RL of the DM 7080 HD

The Rescue Loader (short RL) is a part of the bootloader of the dreamboxes which use Dreambox OS. If the box is stopped in the Rescue Loader, a webinterface is available as before with the Secondstage Loader.

The Rescue Loader offers following functions:

  • Show device info
  • Flash new firmware
  • Backup the firmware
  • Online Recovery - the actual image from DMM can be loaded and installed directly over the internet.
