Coolstream Emergency Tool for HD1
--------------------------

Windows prog when times go kernel filesystem or broken

To Upgrade your Coolstream receiver please copy mtd1.img (kernel) and mtd2.img (filesystem) on USB STICK (must be FAT32 Formated).
Insert USB STICK in Coolstream USB Port, connect serial Cable between PC and Coolstream STB, and start the program on your Windows PC following the Instructions to update Kernel and/or Filesystem.

Note: If the Update doesnt succeed just change to another USB STICK, maybe this one you have is not supported by our bootloader! Or
just push serial/usb debug button and check output.
