    well I'd thought I'd done that. Would you be able to point me to a place to download such a thing please? Cause everything I've found so far has been junk.

    Well yes I presumed that. Finding the firmware is another matter no one ever posts a link even on the guides.

    When the Amikos came out there was a link to the firmware on the guide but a few months later the firmware began
    to brick boxes for no reason at all, I can only assume the newer batch of boxes had been changed in some way.

    So the link was taken down.

    All I can suggest is that you flash the latest version you can find.

    I've sent you the details in the PM on where to find the firmware, make sure the firmware is for the correct model of box.

    They are box specific.

    AMIKO_MiniHD_SE_2.3.96_emu.zip 23-09-2016

    It's on the site I gave you mate, I've just seen it in the Amiko section

    You need to join the site to be able to download it.

    I'm not putting it on here because of the issues I had with previous firmware.

    Hi Bees.

    Ive been able to unbrick on of these boxes before with rs232 and an old laptop. The box I have now has a constant green light and nothing showing on front display. Different from the one I unbricked before...! Have you any experience of a constant green light from power on? Doesnt seem to want to reflash using bootloader?

    Hope it helps

    Has anyone ever experienced their line dropping constantly?
    I have the Amiko mini hd combo and I have to re scan for channels every few minutes.
    Once I do this they're all fine but 5 mins later it freezes and no connection to the cline.

    any suggestions are welcome.

    Hi guys I'm having issues with an amiko mini t2. It was bought already set up and worked for a year... i got a new line and put it on as per the directions on the post and it seemed to be working grand....only issues I'm having are sky sport HD 1 and sky sport HD 2 are not working. The sd channels of these are working.. the channels are working using the same server on another box. I'm not used to the amiko at all so any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi mkdon what bootloader tool are you using? You will need to use firmware for chipset 3612 and no others as it won't work, can you confirm you are using that boot tool?

    Hi, Can anyone point me in the direction of getting a Sat line please? The request threads I found seem to have been closed.
    Need a C Line(I think) for an Amiko mini combo in Southern Ireland.
    24hr test line to try out first if possible.
    Please PM me, Thanks!

    If anyone needs a recovery system for the Amiko Combo just thought i'd post this :D

    If you flash your receiver using the RS232 recovery method, this will help you restore your receiver to default meaning no passwords installed!

    Here is a guide I created for a mini combo but most of the Amiko closed sources are similar so this should help you all round :)

    I have attached here.


    Many thanks
