This file is for recovering your Viark Combo when it refuses to boot up.

I have not used this so cannot confirm it works, but it did come from a reliable source.

I don't have the combo but do have other Viark receivers.

How to fix boot problem on #ALI box ?

This problem will occur if you update the box with invalid software or power failure when updating
Follow the steps:

1 - Rename last software to "Ali_update" & Put to USB.

2 - Connect the USB to the box.

3 - Connect electricity to the box and press the power button at the same time.

4 - Release the power button when the device starts updating and wait for the update to finish.

Enjoy it

Hi, your PM box is full. No I've also never had problems with the combo & any recovery I've read about has been done with a null modem cable & the sw that dog-man has posted.

You might need a rs232 to usb adapter on PC end.
I had to do that back in the days when I needed to program cards.

Hi all, maiden post here.

I have had no probs with my box, installed 1.02 out of the box and all fine.....however....

I selected the 'Update' from the UI, then on the selections on the right hand list I seen an update for the .bin file (the top selection), clicked on it and it dowloaded a file.....must have been a decent size, it took 5 mins or so to download on fast d/l spped.

The said file installed and the the set needed to reboot.....it is now stuck in a boot loop with the last commands on screen before it self reboots itself reading as follows:

Supported API:3

--Wiping data...
Formatting /data...
Formatting /cache...
Data wipe complete.
reset baseperam...
Rebooting...

I would be really obliged if any kind/educated soul could help please....I hope I haven't bricked it. I have tried the above fix and it made no difference :(

Many thanks in advance.

PORT RS232


1. Connect the PC and the receiver with the RS232 cable, with the receiver without turning it on.

2. Open the "ALIUP. Exe" tool on the PC, choose the COM port that corresponds to each one.

3. Press "Open" to select the correct firmware, select it where you saved it and press "Open".

4. Now the file appears in the "File" menu of the program.

5. Press "Start" and then turn the receiver on to power.

6. In the "Download" menu of the program starting to move a progress bar. When the process is finished, after several minutes, the receiver will reboot.

7. Disconnect the RS232 cable and turn off the receiver's power and turn it on again after 5 seconds.

8. The receiver must be restored.

9. If the process is interrupted at any time or an error message appears in the program, start again at point one and, if necessary, choose the different COM port in the program.
