Hi I know how to d/l it but is there somewhere to tell how to use it and what exactly it does ?
Install as standard firmware update to perform a full system flush and reset. This is designed to assist recovery from crash/reboot loops and to clear everything out after running RMA mode.
Your recordings will not be affected.
NB: This will also clear most CFW package settings.
What more do you need...there is very little information about what it does
To be precise, it reformats the areas of flash used for persistent data like the schedule. There are two of these flash areas and they use the JFFS2 filesystem.
It's unaffected. The firmware update mechanism is hijacked to inject commands - there's no actual firmware update going on.after that do i have to do another CFW update, or is this unaffected by the system flush?
Restore your recording schedule from backup.what you need to do after it?
The USB is checked for an update file pre-boot, every boot.also if the system is cycling would it even pick up these files from my USB?
That sounds like the auto-schedule-restore process.it does two sets of humax logo/humax logo/green screen, then it makes the HD start up noise before going back to sleep.
