Installing MultiMiniBoot (mmboot) into our Dreamboxes

Important - set primary DNS manually !
Manual for versions from v1.31 and newer


1) Once more, before you start installing - 
please set primary DNS - you may think it's funny, you will be sure in short time - I was right.
On my dreambox setting of DNS looks like:
Enter into network settings:
 Menu > Setup > System > Network
Enter into for example: LAN connection - and OK
Go to:  Adapter settings - and OK
go to bottom - and then: Manual name server configuration  (DNS) - highlight
then use arrows on RC Left and Right > change to "True"
And set "Primary DNS ( Manual ) -  usually it's  IP of our Internet router - but not always:

Press OK - confirm - and here we are.
2) To verify if network is proper configured - run Telnet in DCC and type command:

opkg update 

and press <Enter>:


4) I'm setting one more thing in flash - to have in  <Standby/ Restart > - option  < Restart GUI > - setting Setup Mode to < Expert >
To do that, you have to go:
 Menu > Setup > System > Customize - and the first option is Setup Mode:



Press 
<Green> OK and you can see Restart GUI in  Menu > Standby / Restart

We don't need better configuration of Dreambox- I suspect you don't ever use flash image - neither do I. ##################################################################################################################################

If your usb ( pen ) is new - or formatted using windows, then do not mount pen.  Having  mmboot v1.31 or newer, we have already installed proper program to initialize pen in our dreambox - "eParted"

5) Let's go:
If you have already downloaded mmboot in
.zip - just extract it on our computer , to get package  mmboot-dreambox_1.xx_all.ipk - having .ipk extension.
Using ftp, transfer package into dreambox, into  /tmp/ directory - u can use  DCC-Editor



6) Press Menu > Setup > Software management >Install local extension > Internal Flash > Install extensions ---
-> Highlight mmboot and press Green  - Install
                               

                               

7) After restart - go to  Menu > Plugins -- and you can see mmboot.

                  

8) Go to MultiMiniBoot  plugin ( -> Menu -> Plugins -> MultiMiniBoot ) - and you can see :
( If you don't want to initialize usb (pen),go to 
18) - mounting or  24) Installing only mmboot  )



9) To format your pen ( in my example there is only pen - there is no HDD installed ) - highlight it and press < Green > :


10) If is there any partition, you have to delete it - pressing  < Red > ( if are there more partitions - delete them all, one after one ):


11) You have to confirm execution of deleting partitions  - by pressing  < Execute> :


12 ) and now press < Green > Start - after completion,  again < Green > Close:


13) Now you have to create partition by pressing  < Green > Add ( you can also see pen is clean Type:Free having 0MB) :


14) Choose filesystem type
( you can see ext4 in my example - what I recommend you( in 800hd-pvr you can choose ext3 only )) - and press < Green > OK:


15) again - you have to confirm execution by pressing  < Yellow > :


16) just one task  left  < Green > Start - execute formating ext4 - waiting for < Close > on green key - and close :
               

17) After closing  partition is  ext4 - to complete please press < Blue > Reboot Box :

18) After reboot go to -> Menu -> Setup -> System -> Storage Devices ( be careful - don't press Initialize ) - highlight the device and press OK:

19) Select (3) <Manually select the mount point> press OK:

20) Now < left arrow  > to set  < Enable partition automount? > to < yes > :

21) press arrow down to highlight  < Mountpoint > ( according to picture above ) and press OK - to see :

22) Highlight < usb > (according to your device) and press < Green > Save -> confirm once more by pressing < Green > Save - and press OK to use :

23) It should look similar to the picture:


24) 
You're ready to go to  -> Menu -> Plugins -> MultiMiniBoot  and complete installations of mmboot - selecting (in my example) </ media/usb or /media/cf or....> and pressing OK:
( in  the example I have chosen cf )

24a)   Info 1) you can use eParted (included in mmboot) later - by pressing in MultiMiniBoot < Menu > ; you can also enable/disable autouptade of mmboot there.
You can also format other devices like pendrive, hdd, cf sd etc..

