Went back to FW: IPB10106251 (July 8th) using the bootstrap method.

I read dbrons reply, found the post he was referring to, and also found the bootstrap method [as you posted]. I was determined to get the beta back in, so I tried again......it installs fine but hangs after on a re-boot. Had to download the July f/w. Tried that, and nothing happened. I'm still stuck on the screen where it says to download the f/w, and plug in your thumb drive with a couple of arrows on the screen. The drive is fine as after about 10 seconds, the CT begins to read it, but still stuck on that screen for the past half-hour. Sorta tired of all this especially downloading files which seem to take forever to complete. All hashes are fine as well as I read the hash on the thumb drive to be absolutely sure it's correct prior to install. The CT power LED never turns on, only the USB LED flashes. Thank god for the satellite dish. At least that works! LOL! I've also submitted an email to CT themselves and see if they offer up any solution! Thanks!
edit: managed to get the July f/w installed and leaving it there! LOL!
