    Default a problem with dreambox 7020

    Sad story about Dreambox ...
    It happened all of a sudden, everithying worked fine until
    I reboot (after a power cut), DB boot in game mode
    showing on LCD the Space Invaders and no way to get skip it.

    After several attempts I did a flash serial with Dream Up,
    it went ok but DB halted during boot process.
    I've been trying days and nights many combinations:
    - Dream up --> several versions
    - Imanges --> several versions (including CVS, Gemini, Hydra),
    the one I've been using succesfully for allmost 1 year was Gemmini 2.6
    - Serial, network and browser flash, some of them finished with succes some
    others with error (probably depens on image). I couldn;t make an erase as I
    understood 7020 NAND flash doesn't need this
    - I managed to flash2 the bootstage2 succesfully
    - I enetered in debug serial mode (below it's a sample from boot sequence)
    - I understood that it is NO need to JTAG the EPROM in 7020,
    but I am wondering if this is the final solution
    - I unplugged it for several hours

    Allways In the end depite succesful flash, it still hangs during booting process
    (partial log is atached)

    Is Anybody there who had similar experience and finally fix it
    with with/without JTAG help!
    Is it hardware or software ?
    Should I sent it to back factory , is it costly and time consuming ?

    Thanks you in adavance for help,
