    Only by the use of 'hacked to English' firmware that someone, usually a technician working for an on-line seller, has created.

    What are my options as far as changing the language on a DS-2CD3346DWD-I from Chinese to English? The firmware it has is V5.5.12 build 180102. It does not answer ssh when using telnet (if ssh is functional will it at least appear to be open with telnet?). It appears to be listening on port 9010 and 9020 seems to return some XML. So given all that, what are my options as far as hacking the firmware to change the language to English? I could do some jtag stuff if this is known to work.

    In reality they are strictly limited or non-existent now that Hikvision are using security chips to hold the camera-specific hardware info, and requiring correctly signed firmware for any updates.
