DemoN has a failsafe feature that can isolate firmware related problems with the following procedure:

- un-plug the Xbox 360 power supply
- press the DemoN push-button and keep it pressed all the time
- plug-in the power supply (while still keeping the push-button pressed)

Demon is now in forced bootloader mode. If it turns up in J-Runner or Toolbox now, you can downgrade to firmware version 1.02 and retry the latest update. Maybe there was some kind of data corruption, while the update was applied.

If you still cannot see Demon in either program, than it's definitely not firmware related.

This is pretty helpful in order to narrow down possible firmware related issues
