    Sorry, you said it was a Chinese camera.
    If it is - it will not take the English firmware without one of the mtd hacks : DOWNLOAD PORTAL

    Please look:
    - I have Chinese version of camera (CCCH in serial number)
    - now I have hacked cameras with English/Czech language with firmware V5.2.3 build 141024

    Is possible to upgrade do newest version of firmware? Which is the newest "hackable"? And how can I do it :)

    Thanks for reply!

    Check the link 3 posts back, also at the bottom of this post, for the 'enhanced mtd hack'.

    If the camera is truly a China market camera, then if you use any of the EN/ML firmware the camera will stop working.
    To make the camera upgradeable to the EN/ML firmware you would need to do the 'enhanced mtd hack' from here : Hikvision DS-2CD2x32-I (R0) brick-fix tool / full upgrade method / fixup roundup.

    OK, will try it, but is there some "step-by-step" manual?

    Is there an updated link to the 5.2.5 CH version so I can load it back on my camera. It is fully bricked...

    This is all I see now.. the TFTP works...

    Excellent!
    Thanks for sharing the result, and adding to the testing numbers.
    So far so good.

    Today succesfully upgraded one CH from 5.2.3 to 5.4.5 original ENG firmware (5.2.3 -> 5.3.0 -> 5.4.0 -> 5.4.5).

    Have question - 5.4.5 is newest firmware, which can I use with modified mtdblocks? Or is it is the last firmware from Hik and they stop support this cams?

    It's looking like this is the case - unless they create a newer version to break cameras that have had the 'enhanced mtd hack'.
    Was this after doing the 'enhanced mtd hack'?
    The 5.4.5 firmware works OK after the 'enhanced mtd hack'.

    Now I have problem with one cam. mtdblock1 is absolutely empty. Can I upgrade it to 5.3.0?
