  • Firmware for HDCool HCN5000?

    Hello to everybody, and thank you for your efforts!
    This is my first post.
    I was searching on internet informations on the HDCool HCN5000 but also the producer did not respond on the availability of new firmwares.
    The camera does not have a native remote, so i bougt one but it did not work.

    There is a better firmware for my camera compatible with a remote?

    actually in the ver menu i read 20170805 v2.1

    Thank you!!!

    Hi,

    The RC feature must be implemented in hardware to work. Are you sure it is so?

      cyberpk - don't try to update firmware yet because it might brick and then recovery would be difficult. if your camera uses the Allwinner V3 or similar chipset, then please try to backup its firmware. Follow this video

      also, as nutsey said, hardware and firmware inside the camera must already support a wireless remote controller, otherwise any/all remotes won't work.

    Thank you for the answers.
    I'm not sure that the camera has the hardware to sense a remote.
    I think my camera is nt96x based because the photo tags contains the novatek word.
    If I've undertstood correctly, I need to unsolder the flash to dump the firmware. I think i'll do it in the next month.
    There is any way I can check if the rc feature is present in hardware?
    There is a newer firmware I can find compatible with my camera?

    thank you!

      Most likely you can use a SOI8 test clip to dump the firmware without soldering.

      RC controlled cams usually have dedicated antennas for wi-fi and rc. So, check how many are inside.

      Maybe firmware for Akaso Brave 4, or DBPower N5 / N5 Pro could work, but I really don't know.
