Instructions from Disconnects site (

  1. Format your SD card to FAT32 mode (this is not always needed). Note: With other files on the disk, or the wrong filesystem, the image file may not be found. Both the partition type and partition filesystem need to be FAT32.
    • On Linux, create the filesystem using a command like mkdosfs -F 32, and change the partition type using fdisk (partition type b should work).
  2. Copy image file DREAIMG.nbh to the SD card
  3. Turn the device power off and insert SD card
  4. Hold Camera button, and press Power button to entry Boot loader mode
  5. Press Power button to start upgrade procedure
