  • Elephone Explorer Dual Firmware?

    Hello,
    I have in the Elephone REXSO Explorer Dual in the settings photo from 12MP to 8MP, since then the camera does not work more.5 to 10 seconds the camera, then freezes the display and you can no longer select a function, no video, no Photo, no menu. The camera has an NT96660 chip. What firmware can I install to make the camera work again?
    Sorry for my english.

    Was your camera working properly before or it already came faulty?

      The camera worked first. When I put in the settings photo from 12MP to 8MP, the problem has occurred. Since the Camera does not work anymore.

        Can I install a firmware from here on the Explorer Dual, or does not it?
        I believe with a new installation of the firmware works the Camera again. Unfortunately, I have no firmware for this camera found.

          Yes, your cam is brand new and it has no fw updates yet...

          sweet cam https://www.gearbest.com/action-cameras/pp_736113.html and it would seem to be an "improved firefly 7s" (F88) sort of camera.

          what's the sensor inside?

          please give us shots of the settings menu screens.

        Is it possible to flash the firmware of the AC Robin Zed2 or Firefly 7S on the Elephone Explorer Dual?

          Maybe. First we need to know what hardware is in it.

        Unfortunately is on https://www.elephone.hk/explorer-dual#/parameters nothing from the image sensor, only NTK96660 chipset. Some onlineshops advertise this camera with the Sony IMX179.

        The Shenzhen Dome/Blackview DV760S is synonymous very similar, but synonymous, I do not find any firmware.

          again, please take pictures of the settings menu screens and share them here.

        Photos to make is difficult, because the camera after freezing fast freezes. Here one can see the menu very well:

          jf your camera freezes / locks / blocks / stops working when it should not, then i recommend that you return it to the seller or demand a refund from the seller.

          i wish you or someone could attached a USB SPI EEPROM programmer gadget to the NAND flash chip inside the cam and dump this firmware to a file.

        The supplier has sent me a new firmware. I could flash this firmware, but the camera still does not work. Same Problem.

          I recently purchased this cam. How can get a newer firmware file from your supplier or from another source?

          here is a permanent link to the same file (but compressed inside a zip)
          https://www.dropbox.com/s/kzmwdtcecl...S-bin.zip?dl=0

          the REXSO firmware flashes to my 2016 Firefly 7s camera but LCD colors are strange, and video screen will not show, and trying to record a video just freezes the camera. At that point, the power button seems to "power off" the camera but the shutter led light and power led light stay on. So, this firmware maybe designed for a Panasonic MNxxxx sensor and maybe for another LCD controller.

          I successfully flashed another 100% compatible ACRobin Zed2 firmware, and the cam works fine again.

        If I put the camera in the freezer for 10 minutes, the camera will work for 1-2 minutes. After that, the camera has no function. Will probably be a hardware defect.

          Hello, I've got problem with my elephone explorer 4k DUAL. I'll try to record a video on 720p 120frames/sec. After slowing down a video there are no 120 frames per second. There only 1 (one) frame are repeated 4 times that's why even video information shows 120fps real is only 30fps. Please help me with this issue. Maybe there are a new firmware for that? Or maybe it's the fault of too slow memory card?

            if there are these settings available in the menu, then change them:

            Frame preferred (fixed framerate): ON
            Slow motion: OFF
            Bitrate: HIGH
            WDR (HDR): OFF
            EV: 0
            Color: NORMAL

            and this thread in RCGROUPS has examples and explanations of settings for similar camera, the Firefly 7s

            also check the official elephone site https://www.elephone.hk/ and forums http://bbs.elephone.hk/

            I recommend that you use a " U3 " card that has the [3] symbol on its front. It's faster than the usual "Class 10" card.
            ... something such as this ...

          does this REXSO Dual support AV out via USB port for FPV (or other purpose) like the Firefly 6s / 7s does ?
