Remove Modified Firmware
Why would I want to do this?
The Modified or Custom Firmware package is regarded as very safe to install and use, However, users feel safer installing ‘non standard’ firmware with the knowledge that it is possible to get back to the ‘Out of the Box’ configuration, Maybe when sending the unit back to the Supplier for example.
Prepare for Return to Manufacturer (RMA)
Custom Firmware version 2.13 onward has a built-in option called Return to Manufacturer (RMA) mode to allow for complete removal of custom firmware components from the internal hard disk. From the Web Interface Menu select >> Diagnostics >> Set-Return-to-manufacturer (RMA) Mode. Once done (there are several confirmation steps), restart your box and it will show 'RMA' on the front panel. This confirms that all custom firmware components have been removed from the internal hard disk. Now install a version of official firmware (See Note below), the box will be back to a standard unmodified unit and the 'RMA' message should be removed, if the message is still displayed after installing the official firmware, there is a USB plug-in procedure DeRMA to remove it, (Notes HERE)
Note :- The non Custom Firmware version of 1.03.06 will not remove the RMA message, if 1.03.06 is required you must install official 1.02.32 first and then install the non Custom Version of 1.03.06 afterwards, however if this is done the firmware will not be exactly the same as the supplied version of 1.03.06, because of this the recommendation is to send the unit back with 1.02.32 as this has been downloaded from the official Humax site and downgrading the unit is permissible
Reset the Custom Firmware Environment
Custom Firmware version 2.13 onward has a built-in option to allow for a complete reset of the custom firmware environment. From the Web Interface Menu select >> Diagnostics >> Remove all custom firmware packages and settings. Once done (there are several confirmation steps), restart your box and it will be back to a clean slate as if the custom firmware had just been installed. Use a web browser to connect to the IP address of the Humax and then follow the instructions to install the initial web interface and supporting packages.
Reset the Custom Firmware Environment when the Web Interface is broken
If the web interface is not working properly and you wish to reset the custom firmware environment, then it can be done via the telnet interface. Connect to the Humax using Telnet and you will be presented with a telnet menu. Select the Run a diagnostic option and then use setrma as the diagnostic name. NB: This requires Internet connectivity to work properly.
If Internet access is not available, select cli from the Telnet Menu and then enter the following at the Command Line prompt :-
touch /var/lib/humaxtv_backup/.rma reboot
Re-Install Official Software
After the 'Return to Manufacturer' is completed download and install the current Official Humax Software, Notes HERE
