No. I don't try. Because I don't know that it is the same platform. But ok I try.

Hi everybody. As you might know, Hikvision is going to change their firmware version to update the gui. It's apparently a major overhaul. (and so far it's pretty buggy) I was curious, how did you guys get the key for the decrypt? Flash dump? I ask because I think they have changed it..

Code:
user@ubuntuvm:~/Desktop/Firmware$ sudo ./unpack.sh digicap.dav

Unpack DAV file
DavExtraTailOffset = 53587020 ; ExtraTailLen = 418070220 bytes
Firmware digicap.dav unpacked.

Unpack cramfs.img
fsck.cramfs: stat of cramfs.img failed: No such file or directory
./unpack.sh: 34: cd: can't cd to img
Decrypt file: start.sh
bad decrypt
140160163373504:error:0606508A:digital envelope routines:EVP_DecryptFinal_ex:data not multiple of block length:../crypto/evp/evp_enc.c:517:

DAV file was unpacked

Extract files from overseas.tar.lzma
tar (child): overseas.tar.lzma: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
user@ubuntuvm:~/Desktop/Firmware$
Here is the firmware if you are curious: DOWNLOAD EU PORTAL

Notice how long the davExtraTail is, is that odd? Also, you cannot do the ssh append real shell command instead of psh anymore. (at least remote, i didn't try serial) :( Also the root/hiklinux does not work remotely.

Thanks

These scripts (unpack.sh, repack.sh) support only Video intercom and Door bells devices. Please use hikpack tool for NVRs.

Hello :
i bought 2 Hikvision Chinese and its "Language Mismatch "with my English NVR.
Model : DS-IPC-T12H2-I
Firmware: V5.5.82_190311

I found the same but English firmware 5.5.82_190311 here.

HIKVISION UK PORTAL

Is it safe to update this firmware and hopefully have English instead ? I just need it to work with my NVR.

When linked direct to PC or router ,it can work.
(Tried OVIF mode with NVR ,its cannot be detected.)
Thanks.

Very likely not - applying EN firmware to a CN camera will either be rejected, or the camera will be bricked.

You may have to enable ONVIF in the camera web GUI.
But, depending on the model and firmware version of the NVR, Hikvision also introduced language checking / camera rejection under ONVIF protocol.

If you activate ONVIF in the camera, check out the 'RTSP string' in 'ONVIF Device Manager' (sourceforge.net) 'Live Video' page and see if the camera can be added under 'Custom protocol'.

Changing the language of the firmware header will not yield any useful result.
The CN camera will not work with an EN/ML NVR.
This is by design of Hikvision.

@alastairstevenson ......I manage to use Onvif protocol to use the camera.
Firmware after 5.5.x need to enable Onvif protocol in Hikvision camera.

Your suggestion of 'ONVIF Device Manager' (sourceforge.net) point me into the right direction.

This DVS howto video also help...

thank you.

That's a good result.
And a bit surprising, as Hikvision also introduced language checking in the NVR via ONVIF cameras some time ago.
But maybe they no longer do that.
Worth knowing!

Hello, it is not with international firmware. It is beeping.

I looked it up. It is an DS-7732N-E4. But Chinese Modell. With cracked international Firmwar. I will look up the shown error.

I dismantle it from the roof to have a display :)

I see only the start screen Embedded NVR - than it is beeping.
I can not do anything. No button or something is working.

SADP is not finding an IP.

Now i was able to use an old digicap.dav I can use Firmware 3.2.2build150522. Is izt possible to get an newer firmware? Or is it possible to change the settings of the modell, so that it is possible to use the normal multilanguage downloaded firmware?
