may become available. We have been aware of this issue for a few days, but wanted to exhaust every option to resolve it before announcing it. Heres a tutorial for those who simply want to carry out the manual edits required
How to fix 4D plugin bug
Theres been some updates to the source code for these 2 as yet unreleased receivers, the first updates for wuite a while. From these updates, we can see that new drivers have been created today, and that they will be running the linux kernel 3.9.7. These are based on the same Broadcom BCM7356 dual core processor that the Vu+ Solo² and other newer receivers now use.
More info will follow as we find it
