If you wish to install Titan the loader version must be 1.54 or above. Titan versions above 1.32 require the new Iboot loader which needs to be installed first if not present.

There are various ways that are explained below:

8.11 Uninstalling Titan (Contents) (Main page)



If you have an Atemio/Atevio or UFS receiver all you have to do is install your original ird file as explained above and no bootloader changes are neccessary.

Uninstalling titan and switching back to the original reseller loader can't be done (easily) for other fortis receivers but there is one simple alternative method outlined below.

Uninstalling Titan on non Atemio/Atevio receiver and restore Reseller ID with Maxi-uboot

If you have iboot installed then you must install a version of TitanNit older than 1.32 before using this method.

This will install the factory Atemio loader that is compatible with the AAF Recovery Tool (ART) to be able to install the Maxiuboot Loader.

In order for this method to work make sure the setting Allow "Iboot Update" is enabled in Iboot.

When successfully achieved you may start up ART from your PC and install Maxiuboot.


Once installed you may set up your bootargs and change your Reseller ID back to its factory settings. For flashin original Firmware or other Software please refere to your receivers' manual or instructions.
