Excellent! Well done.
uboot password, but a plaintext string "ipc.fos~".
When I read this I laughed out load cos I misread fos as pos ...

That's a brave thing to do - the erase before the tftp transfer - or did you already prove out the transfer?

Had the password sayed "pos", I might have missed it when reading the ASCII printout of the hexdump.:peaceful:

The procedure is not for the faint of heart, it erases entire flash including the uboot to start with.

Of course before starting the procedure I tested with normal Linux TFTP client that the TFTP server is functioning.
Other than that it was just the ping to test connectivity between the camera and the server.
Uboot is fairly good, had the TFTP transfer failed it should have allowed me to try again.
It is not like I lose the uboot that runs in the memory immediately after the erase.

Of course, had I lost power after the erase command, I'd have a rather expensive wall decoration with very little hope of turning it into something useful again.

Hi,
I have the same problem with a bricked FI9821w v2. You have instruction how to recover ()Serial port updating for FI9821W V2 ...) at your dropbox. But the link is not working or the file is somehow distorted. Can you help me out ?

Sorry to revive a 2 year old thread, but I have a bricked FI9821w v2. I have the usb ftdi cable hooked up and communicating, tftp server setup, but I am in need of the recover_image.bin file. Does anyone still have the files or access/info on where to get them?

You could ask recovery files from Foscam support but given they are probably as helpful as always that could be a difficult route.

Here is a package for FI9821W_V2 I found (the link will expire after 14days or first download...)

The recover_image.bin method didn't work for me, I had to follow the pdf instruction that came with the recovery image zip.

Hello,

Sorry for digging this old topic. But i have Foscam FI9803P v2, it was corrupted after power outage. I connected it sucessfully via USB TTL, and saw there's boot-restart loop. Here's output:

I contacted support@foscam.com, but they said they don't have recovery_image.bin because this model hasn't sd card. I think maybe their first line support guys not know how to solve problem. Anyone here has recovery_image.bin for FI9803P, please share me so i can recovery my fi9803P.

Really thank!

Hello,

Sorry for digging this old topic. But i have Foscam FI9803P v2, it was corrupted after power outage. I connected it sucessfully via USB TTL, and saw there's boot-restart loop.

Sadly, I don't know were to get recovery files for 9803P so the only option is to get the serial recovery package from Foscam support or find somebody with a 9803P and try to read the SPI Flash directly from a working camera.

They just replied to me: There's no recovery package for 9803P :(

Hi @GaryTTirn

Seems 404 error link. Btw, do you have recover package for 9803P ?

Thank you.
file.io only allows a single download, somebody must have already grabbed the file and it got deleted from the server.
And no, I don't know where to get P9803 recovery files.

Unless those can be found online, the only option is to work with Foscam support to get serial recovery files.

Hello,
My FI9928P V2 is bricked after a firmware upgrade.
I contacted Foscam support and they accepted to send me the instructions and the files to recover the firmware using a USB/TTL adaptor.
I ordered an adaptor on Amazon and I will try the recovery in a few days:

https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B00LODGRV8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

here is a link to download the zip file.
You will find also instructions for a FI9928P ( Recovery with a SD card)

10-FOSCAM

Let me know if you succeed in recovering the firmware
