Of course for me no problem but....
Sending/resending/chip cost does not cover the value of the box, it may even become more expensive than buying a new box.

Cloud-ibox4 by Johnny

I've bought a defective cloud-ibox4 which has the famous red led issue and it was simply to repair by replacing the nand flash chip, but later more about this.

In any case now it works I had the opportunity to see if I could modify it to work with the VuJ chip, and thus removed the old security chip from the print side, added two wires on the Scl/Sda circuits and build a socket for it to easily plugin the VuJ board.

Later I will make a good instructions drawing for it, but for now I can tell that this box perfectly works on the VuJ chip. Uploaded the openpli original duo file, did some online upgrades, tested the card readers etc, and it still works fine. In any case, I have here some pictures from it, have fun..

In any case, the VuJ chip will work on these motherboard, I have the same board tested with it.
Further to determine if you have a security chip issue, or a bricked nand flash chip can be seen when you connect the box to the serial port, and using a terminal program as Putty, or Hyperterminal.
The output from it should give the answer.

When you get no output, then you should use the jtag method to see if you can bring back the nand flash chip back to life.

If your solo2 has no issues, then it has no sense to modify it to the VuJ chip.

Seems to me not related to the security chip, but it could be related due the nand flash chip.
Maybe to many bad blocks.

Hi, I am also interested for a friend - he actually purchased the Japhar chip (order 501) . Will he be able to install new images with latest drivers or he still needs to use Lorinsun v4 drivers ?

The upgrade we do with VU J allows to use original images on VU+ Solo / Duo / Uno and all the clones for these models. About the Solo2 you need also to get the FPGA security improved but at the minimum you will be able to use V4 images (with V4 drivers).

Can he update FPGA using the tool vuplus released in the past ?
Or he will get an error as following.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWy5eUhcsEQ

Would be good if you continue researching a solution for this,
otherwise the point of updating the chip is not interesting.

One who destroys a Lorinsun nowadays can buy an original much cheaper.

This Video from Youtube is from an Original VU+ Solo2 Box.

The update seems to come from the drivers themself, a guy posted this on the video comments.

"Same problem, so u have to flash it with BH 2.09"

FYI, our Security solution with VU J Board or chip, has nothing to do with the Original box. The original box needs to be fixed by the software VU+ Released or by VU+ themself. Our chip in no way can be installed on an original VU+ Solo2 (VU J board is for Clones only).

For VU+ Solo2 Clones, all methods are known to fix the kill/bomb. The Flash chip needs to be replaced and the VU+ Security chip needs to be at the latest version (V4 or be our VU J Chip) and the FPGA properly updated. Then you can use the V4 images for Solo2 Clones.

I need to clarify some things about this project. I know what is possible and what is not possible with lorinsun clones updated to v4. The drivers released for v4 are actually reversed engineered by removing the actual checks for the original Actel chip and replaced those with something basic compatible with X card and Actel which was first hacked/cloned.
This is not easy I understand, but if you have proper tools to clone an updated vusolo2 actel chip - you only need to extract the seed key , in theory you should be able to upgrade the clones Actel chips the same as vuplus is doing with originals.
I have been helping out some friends who bought this box since v1. The video was an example, I would expect similar result if one tries to update the FPGA to latest provided by vuplus and thus give HW error. I have not tried this yet.
The update occurs by fpga_directc.ko which is found in extra folder.

Another tidbit:
Code:
elif info == "solo2":
		fwlist= [
			 ("fpga", _("FPGA"))
			,("fp", _("Front Processor"))
			]
		fwdata= { 
			 "fpga" : ["http://archive.vuplus.com/download/fpga", "fpga.files", "/dev/fpga_dp;/dev/misc/dp;"]
			,"fp"   : ["http://archive.vuplus.com/download/fp", "fp.files", "/dev/bcm_mu;"]
			} 


The fpga update files are located on vuplus server. Most probably the fpga_directc.ko is creating the interface to update the Actel.

Why not try to clone an Actel from Sunray or Meelo - this being the latest knockoff.

Thanks for your answers
