  • Yi Discovery bricked (Yi Logo only at power on): recovery possible?

    My Yi Discovery action camera has developed a fault where it only makes the boot sound and displays the Yi boot logo, and that's as much as it does. The logo stays displayed and it doesn't get any further in the boot process, so is unusable.

    Is there a way to recover the camera? All the tutorials I have found seem to be for other cameras with more than one button that you can press during power on (e.g. an Up button) to enter recovery mode, and build some sort of recovery image to load onto the camera. The Yi Discovery only has the power button and nothing else.

    I've tried putting firmware backups on a card and powering on the camera and it doesn't magically load anything. Someone suggested renaming a firmware .bin file to just "firmware" and trying that. Didn't work. I tried it as "firmware.bin" and that didn't work either. I'm not sure I have any valid firmware bin files anyway, so I tried renaming some .fex files in case it could load those. Nope.

    Anyone managed to flash this camera, or put it in recovery mode?
