    Check out post 4905 wooshbuild thread in case it's your ip causing it.

    Hello

    Yesterday my box went into boot on its own and stayed like that. It doesn't even start to count. It just says boot. When I try to reflash it, the new version of wooshbuild goes to FLSH then starts to go between FLSH and BOOT. And old version of wooshbuild goes to FLSH for a few seconds then back to and stays on BOOT.

    Can anyone help or has my Zgemma packed in?

    You need to format the usb with fat32 before you start
    and you may need to try a different usb as a lot of people end up trying four or five before they find one that works

    what error message are you getting?

    you posted in the wooshbuild support thread last November that these same 3 usb sticks wouldn't flash wooshbuild and you had to revert back to an older build.
    Have you tried a no frills version of openatv as suggested earlier?

    In that case, it's not the builds.
    It's highly unlikely to be the box.
    You need a new usb stick
