To flash Octagon SFX6008 or SFX6018 you need a USB stick with a minimum 2GB formatted in FAT32.
Download the latest OpenBh image 5.1x Octagon SFX6008 (both boxes use the same image).

If you want to update one of the multiboot slots:
  • Copy openbh* multi.zip in the root folder of your usb stick formatted
  • Plug the USB stick into the USB port on the rear.
  • Power on the box and press and hold the standby button on the remote at the same time until "Updt" is displayed.
  • Select "Usb Multiboot image upgrade" from TV screen menu.
  • Select the flash image. If it doesn't appear double check you named it correctly (something like openbh-5.1.011.release-sfx6008-sfx6018_********_multi.zip)
  • Choose the flash slot to update
  • The Box will tell you when the update is completed.

If you have bricked the box or you just need to fully wipe the flash:
  • Unpack openbh*recovery.zip into the root folder of your usb stick and copy the openbh* multi.zip to the root of the usb.
  • Turn off the box.
  • Plug the USB stick into the USB port at the rear.
  • Power on the box and press and hold the standby button and power on the box until "Updt" is displayed.
  • Select "Recovery From USB" from TV screen menu.
  • Now follow the steps above and flash the image to slot 1 (if you skip this step some functions of the box may not work correctly).

Don't worry if you don't have a usb stick with you. If your SFX6008 / 6018 is connected to your network via ethernet, you can use Network Image Update function and choose our image and which slot to flash it too.
