    Hi Guys,

    Was just getting bored and looked at my NVR which has been running well for the last few years on firmware V3.3.4 build 150616.

    I believe i upgraded to the above one in 2015, just wondering has there been any further updates and safe firmware as i had issues getting English version for this.

    Thanks

    OK so i have now upgraded to below firmware from the Chinese site.

    I recalled a step using hik tools where i had changed the hardware language to English and any further upgrades would maintain this language provided i install firmware from the Chinese site. - Is my understanding correct?

    V3.4.95 build 170626

    Anyone know how do i enable the telnet option?

    It's been removed from the Busybox that's used in the version of firmware - you'd need a hacked version of firmware that has the fuller Busybox to enable telnet.
    You will find that if you ever reset the NVR to defaults, the NVR will revert to Chinese menus.
    How much do you want the telnet option?
    You'd also need firmware that's hacked to get 'psh' out of the way, without a normal shell almost nothing can be done.

    Have you got a copy of this firmware? It would be greatly appreciated.

    So is it possible to upgrade the firmware from the DOWNLOAD PORTAL? Currently running this version on my chinese NVR (V3.3.4 build 150616)

    If it's a China region NVR, you are very likely to brick it with the stock EN/ML firmware.
