Flash firmware (Image):

DM8000 needs a special format called “nfi”, which contains a header (and possibly a CRC) and 3 different partitions (loader, boot, root). You can flash this either with the bootloader directly (using a special HTTP client or using a browser), or using a special version of Dreamup. The good news are that you can flash even without a serial cable, you just have to interrupt the boot process by pressing a front panel key.

If you don’t have a network, or trashed your second stage loader, you can flash using only a serial cable.
