Hi, i'm new to this site, but not new to vu boxes, i wanted to try a backup image, my question is do you need the base image on the box to put a backup image on it? for example if it was open blackhole would i need that image on the box first?

IF you want to keep what you already have & simply want to try out other images, be they backup images or base images then OMB or Neoboot is the way to go.

I have now used openmultiboot to put openblackhole image on my box, no problems with that, but can't seem to do the same with a backup image i wanted to try, in the plugin i press green to install the image but i get a message saying cannot deflate image, any idea about that?

Unzip the archive on your PC. Then zip up the vuplus folder again. Reupload & it will then work.

The archives Multiboot uses must be zipped like this. Not rar file either.

Thanks for reply, not sure how to do that though, still a bit vague about some things.
