    Four Images on SF8008

    I have my SF8008 combo with preinstall 4 images, few day back, Slot1 Define, Slot 2 Open ATV, Slot 3 Hyperion 8, Slot 4 Open Pli 8.2, There is no SD card or USB attached. Is there any other Image in Flash or base Image ? How can I know ?

    This is not OpenMultiBoot plugin. All those images are in flash memory (based on your description). They are all base images and you pick which one to use.

    In the standby/restart menu, there is a multi boot image selection menu where you can see all the images.

    In OpenViX, when you long press Power button, you will get a menu including Multiboot selector ------> this allows you to delete (and if you make a mistake Restore that image)
    ..... most images have now copied this function into their images, but you will have to look at their menu's to find it.
    However, when you online flash a new image, you choose a slot and the image in that slot will be replaced by the new image.

    Again, in OpenViX press Blue button, ---> ViX ------------> BackupManager will backup your current settings which can be used to restore to current setup if you usb or online flash a new image. ImageMananger will allow you to backup current Image and flash a new image online.
    ------ some images do not include a capability to backup the existing image (although you can install a plugin to do this in some images), but most (if not all) will backup settings - again you need to look at Image menu's to find that option.

    If you refer to the instructions on the Openeight site by smokey, you can use an sd card to increase the possible images the SF8008 can boot from 4 to 16.
