Convert Normal Montage Software to K5S / Hellobox Software and back

Convert Normal Montage Software to K5S / Hellobox Software

In this post I will show you how you can easily convert a normal montage software into a K5S or Hellobox software.

This process is now easy because  Hellobox Team has provided an 8MB firmware which makes it easy to update via USB.

This upgrade process works in all 8MB Montage set top boxes and using this process you can convert a normal 8MB montage software to 4MB K5S or Hellobox software via USB only.

First you

1. Download the 8MB converter file. CLICK HERE

2. This file is a 8MB file and its name is flash.bin. Do not change its name. This 8MB firmware is common for all montage set top boxes.

3. Download the 4MB K5S or Hellobox firmware of your choice. I have already provided a lot of them in my blog so you can search and download them or download from somewhere else. Make sure the firmware remote works or you need to patch the remote.

4. File name of the 4MB K5S or Hellobox firmware should be auto_burn.fac

5. Format a USB pen drive and copy both the files flash.bin and auto_burn.fac in the pen drive

6. Attach the pen drive and switch on your set top box. Keep pression the MENU button from your remote until you see USB UPGRADE DO NOT POWER OFF written on your TV. Then stop pressing the remote.


 

7. First the flash.bin software will update and your box will restart. After restart it will automatically recognize the 4MB firmware and upgrade it.


 

8. After the upgrade process is complete remove the USB pen drive.



9. After removing the USB pen drive restart the box. It will start on the K5S or Hellobox Firmware.

Return Back to Original 8MB Firmware

 If you do not like 4MB K5S or Hellobox Firmware you can return back to 8MB firmware easily. You can follow the same steps if you are stuck at QR Code and want to return to original firmware.

1.  Rename the 8MB OEM firmware or original dump file to auto_burn.fac

2. Copy the file into USB pen drive after formatting the pen drive.

3. Insert the USB pen drive into box. 

4. The flashing will start automatically. Remove pen drive once you see FFFF on the display.

5. Restart the box.

QR Code to NO QR Code Firmware

If you are stuck on QR Code and want to use a firmware with NO QR Code follow the process below.

1.  Rename the NO QR Code firmware to auto_burn.fac

2. Copy the file into USB pen drive after formatting the pen drive.

3. Insert the USB pen drive into box. 

4. The flashing will start automatically. Remove pen drive once you see FFFF on the display.