#################################################################################################################################################
     Squashfs - applies dm800se i dm500hd only ! (  version1 of course)
25)  You can use that function but it's not necessary. However I recommend you usage in dm800se i dm500hd V1 by pressing  <Move squashfs to storage> - dreambox will become faster (booting as well as normal run)
To perform that operation go to -> MultiMiniBoot < Blue > Extensions and perform < Move Squashfs to storage >:
Attention - since starting that operation pendrive must stay inserted into dreambox - otherwise you will have to re-flash dreambox ( don't be afraid,  you         will not damage dreambox ):
               

After executing this function - mmboot will ask for restart - of course  push <Yes> - that reboot takes more time than normal - box will be restarted twice in the time of booting - summary time of whole operation (moving squashfs including restarts) is about 4-5 min. You have to just wait till dreambox will start form flash again.
This double restart is one time operation - just this time.

26) Now you're ready to install image into usb. goto  -> MultiMiniBoot  < Blue > Extensions - and you can choose one of them:

1 Download Experimental-Image
2 Download Merlin-
Image
3 Download Newnigma-Image
4 Download OpenPLi-Image
5-Download OpenATV-Image
6-Download OoZooN-Image
7-Download TS-Image
8-Download Dream-Elite-
Image
9-Download Dream-Elite-TEST-Image
10-MultiMiniBoot update
11-Install Wizard GP3 (when GP3 is installed - will be -> Install CamFedd for GP3)
12- Move Squashfs memory (only if available)

27) Highlight ; let say < Download Experimental-Image> and press OK - after downloading you will see < Execution finished > press  < OK > again  and you can install image by pressing < Green > Install image:
                               

28) You will see  
<Source Image file> - press arrow down to <Image Name>  ( arrow left or right will copy Source Image File to Image Name):


29) And just press
< Green > Install -> confirm by pressing  < Yes > and wait till dreambox will be rebooted and start on a new installed image.
               

30) Installing image takes from 1min - to even 8min, according to pendrive speed ( in my case, installing into noname pendrive in 800se took less than 3min. )

PS. for comparison: in dm8000 I have ssd 16gb and installing much more large image than 800se ( 100MB ) takes about 1min

have fun and enjoy - wish you as usual < mirmo - miromoni >

31) Attention!!!
On image installed into USB (pendrive) please don't mount pendrive again.
Pendrive has been already mounted (in the boot time) and there is no possibility to mount it again.

32) Using mmboot we can install GP3 Wizard on just installed fresh image just using remote controller.
To do that, press <Blue> Extensions -  into mmboot  - and select <Install GP3 Wizard>
Highlight it  - and press OK - confirm Restart GUI -Yes - Done
                                  

After restarting GUI - enter  
menu -> Plugins - and we have our Gemini3 Wizard - which can be immediately installed:
Select
- press OK  - confirm Yes and wait till Gemini-Plugin will be installed and ask for restart of Dreambox - Yes:
                

After reboot GP3 has been installed.

###########################################################################################################################

Backup

33) you can also perform backup - what mean exact copy of image - to do that press <Blue> Extensions and  <Green> Backup Image.
Select image for backup - and press OK - or <Green> - and confirm Yes
                                
                                

###########################################################################################################################

Restoring backup
34) In the same, simple way, you can restore backed-up image.
To do that, 
press <Blue> Extensions and <
Yellow> Restore Image( I mean restoring your Backup )
and next like installing a new image  (it takes a few seconds )
(We can also remove Backup here - Delete)
 
                                

Since 1.31 version  "MultiMiniBoot Update-Check" have been available - you can enable it or disable. To do that, enter MultiMiniBoot and press < menu > . You can also enter eParted there to initialize hdd, other pendrive, cf or sd.
