{FIX} INFOMIR set top box blocked

If you are getting the following error on your set top box (access to the web page you were trying to visit has been blocked) then here is a guide for unlocking that !

Infomir the manufacturer of MAGs is complying with requests by copyright owners to block URLs of streams infringing their copyright. you can read a statement from Infomir here: https://www.infomir.eu/eng/press-center/news/201-infomir-protects-the-copyright/

The guaranteed fix is to re-flash your box from here: https://wiki.infomir.eu/eng/set-top-box/stb-linux-webkit/stb-software (don’t use the latest version) then turn off auto update and re-enter your info.
Info on how-to is also here. Make sure you select the correct version for your box. If you have a problem, use a NEW USB stick. (FAT32 rear port on box) Make sure you make folder Mag ***
An alternate fix is to use a VPN router.
Whatever you do – make sure you tell all your clients to turn off auto-updates ASAP.
Also before re-flashing make sure that the problem you are experiencing is the Infomir’s blockage. Re-flashing won’t fix random problems like the wrong portal or incorrectly entered MAC, etc.
There are a couple of other things which you may have seen mentioned which may work depending on the software version and which Mag you are using. I’m leaving them out here because they are a bit hit and miss.

Video guides for updating all MAGs are on Infomir site
Different for each type of box and need to be used with the specific instructions
