  • I have found one bug (that exist in many cameras). The camera is connected to a powerbank and is in recording mode. When the powerbank is discharged, the camera will turn off even the camera is fully charged.
    Is it possible to disable auto power-off during recording when charging will be cut?

    • My Firefly with MODx 3.0 has stopped working. After turning on the camera, power button led is lit (bottom part) and that's all. No screen reaction, front led is off and no possibility to turn off the camera. When the power led is lit, the camera gets hot like as during normal operation. To turn the camera I need to take off the battery. Connecting to ac power (with or without the battery) give the same results.
      I have also taken the battery off for a longer while and wait until the camera cools down. Only one time the camera where able to turn off (for a few attempts).
      I haven't doing anything special with the camera.
      What could be wrong?

      Is there any software that can communicate with the processor and to show possible errors?

        Have you tried recovering it with an ELF file?

        Yes. I've recovered with elf, put the battery back, turned on and it seemed everything was ok. But when I disconnected form the pc and tried to turn on once again, the camera stucked as before.
        Recovery made once again and still the same.
        I don't know, maybe there is something wrong with the battery? It is fully charged, the voltage is 4.12.

        Tried with another battery. Still the same.

        When turning on without cable, the button is half lit with very low brightness like the voltage is lower.
        When connecting the cable, the button is lit like during charging (full brightness) for a while and then remains half lit.

        The camera was disassembled for a few days. I put the battery back and it is working. One day of recording and everything was ok. At night I plugged it for charging and next day the same problem.
        I think there is a problem with power supply circuitry. Maybe there is something with internal capacitor (used for keeping the date)? I think the camera is able to turn on when this capacitor is discharged.
        I have disassembled the board but I cannot localize such element. Can anyone help me?


    • Please, help! Adapt your beautiful firmware to the "V" camera version! I have 2 cameras with firmware version "V", and it is impossible to even disable the OSD function, not to mention the more advanced settings. I'm crying

      • Has anyone working on the MODx Firmware for the V Edition of the 8SE? I only need higher bitrates. 60mbps/s max are way to low!

        • Hey. I recently received 8SE and it has firmware V107, while on the official website the latest version is 105. Tell me, what is this version? And is it possible to install a mod on it? Thanks!

          • Good news! I've got the IMX117 tech datasheet. So, I'm going to try implementing 720p240 with 1:1 pixel readout!

                  Will i be able to install v110 from the backup files? Someone had posted his backup for v110.

                  Not sure, since these are MTD blocks backups and not the firmware image. Writing these to device will require shell access and writing tools like dd to completely rewrite MTD blocks with great possibility to get bricked. You can try to upgrade via mobile app. Official image on site is 105, but for me is showing version 110 in mobile app.

                  Same with the app. It says that I'm in the lateat version of the firmware. Can anyone please make a mod for "V" version of the camera. Or a way to get the firmware from the backup blocks😟

                  One thing we can do is to write e-mail to [email protected] with request to update their website downloads section and mobile app. I already did it.

                  Send also a message... better is to make the bitrate mod compatible with the V Versions of the Firmware

                For those who have V version of the firefly 8se and have no way to upgrade your firmware since the official website has stopped the updates after v105. This is a working copy of v110 which i have tested in my firefly 8se V edition.

                  @muditharj97
                  I've registered here just to say thank you for the link for V110 firmware. My Firefly SE 170FOV (newer V revision) had arrived in mid May 2019, it arrived with firmware V106 and so far I like it a lot. Only issue I had so far is that sometimes (oftenly) it has issues to connect to Bluetooth remote controller, exactly this one:

                  https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3299...df584c4dsvgvyh

                  Sometimes it connects without a problem few times in a row, but sometimes I need to repeat connecting procedure, even to turn off and on camera, it's so frustrating sometimes. But after flashing V110 firmware camera connects to that one Bluetooth remote controller above every single time. Don't know about changelog fot V110 firmware but it resolved the only issue I had with this camera on my side.

                  Once again thanks bro for posting link for V110 firmware, cheers!

              • Did you observe such bug in date/time stamp in the newest version of modded firmware?
                *** I've posted this in Firefly 8S topic. It was mistake because I have both models

                • I have a camera 8 SE, the screen was damaged, but the camera worked fine. However, after some time, the screen stopped turning on. When turned on, blue lights are lit on the camera and nothing else happens. There is no reaction to pressing the buttons, the screen is black.
                  I thought the whole thing was on the screen and ordered a new one and replaced it. But he also does not turn on - black.

                  Please help me, what could be the matter?

                  I also tried loading the bootloader, as shown here http://cnfpv.com/portal.php?mod=view&aid=94 The process proceeds normally, but reports an error during verification.



                  All loops, at first glance, are intact. At the screen, they are exactly in order.

                  • update:
                    I managed to flash the camera. Installing the Ambrela driver and restarting the computer helped. However, the camera still does not work.
                    It looks like I have the same situation as in potst # 111

                    What is this failure? And what can be done about it?
