I'd check out the @rearanger excellent post here Hikvision G1 5.5+ firmware Exploring the Cam & attempting unlock

Once you get root shell on the camera you can change the logo to what you'd like. Will require UART access to the camera to get root in the first place however.
yes, but I am having several problems:
1) I couldn't find the images.
2) I can't download firmware via tftp after formatting.
error tftp: timeout
with smaller files everything works out

You can mount the ubi volume that contains the IEfile.tar.gz if you poke about a bit using the display text as reference.

That will contain the logo you want to change.
edit:
Just checking one of my G1's and looks like after a firmware has booted first time it unpacks IEfile.tar.gz and deletes it.
So the files you are after would be

/dev/ubi5_0 on /dav_web type ubifs (rw,relatime)

In /dav_web

Code:
mkdir /dav_web
ubiattach  -m 14 -d 5 -b 5
mount -t ubifs /dev/ubi5_0 /dav_web

# find /dav_web | grep -i logo.png
/dav_web/webLib/doc/ui/images/logo.png
Thanks, truly grateful for your assistance

Friends, any chance to flash this cam to english?
Camera is remote installed and i will have limited time to reflash it there.
thanks!
Do you have a dropdown box at the web login page? Many have English option but default to another language..

Hello. I have 4 Annke C-800 Turret cameras (P/N I91BF, S/N start with 'E') , apparently equivalent to Hikvision P/N DS-2CD2383G0-I . My Annke cameras came with Factory Installed F/W = V5.5.83 , build 190313. Going to the Hikvision US website entry for that camera: 8 MP Outdoor IR Network Turret Camera and following the latest firmware download link, I find V5.6.3 build 190923 (11/20/2019) is the latest released firmware version (and newer than what is in my Annke Cameras). I also see from the Hikvision download EU portal that there are a couple newer versions than the latest released version. The latest shown on that site is V5.6.5 build 200316 (4/30/2020). Should I go with the released version or the newest version?
This might help:

Anyway to use this code to change the OEM code. I feel like my NVR having an OEM code of 0x1 is causing firmware upgrades to fail. I have the correct firmware with the correct platform code. So the language code, platform code are all correct. Oem code is different.
