    Looks similar with the YI action camera updates. Interesting.

      Howdy. I still have and sometimes use my Eken H8 Plus and firmware 20170301 WEB (see page 2 in this thread). I found the hex offset to change the bit rate for 4k 30fps 16:9 video mode. I made a new "autoexec.ash" text file, with UNIX LF style text, and put this code inside, and put the file on the root of the sdcard.
      Code:
      sleep 3
      savebin c:\dump.bin 0xA0000000 l 8388608
      .
      The camera makes two folders "PHOTO" and "VIDEO" on the sdcard. So after reading this goprawn post I searched for "C:\VIDEO" and "C:\PHOTO" text in HxD editor in the 'dump.bin' file. About 8 lines down under "C:\VIDEO" text at the 0050040 offset in column '2' I saw a pair of numbers that are similar to the info in the goprawn post. So I tried it and and it works.

      Make a new "autoexec.ash" UNIX LF text file, put this code inside and put the file on your sdcard in the camera. For example, the "0x42A0" is 80 Mb/s in ThiEye T5e and in Firefly 8s but the actual bit rate for this Eken will be 6 Mb/s to 12 Mb/s higher than you set it to be. The camera will also auto adjust the bit rate around the hex number that you write. You can change the bit rate by changing the hex number to any other hex number in the green table below. You must use a text editor that understands UNIX LF text such as Notepad++ or Notepad2 (but not Windows Notepad).
      Code:
      sleep 3
      # 4k 16:9 30fps
      # 80 Mb/s setting = ~90 Mb/s actual rate
      writew 0xA050042A 0x42A0
      .
      Video sample ~75 Mb/s - https://yadi.sk/i/Dcfo564V3Ydtdg
      .
      Download this and unpack the zip file. Read the 'readme txt' file and copy 'autoexec.ash' to the sd-card - https://yadi.sk/d/TDxtrF423ZRYMc

      .

      .

      I used a cheap $14 USD sdcard with the ~75 Mb/s actual bit rate. -

      Also, I am trying to find offsets and increase bit rates for 1080p 60fps {o} gyro ON mode, and 2.5k (1440p) 60fps modes.

        For the dashcam / car DVR / motorcycle vlogger enthusiast, you can make your Ambarella A12 camera into a 4k recorder that records 6 + hours on a 32gb sdcard and video image is not so bad so it's still usable. Just change the bit rate to about 10 Mb/s by using 0x4120 as the bit rate code.

        Code:
        sleep 3
        # 4k 16:9 30fps
        # 10 Mb/s
        writew 0xA050042A 0x4120
        .
        Here are 4k video samples 3840x2160, 30fps.
        ~9 Mb/s - https://yadi.sk/i/5IeGXeYz3Y5DRV
        ~10 Mb/s - https://yadi.sk/i/SlFu_YNY3Y5DRM

        96 Mb/s actual video bit rate for 4k works! I used writew 0xA050042A 0x42A2 hex number for 81 Mb/s setting.


        link - https://imgur.com/pygFtvc
        .

        Also try higher bit rates for 3K30 and 2.7K60 modes. [ Add "sleep 3" code at the top above # 3K30 if it is not already there. ]
        Download this zip file and unpack it and copy 'autoexec.ash' to the sdcard - https://yadi.sk/d/TDxtrF423ZRYMc
        Code:
        # 3K30, 4:3, 2880x2160, 30fps
        # 81 Mb/s setting = up to ~97 Mb/s actual
        writew 0xA050050A 0x42A2
        writew 0xA050051A 0x42A2
        #
        # 2.7K60, 16:9, 2560x1440, 60fps
        # 0x428E is 71 Mb/s number
        # but max bit rate seems to be ~ 69 Mb/s
        writew 0xA05005AA 0x428E

      Eken H8R plus, released in 2018. Ambarella A12 + Panasonic MN3xxxx sensor. (Which one?)
      Link to Aliexpress here - https://goo.gl/z3HGZ3 - and link to Eken's homesite here - https://www.eken.com/h8r_plus
      If Eken would ever post a firmware update to this cam, then it would likely be in Eken's Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/notes/eken/...4338583678121/ - or - on Ron's site http://eken-camera-recovery-made-sim...EkenModel.html

      Let's hope this is not like the H8s or V8s of 2017 which was reportedly a poor quality mashup of hardware, firmware and settings. :O

        I wonder if there is any way to change the photo format in EKEN H8 Plus from 4: 3 to 16: 9, as in the EKEN H8 PRO?

          oh! i didn't know that was possible in H8 PRO. Is there a 16:9 option in the setting menu?

          In the H8 Pro the default is already 16: 9, it would be possible to apply to the H8 Plus.

          Recently bought X-TRY XTC250 Pro — most possible a clone/branded oem of Eken H8 Pro (looks like X-TRY is Russian company).
          Log file posted.

          The main problem for me currently is disabled functionality (recording, etc.) with a connected charger. As I know it available on moded Eken firmware. So I'm trying to find answers about possibilities to:
          — backup current firmware
          — install new one
          — restore to original if something going wrong

          Or just change a setting in the memory?

          The current version of firmware is XTYHK / 160924

          Added:
          Telnet works.
          Also here is a video with comparison of logs (Eken H8 Pro log from the first page).

          Hi all!
          I tried to upgrade my H8 Pro's firmware with this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4t...ew?usp=sharing
          I choose Update firmware: Yes. The cam didn't powerd on again for 2 ours. Battery out-battery in: no heartbeat... Now it has black screen. Can I correct it?

            It is a good question... The manufactory one. It is not excluded, the same 20161122. I'm an idiot...
            Is there any way to fix this problem?

        • #39
          Is there any available older fw file for H8pro? I’ve tried every constellation with AmbaUSB, but no success.
