�� All pinouts and Repair procedures are described in Software manuals ("Help" button in Software).

How to Repair box firmware, if box not detected by PC and Box status in Octoplus Pro JTAG Software is “Not connected” after firmware updating.


To repair box firmware, do the next:
  1. Disconnect all Boxes and other devices from PC.
  2. Run the Octoplus Pro JTAG Software.
  3. Open Control Panel -> Device Manager.
  4. Open (disassemble) Medusa Pro box.
  5. Connect the box to PC via USB cable.
  6. Heat up IC U6 (smaller square MCU) on PCB using hot air gun or soldering iron at 100 C (215 F) for a few seconds till “libusb-win32 devices / HSJTAG V0x100” device appears in PC Device Manager and Box status in Octoplus Pro JTAG Software becomes “Connected”. Also LED’s will start blinking at that moment.

  7. Go to “Welcome” tab in Octoplus Pro JTAG Software and press “Update Box Firmware” button.
  8. Box firmware should be updated to version 1.13.

Note! After repairing box firmware you shouldn’t use previous versions of Octoplus Pro JTAG Software, please always use the latest actual software version.

Note! Tampering seals to repair box won't void your box warranty.

Yes, this is written in manual above:
Quote:
5. Connect the box to PC via USB cable.
6. Heat up IC...
You should see, whether Box status is again connected, to stop heating.

This is architecture bug (undoccumented feature), most likley, not HW bug. Hope, we have bypassed it with 1.13 firmware version.
