You will not be able to open the file as it is. You have to install the firmware from within the router configuration page. Access the router like 'http://192.168.x.x' and then find where it says firmware upgrade, locate the downloaded file from your PC and then upload it.
Let me know.
Thanks

How do i update the firmware for the VP8870? Ive already downloaded the zip file. All my video files suddenly disappeared! Anyone know why?


While performing firmware update all data will be erased !
See the manual on page 36:
Vosonic VP8870 manual

The firmware update for the player is PMP.VP8870-1.0.0.B2.mtg :
Since you've downloaded the zip file, were you able to unpack it with
Winzip op Winrar ?
When using XP you can unpack by:
1. [Right click on the zip file] Open with > Compressed maps [left click on Compressed maps]
2. The next screen shows the opened zip file. On the left side the
folder task manager can be opened ( Folders / Maps in the top bar not selected): "Unzip all files" : follow up the Windows unzip wizard and
remember the location of the files.

How to do the firmware update is explained in the pdf file "How to update 1.0.0-B2 - VP8870 .pdf", added to the firmware update in the
zip file.
Remember:
While performing firmware update all data will be erased !

Downgrade iPhone 4, 3GS from iOS 4.0.2 to 4.0.1 Without SHSH Blobs Saved [Update...


Download iOS 4.0.1 ipsw from here.
Extract it with WinRAR or WinZip to a folder on the desktop. You may need to rename the firmware file from .ipsw to .zip to do this.
Open the buildmanifest.plist with the Notepad if you are on Windows, or TextWrangler if you are on Mac.
Search and replace all – 8A306 with 8A400. Save. Repeat the same with the file restore.plist.
Download iOS 4.0.2 ipsw from here and open this with WinRAR or WinZip.
Note: Do not extract it. Just open it and leave it open. You must use this exact file and not create a new one. If you have to create a new one for reasons like you are on OS X, then use zip command line not explorer or finder to make the zip. I will assume you are using the original file opened in WinRAR for the rest of this guide.
Take all the files from iOS 4.0.1 and drag them over to the iOS 4.0.2 zip archive that you have open.
Delete all the .dmg files that have 002 at the end, leaving only the 001 files left.
Save the archive, and rename it back to .ipsw if you changed the name to get WinRAR/WinZip to open it.
Put the device in DFU
Now simply open iTunes and restore the firmware you changed.
This is it, you should now be able to jailbreak and unlock your device on iOS 4.0.1 with JailbreakMe

LG VX 9600 Versa Firmware Upgrade

4444cd9.jpg

Follow these steps to reflash the firmware of your Verizon LG VX9600 Versa Cell Phone to version 4.

  1. Install the LG Versa USB driver. Download and extract the first file "LGUSBModemDriver_Eng_WHQL_Ver_4.6.rar". Once extracted, install the file.
  2. Download the "DLLs.rar" file and extract it. Once extracted add the "Right_Click_Register_DLL.reg" to the registry.
  3. Install the LGNPST 1.1 software. Download this file, extract it, install it. REBOOT.
  4. Register the VX9600.dll file. Go to the directory "C:/LG Electronics/LGNPST/models/VX9600" and put the "VX9600.dll" and the "LGNPST_GenericModel_Ver_1_0_5_0.dll" files into that folder. (These files were in the "DLLs.rar" file.) Now, RIGHT CLICK on the "VX9600.dll" file and click "Register".
  5. Get the BIN file for version v04. Download it from here: LG-Versa-VX9600-v04-Firmware-Update and extract the VZW folder.
  6. Update your phone. Now plug in your phone and open up the LGNPST software. It should be under Programs ->Phone Flashing Applications -> LG Electronics. You should see your VX9600 under the "Model" column. Now where it says "BIN File" click the folder icon and navigate to the "VZW" folder with the bin file, then select it. You may also need to go to file -> Select DLL and select the "VX9600.dll" file, although I didn’t need to when I did it. Click start and your phone's firmware will be reflashed.
I hope that helps.

Any file that is a RAR file isnt a media file. Rar files are basically winzip files. You can use WINZIP 7 or WinRar to to open and extract Rar files. Go to www.Download.com tand search for WInRAR.Once you find it, download and isntall WinRAR> Use WinRAR to open and extract the RAR file you need.

Firmware file


You have to open the zip file on the computer itself (using WinZip or some other unzipper), and extract the individual files that are contained within the zip file. The zip file is sort of like a container that holds other files.

How to upgrade the firmware on a BEFSR41


Firmware upgrades may erase all previous settings to your router's configuration. Before upgrading your firmware, make sure to record your settings. 1.

There can be no other network activity on the router during the upgrade, so be sure to power off all other computers. 2. Go to http://www.linksys.com/download 3. Select the model number of the Linksys router you have (BEFSR41) as firmware upgrades vary by model and version. You can find your router version underneath your router after the model number. For example, ?BEFSR41 Ver. 3?. 4. Click the Downloads for this Product button. 5. Once you arrive on the download page, click the Firmware button. 6. After the firmware page opens, click the link that says ?Click here to download the latest firmware...? and download the firmware file to your computer. 7.

After unzipping the firmware files, one of them will be called TFTP.EXE. Double click on it. 9. When the ?Upgrade Firmware? window opens, you will have three prompts. The ?Server? field is for the IP address of your router; by default this would be 192.168.1.1. 10. Enter the routers password into the ?Password? field; by default the password is admin. 11. Browse for the file in the Firmware Upgrade utility program by clicking on the button next to file with the '?' symbol on it. Look for the file named 'code.bin' in the folder where the firmware files were extracted to. 12. Highlight the code.bin file and click on the Open button to direct the TFTP loader program to put that file into the "File" box. 13. The full path should be displayed [example: c:\linksys\code.bin]. 14. Click on the Upgrade button to begin the upgrade process. 15. The upgrade should take about 1 minute, and you will be prompted after the upgrade is complete and successful. If you are still having troubles, contact Linksys Technical Support.
