How can I put a fresh batch of files in my fingbox?

Hi, I have the most talented hacker in the history of hacking who has recently decided to make me a special project of his. I got my fing box plugged in and working last night and it kept him away for about 6 hours. This morning, when I woke up my fing box wasn't broadcasting its security fence and had an ip address with only 3 octets. And I immediately took it off the network and plugged into it to see what was up and there were about 30 config.json files and network configuration files inside the fing box, I deleted them, altered them or misconfigured them, but now I need a clean set of fingbox files to reload into it so it functions as it's supposed to. Please help

    Just curious...  How are you seeing files located in the Fingbox?  What are you using to view its file system?

    Thats interesting, thanks, never know you could do that.  @Karl_From_Fing, @Michal_From_Fing, @Dylan_From_Fing, how can @macunder_attack reset his Fingbox back to factory fresh, file system and all?

    And any security advice would be appreciated but you should ban Toni up top there as I'm pretty sure he's my hacker.

    To reset Fingbox:
    1. Unplug the Fingbox power adaptor from the wall outlet
    2. Find the RESET hole/button beside the Fingbox power port
    3. Gently insert a paperclip in the RESET hole (very gently) OR if you have a reset button in back then press the RESET button.
    4. While keeping the RESET button gently pressed, plug the power adaptor back in
    5. Keep the RESET button pressed for 30 seconds and release (or until a single white light flashes on the device)
    6. You should now see a single white light on
    7. After a few seconds, the top circle will start flashing, while the original factory software is loaded
    8. This process lasts for a few minutes (~3 min)
    9. A single white light will mark the end of the process
    10. Power off the Fingbox
    11. Wait 5 seconds
    12. Power it back on
