I have created an offline only firmware for Chumbys and insignias. This 
will survive when the Chumby servers shut down.

Simply unzip the files to a blank usb disk and put it in your 
Chumby/insignia and restart it.

It will take care of activation problems/network issues etc.

Firmware :

Chumby 8 / Infocast 8 :
