The idea is to fully convert to English and make them fully upgradeable.I am confused as to what the point is of running the MTD hacks? Will they let me install Chinese firmware and make the menus English?
Yes, the 'enhanced mtd hack' : Hikvision DS-2CD2x32-I (R0) brick-fix tool / full upgrade method / fixup roundup.Does anything permanently fix this issue short of buying new "WR" cameras?
What does SADP show for the status and firmware version eg is that 4.0.8?So I went to the web guy and uploaded EN v5.4.41 and it rebooted, but no web GUI when it came back. I can still SSH into it on its proper camera IP (not the 18.104.22.168), but it obviously does me no good.
No, the changes you made in mtdblock6 will persist. mtdblock1 gets re-written on an update.I don't need to re-install the MTD1/MTD6 each time I roll back to v5.2.5 do I?
By all that you've shown, the upgrade should work OK.So now I am back at v5.2.5_raptor and working again. Not sure what my options are at this point.
hello my friends i can not using Blue iris Tools can you do me a favor ?I've taken this program, run through all the options and works as advertised, so kudos wzhick for publishing this and good to see fellow hackers contribute what they know.
Changing the firmware flag to English and loading English firmware will not make your camera English. What I did is replaced the IEfile.tar.gz with the one I previously offered in English and Russian, created a new digicap.dav file with this tool and did a firmware update and a Chinese camera now has English or Russian menus. Don't confuse that with making the region code permanently English and with just that fix alone, the day of week is still in Chinese but this takes the development process to the next level and feel we are close to better solution.
For those working on this effort, I found that a firmware update, besides updating files in the dav directory, also updates MTD9 & 10 via a file called himage in the firmware as well as MTD11 & 12 by a file called hroot.img. I feel somewhere in there is the key to the Chinese day of week problem.
I'm puzzled why this isn't working for you, as it has for loads of other people.I gave your 5.2.5 a shot and got the same results. It goes in to 5.2.5 ok, but anything above that just puts the camera in mini-system mode.
I'm quite curious why this upgrade fix hasn't worked for your camera but it has for loads of others.So yeah... I think I will just buy some legit WR domes and be done with this stupidity.
If you really mean that let me rush over and catch it - sounds like a research candidate.Welp... I am about to fling this mother hucker into the trash...
