How to flash a VU+ Solo4K

What you need before we start: 
1) A USB stick formatted to FAT32. (Preferably genuine Kingston and no larger than 8GB in size to prevent compatibility issues while flashing the image).
2) Image of your choice.
3) Compression software such as 7zip.

4) HP Format tool (not essential but recommended). 5) Teracopy (not essential but recommended).
For this tutorial we will be using OpenViX 4.2, which can be downloaded from
1. Format a USB stick to FAT32.
2. Download the image of your choice and extract it to your desktop.
3. Open the folder you extracted to your desktop, for example , you will see another folder named vuplus, this is the image file. Copy the entire vuplus folder directly to the root of your USB stick.

Flashing the Receiver.
1) Power off the receiver
2) Ensure no other USB devices are plugged into the receiver while flashing.
3) Insert the USB stick containing the image files into one of the USB ports on the receiver, rear USB port is advised if possible.
4) Power the receiver on.
5) As your Solo4K starts to power up you should see a update prompt on the receivers display asking you to press the power button, at this point you press the power button which is located behind the flap on the front of the receiver. 6) The receivers display will display various stages of flashing, simply wait for this to complete.
7) If successful the receiver will reboot itself after the flashing process has completed.
8) Remove USB stick that contains the images files.

The flashing process should take approximately two to four minutes to complete, while the receiver is being flashed, it is important that you DO NOT power the receiver down for any reason as this can cause serious and or permanent damage.
If the receiver bypasses the flash files on the USB stick and boots into the existing image instead you may need to check that the file structure is correct on the USB stick or try formatting the USB stick using the above mention HP Format tool or try and alternative USB stick.
