Hi Shams, have you tried in monitor mode

"reaload" to see if pix code loads .

When you said it hangs, before that can you ping tftp server before download?

Do you have smartnet on this pix? given that you have tried tftp new code but pix hangs in the process, you may need to rma it, was this pix power surge protected during power failures, open a TAC case.
