  • Jooyfact A1 dashcam help needed

    Friends! Please, HELP!
    I have bought the car DVR Jooyfact A1 based on Novatek 96658 chipset here: https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/32763004814.html
    There are several problems after installation into the car:
    • after turning the device on it blinks once with the blue light after this it blinks only with the red. I have recordered the video telling how it is working. Here it is: https://youtu.be/uj85ooD1Oio;
    • the seller recommends to use only specific tf-cards: “Use SanDisk or Toshiba, C10 , FAT32 , 98M/S or Above TF card”. No problem, I have bought relevant sandisk tf-card. But still the same result.
    • the seller send me the UPDATING firmware (not the FULL one). Following up on his recommendations I tried to flashes the firmware update of the dvr. SanDisk, C10 , FAT32 , 98M/S used during this process. But still no result. It flashes for several seconds: red and blue lights bleems simultaneously. AND AFTER THIS ONLY RED LIGHT BLEEMS. i am waiting for 5 mins but nothing changes - device does not working! Here is the video of the flashing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BznH...46693e5f9YtgR3
    • my microelectronics technician says that the only way to solve the problem is to flash THE FULL firmware with the help of the programmer. But the seller did not have this one.
    Please, help! I need the dump from the working mashine DVR Jooyfact A1 based on Novatek 96658 chipset to flash it with the help of the programmer! Does anyone have something?!!
    I will thank financially for any productive assistance!

        the problem is that 3mb update - IS NOT FULL. its update ONLY. and i tried this one. and it does not solves the problem.
        i need the full update for flashing not from tf-card but with the help of the programmer. the size of full ROM update for this chip is 4Mb.
        do u have such firmware?

          Yes, I know what you are talking about - it's flash dump and unfortunately I don't have any for your device.

          Another option to try is to get the loader (LD96658A.bin file) and update it first before flashing FW96658A.bin.

        Please, a little bit more details. What do u mean "to get the loader and update it first before flashing"? From where i should get it and how to update it?

          Loader is a separate part of firmware and in some cases it can help unbricking Novatek cams. You can ask the manufacturer or the seller to provide it. The file is named "LD96658A.bin".

          Do you have the loader update file?

      • #8
        here is ld96658a.bin
        can i use it?
        is it necessary to make rom copy from my nonworking device before flashing?
        how to flash?

        thanks a lot for assistance!

          here is another one. both of them are equal.

          does it means that on devices with equal chip this part of the firmware is equal too?

            You need to find the loader for your device. You can't use random ones.

            These are for older hardware revisions of the A1 dashcam. I don't think any of them would work with your device.

            If there is another matrix, I wrote about it in the header on the forum, but you have requested it, then only full firmware from your matrix will help.
            The seller does not have them, it is necessary - before flashing, to know that the hardware is in fact, not according to the descriptions of the products!
