I found this thread: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/blog/the-dark-side-of-the-rigol-hack-bricked-scope-how-to-fix-it/ (https://www.eevblog.com/forum/blog/the-dark-side-of-the-rigol-hack-bricked-scope-how-to-fix-it/)

The most common problem is totally dead scope after unsuccessful firmware "downgrade/upgrade". The only way to recover it is to reprogramm the flash chip (Spansion S29GL064N90TFI04) either via BlackFins's JTAG interface or in external programmer. There is very important part inside the flash with the factory calibration data, which is unique to every unit. These data has to be preserved in a new flash image for proper operation.

I got in contact with Drieg.
Sent the main board to him and he repaired it verry well.
I'm verry happy to have a working scoop again. :-+
Drieg thank you verry much.
