Firmware downgrade without GUI

I recently upgraded the firmware from r8829 to r10062, the screen "update success" appeared but after system restarts the device hangs with "Icy Box multimedia player" splash screen. I tried a lot of times to restart the system but it hangs always here or after here with a black screen.

Is there a method to downgrade the firmware to the previous one without entering the GUI? I tried the procedure written on the manual but it does not work:

1) unlink the power cable;
2) insert a USB pendrive with the r8829.img on it;
3) keep the power button pressed;
4) link the power cable to the device;
5) keep the power button pressed for 5-10 seconds;

But the upgrade/downgrade process does not start.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Firmware downgrade without GUI

Hello Qoobox,

if the USB method does not work, you can try it with a SD-Card.
It is important, that the Firmware is the only data on the
USB-Drive / SD-Card.
