this guide really is intended to help people learn how to flash a blade bm7000 box and enter their c line. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DOWNLOAD OR USE THIS TUTORIAL ON OTHER FORUMS. ok whats required is a usb memory stick like here is an example of a usb memory stick if your buying a new one it doesnt have to be an expensive one or one with lots of memory an inexpensive 2gb stick will do ,and you need to download the blade bm7000s firmware to it . you can download the firmware by clicking on the first link of my signature area then click on blade and then download the firmware ,the links in my signature are near the bottom of all my posts or pms .you will also need to connect your box to your broadband router and to do this you can connect it direct using an ethernet cable or you can use devices such as homeplugs. at this point i will assume that your box is connected to your router ,now the firmware can come in whats called a rar file or a zip file so you will need to unrar or unzip (open) the file ,to do this you need a program like peazip or winrar (or you may have your own program of choice to do this )you can download either winrar or peazip from link number one of my signature area,i reccomend peazip its very good and reasonably user friendly. now with the frmware on your usb memory stick and unrared/unzipped stick the usb memory stick into the usb slot on the blade bm7000s (make sure the box is switched off when doing this to avoid damaging either the box or usb memory stick )now switch the box on .as with any new box or with any box that has just been flashed The first time you plug in and switch it on your box it may have to be setup so obviously you would set your language /date and time etc ,but usually you can come back and reset these settings so dont worry if you think you put in some thing wrong . so from here press the Menu button and go to Utilities,and then choose download and press the OK button. now you should see the firmware you downloaded to your usb memory stick in the file list . select the Firmware in file list and then press the ok button and the image should be sent into your box .when that happens you should see some thing like this.
