Start Updating slingbox

Updating slingbox

So this is the procedure I used to “change” the type to Exchange.

Luckily, the firmware updates for the NTV300 aren’t encrypted.

A binwalk scan of the firmware update image reveals a few firmware headers and two Squash FS images: DECIMAL HEX DESCRIPTION ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 63944 0x F9C8 Mediatek bootloader 111840 0x1B4E0 Mediatek bootloader 128133 0x1F485 LZMA compressed data, properties: 0x80, dictionary size: 1073741824 bytes, uncompressed size: 196608 bytes 293660 0x47B1C JFFS2 filesystem data little endian, JFFS node length: 8195 410769 0x64491 LZMA compressed data, properties: 0x02, dictionary size: 8388608 bytes, uncompressed size: 1073741824 bytes 410793 0x644A9 LZMA compressed data, properties: 0x02, dictionary size: 8388608 bytes, uncompressed size: 1073741824 bytes 410817 0x644C1 LZMA compressed data, properties: 0x02, dictionary size: 8388608 bytes, uncompressed size: 1073741824 bytes 428064 0x68820 u Image header, header size: 64 bytes, header CRC: 0x2023172F, created: Tue Oct 16 2012, image size: 1896744 bytes, Data Address: 0x DA00000, Entry Point: 0x DA00000, data CRC: 0x FD61E493, OS: Linux, CPU: ARM, image type: OS Kernel Image, compression type: none, image name: 429156 0x68C64 LZMA compressed data, properties: 0x87, dictionary size: 250216448 bytes, uncompressed size: 14786800 bytes 445513 0x6CC49 gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Sun Oct 14 2012, max compression 4182784 0x3FD300 Squashfs filesystem, little endian, version 4.0, compression: gzip, size: 76854395 bytes, 905 inodes, blocksize: 131072 bytes, created: Tue Oct 16 2012 30793205 0x1D5DDF5 PNG image, 133 x 133, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced 70987253 0x43B2DF5 JFFS2 filesystem data little endian, JFFS node length: 102880 72970663 0x45971A7 PNG image, 240 x 204, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced 73055216 0x45ABBF0 PNG image, 240 x 204, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced 73172060 0x45C845C PNG image, 240 x 204, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced 73261506 0x45DE1C2 PNG image, 240 x 204, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced 73386095 0x45FC86F PNG image, 240 x 204, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced 73436271 0x4608C6F PNG image, 240 x 204, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced 78240759 0x4A9DBF7 PNG image, 780 x 870, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced 81538240 0x4DC2CC0 Squashfs filesystem, little endian, version 4.0, compression: gzip, size: 17109954 bytes, 326 inodes, blocksize: 131072 bytes, created: Thu Oct 4 2012 98651328 0x5E14CC0 PNG image, 1280 x 720, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced 98675264 0x5E1AA40 PNG image, 720 x 480, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced While the firmware update does not appear to contain a complete file system, most of the interesting stuff appears to be in the first Squash FS image.

Open ELEC applies the "just enough operating system" principle.

It is designed to consume relatively few resources and to boot quickly from flash memory.

The first-generation Xtreamer Ultra uses Nvidia Ion chipset with a 1.80 GHz Dual-Core Intel Atom D525 CPU, while the Xtreamer Ultra 2 uses discrete Ge Force GT 520M graphics with a 2.13 GHz Dual-Core Intel Atom D2700 CPU.

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a service we offer sellers that lets them store their products in Amazon's fulfillment centers, and we directly pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.

Builds are currently available for x86-64 systems (as "Generic Build"), Raspberry Pi, Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi 3 and the first generation Apple TV.

On 5 February 2013, Open ELEC announced that they had jointly developed, with Arctic, a manufacturer of computer cooling systems based in Switzerland, a passively cooled entertainment system – the MC001 media centre, based on the Kodi 12 (Open ELEC 3.0) platform.

They also announced plans to provide further builds for the ARCTIC MC001 systems on their next release.

Pulse-Eight sells both custom and off the shelf hardware products primarily designed for Kodi, such as remote controls, HTPC systems and accessories, including a HTPC PVR set-top-box pre-installed with Kodi that they call "Pulse Box" Xtreamer Ultra and Xtreamer Ultra 2, manufactured by the South Korean company Unicorn Information Systems, are nettops based on Nvidia graphics and Intel Atom processors and pre-installed Open ELEC and Kodi software.

Is staying safe from hackers while using public Wi Fi hotspots important to you?
