In my previous post I had given the basic idea about the Software update of STBs using PC. You can read that post here
But many friends requested me to write about the Software update of Novatek based STBs so today I will teach you how to update Solid IG 740 HD S2 STB which is based on Novatek chipset.

Tools Needed:

  1. A PC with windows operating System
  2. Null modem cable with both sides female out
  3. Loader Software for Novatek Chipset (Download)
  4. Latest firmware file in .ssu format (Download) for Solid IG 740

Steps to follow:














  • Connect the Solid IG 740 STB using null modem cable to PC.
  • Power On the Box.
  • Select the correct Com Port (eg. COM 1)
  • Click on Open Port and then click on Download button.
  • Power Off the STB and select the Solid IG 740 latest .ssu firmware file.
