    The CFE image of Vu+ Solo is updated.

    The main difference from the old one is supporting the large size image more than 48MB.

    Please see the detailed explanation of update as below.

    1. Unzip the solo_cfe_2.0_usb.zip to USB stick. (There should be /vuplus/solo/cfe_cfe_auto.bin)
    2. Insert USB stick into the USB port of solo and power on the box.
    3. It takes just a few secs to update.
    4. If solo's front led blinks continuously, restart box.
    5. To proceed with image update, you should delete the cfe_cfe_auto.bin at /vuplus/solo in USB stick once bootloader update is finished.

    CFE update BEFORE installing new image.
    Once CFE flashed, remove USB key, erase all, put your image on usb key, flash image.

    How long did it take to flash img?

    Did you try to download img again, maybe it was corrupted

    Yes I downloaded different images like : 1.7.7 as well

    as regards the time of the image , it took the normal time it takes as when I reload the 1.6.7

    Just to be sure : in your post above you said : "3) i am formatting the USB and download on the USB the 1.7.8"

    I hope you did not put the .zip file on your usb key ?
    You must unzip the file on your PC and copy on the usb key the folder "vuplus"

    Is it what you have done ?

    sorry for the silly question that I am going to make. When extracting the CFE or the 1.7.8 , should I create manually the folder as : vuplus - solo ?

    Because when extracting ,these folders are created automatically ,

    Thanks

    You have to check to have this in your stick:
    /vuplus/solo/cfe_cfe_auto.bin

    Fat32 is the filesystem with which you formatted your usb stick.
    To be used to flash usb stick must be fat32 formatted,
