    Hi alastairstevenson,

    Thanks for your reply. I managed to install the english firmware after reviewing all the steps I had done. I connected the pc and camera to the PoE switch and that seems to have fixed the issue. You did recommend an external power source but I didn't have one handy.

    I set the pc ip to 192.0.0.128. The camera ip was set to 192.168.0.64. The CH version of brickfix worked in this case.

    Thanks again, your fix is really simple once I ran through the steps.

    Hi
    Is this solution also works with platform R4 camera model DS-2CD63C2F-IS ?

    For converting to EN and updating? As opposed to unbricking?

    No, not the 'brickfixV2' fix-up firmware pack - but maybe the 'enhanced MTD hack' if that R4 device also uses a flash memory partition to store the 'bootparams' hardware description data as the R0 series does.
    If you have a serial console connection to the camera, maybe see if you can dump the flash so it can be checked out.

    What's possible depends totally on the useful commands that remain in the bootloader. Hikvision tend to progressively remove the 'useful' commands.

    The way to see what could be done is :
    Power on the camera, and interrupt the bootloader.
    Use the command 'help' to see what commands exist.
    sf would be good, as would be nand.
    Also do a 'printenv' so that load addresses can be seen.
    Note also that with PuTTY it's much better to get text as opposed to a screenshot by using the 'copy rollback to clipboard' menu item, to paste on here as 'code'.

    That's not the bootloader.
    That's psh after the full bootup.
    You needed to interrupt the bootloader, probably by using Control-U very quickly at power-on.

    Well done for figuring out how to get text from a PuTTY session.
    However - it would be even better for forum readers to avoid having to download the text file if you paste the text into the 'code' tags of the forum, using the '+' choice in the post edit menu above where you are typing..

    On the content of the files - this is still not the bootloader, it's from the psh prompt of a fully booted camera.
    Nothing useful can be done there.

    You need to interrupt the bootloader to find the potentially useful commands.
    Suggestion:
    With PuTTY running, keep Control-U pressed so the keyboard auto-repeats, then power on the camera.
    That should interrupt the bootloader and give a bootloader prompt and some different commands.
