Security Area was written to, thus marking the card permanently, and making it unusable. Bootloaders Device designed to circumvent the Black Sunday
ECM. The device is shaped like an access card on one end, and has an access card slot on the other. A Black Sunday ECM'ed H-card is placed into the
slot, and then the entire setup "becomes" the new, fixed H-card. When a hacker wishes to program this card, he simply inserts the bootloader with H-card
into a programmer (since the bootloader has an end shaped exactly like the card) and does so. The device works by glitching past the test of the security area.
As of late, DirecTV has implimented hashing on bootloaders, making them useless for anything but emulation. 1) You understand that all information on this

box will be displayed once your manual calibration setting has been stored. Click "OK" 9) Remove the serial cable (and power supply if you need to)
10) Connect the power supply, insert your HU card into the Avenger SE card slot (microchip facing upwards) and allow 1 minute for Initial Calibration to complete.
11) Insert the Avenger SE emulation board into your receiver, and check the status of the Green Calibration LED: 12) Check the status of the Green Calibration LED:
(a) If the green Calibration LED indicator flashes ON slowly (approximately 6 seconds between each flash) and video is restored, you have successfully calibrated
the unit. (b) If the green Calibration LED indicator flashes OFF slowly (approximately 6 seconds between each flash) and video remains intermittent after 1 minute:
- remove the Emulation board from your receiver. - Reconnect the Serial cable to your PC COM port. - repeat from step 6), incrementing the calibration
setting in step 7) by 1. (i.e. Set the spending limit to “2” on your receiver). (c) If the green Calibration LED indicator remains lit and there is no video;
repeat from step 6), incrementing the calibration setting in step 7) by 1. (I.e. Set the spending limit to “2” on your receiver). In order to return the unit to auto
NOTE: The Avenger SE calibration software will automatically reset the Avenger SE to factory defaults before applying any setting you have selected using
the procedures in Section 4.0, so in that case this RESET procedure is not necessary. 5.2 Calibration problems The 4 most common calibration problems arise
from the following: 1) Your HU Card has had its code modified and you are experiencing "Hashing" as a result. This can be corrected by following
procedure "3.3 Clean your HU Card (Required Loader)" and repeating one of the calibration steps in section "4.0 Initial Calibration Procedure".
2) You have calibrated another HU Card on the same unit and the previous settings are now stored. This can be corrected by following procedure
"5.1 Resetting your Avenger SE to Factory Defaults" and repeating one of the calibration steps in section "4.0 Initial Calibration Procedure" for your new card.
3) Your card has not been updated to USW 0800 and DSW 0600 (the latest revision of card software). This can be corrected by following procedure
