HIKvision MTD Brick Recovery This is to recover you bricked camera, after trying to do the MTD5 & MTD6 and failing. You will need the 5.2.5 firmware get it here. https://www.dropbox.com/s/i88eaoge0mx0t29/525.zip?dl=0 Also Hikvision's tftp updater and an ftp program (I use Cute ftp) & of course Telnet. You will also need your original mtd5 & mtd6 files. Set your PC IP to 220.127.116.11 1st run the tftp updater (with the 5.2.5 file in the tftp folder) let it update and finish, but don't close it! now run Telnet and logon to the camera with 18.104.22.168 User= root password= 12345 Now type - ftpd &. (Don't close Telnet) This will start the ftp service on the camera. Now using your FTP Program login in to the Camera. 22.214.171.124 User= root password= 12345 Now copy over your mtd5 & mtd6 files with ftp to /tmp/ (name your files mtd5_temp & mtd6_temp). Now back to Telnet. cd /tmp/ cat mtd5_temp > /dev/mtdblock5 cat mtd6_temp > /dev/mtdblock6 Now close tftp updater & FTP Program. Now back to Telnet. reboot. All done your camera will now restart and if you followed this correctly, you won't have a brick any more.
