Default Net id help

need help setting net-id for pace 4000. i don't have the cable to
set using libby, so i'm trying the funcard method.

i keep getting stuck resetting the NVRAM. i pulled the red-jumper
off and put it back after 20mins, rebooted the box into EM, the net-id
was 49670....etc instead of 09999. i pulled the red jumper and the battery
out, and again in the EM net-id was 39764... instead of 09999.

what can i do to reset the nvram?

and also, what software/files can i use to generate inteeprom file?
i have read that since 3.7ware the old method (netidv2.1.7) won't work
anymore.


thanks

What cable are you in? You are possibly in a Pure area hence why the Net ID keeps setting itself like that, have you tried removing the cable feed before pulling the red jumper and then re-connecting it when you use the Funcard?

also, forgot to mention.

in the EM the box displays dia9
and the pin is 0000 (i.e. its allowing me change it.)

so its only the net-id thats driving nuts.

o.k. got it sorted.
the problem was that netid 1.7 funcard method would not work on the new 3.7 update. so i got hold of the new netid hex v1.8 By Sunrise.(wizmods)
and it worked like a charm.

i used the latest cw(my-area) flash file, net-id hex(new one) and exteep
original (from my atmega card) with ird (forwards), changed the dates in tier8.
i wrote these file to the card.

booted the box into EM and inserted the card, box rebooted with net-id updated. the box was up and running in minutes.

hope this helps others with the similar problems.

get hold of netidv2.8, updated for 3.7 fix. look in downloads. create a net-id hex with it.
here the basic steps after
1. load correct NET ID in, then save 'INT'
2. Put BK & IRD, then save 'EX'
3. Click FUN to create the flash
4. Erase a Funcard
5. load all files into the card reader programme, and write.
In order:
EXT
INT
FLASH
you may write INT 2nd time here, just incase.


now reset the NVRAM in your box(assuming it a pace) by pulling out
the red-jumper in the box for 10/15secs and replacing it.
boot the box into EM and make sure of correct frequency etc.. and on the net id page in the EM put in funcard, it should reboot and reset net-id.

do some searches, there are a lot threads discussions on this topic.
