Hello guys,

I'm new here so hi to you all (sorry for my bad english writing skills :rolleyes::rolleyes:)

I would like to upgrade the firmware of my NVR to the new interface of Dahua.
Its a Dahua DHI-NVR5216-16P-4KS2E (copy/paste of current web app)

The current firmware is 3.216.0000000.0 Build Date:2018-05-30 but still says its the latest version...

Because i know its dangerous to manual update a firmware, i want to be sure i use the correct one.
Ive read in this forum a couple of bricked NVR of this type, others have no problems.
Can someone please give directions which one i have to use?

Is DH_NVR5XXX-4KS2_MultiLang_V4.001.0000000.1.R.200319 the firmware i need, or do i first have to check if my NVR is v1 or v2?

Thx a lot !!!!

Is this one also for the 4KS2E?
The first post of the thread has a list of compatible machines and it looks to me like the 4ks2e is on the list. There have been so many reports of bricked NVRs after firmware upgrades that I try to never make a "yes it will work" statement. I just report my own result. I went into it with great fear of owning a new brick, and I'm thrilled I still have a running NVR.

Ok thx a lot.
I don't know for sure i will try it, and if i do i will follow the procedure like:
  • disconnect all camera's
  • do factory reset first
  • preform firmware upgrade in menu

If you have extra advice/steps, plz let me know

If i tryed i will let you know the result
