Important Notice
  • Miracle box ideally requires a hardware box / dongle to function. Running the setup without one will fail
  • If you opt for the loader version (no box needed) then your antivirus might flag it as malware. You are entirely responsible for heeding or ignoring.
  • The firmware you wish to flash must at least contain a RawProgram & Patch file. You may leave Auto ticked to have Miracle box detect & choose a compatible loader / programmer ¬†file
  • You should only flash firmware for your model and avoid interrupting the flashing process
