BlackVue DR500GW-HD WiFi - Custom Firmware
« : 01 Июля 2013, 03:38:14 »
Blackvue DR500GW-HD WiFi car DVR was one of the first that allows viewing a live video as well as checking and downloading of records via Wi-Fi. The car DVR was issue in Korea in 2012. In 2013 a custom firmware was developed.

mordred, sure you can! Make sure to copy the BlackVue directory with all required/own settings (or just required files located in Config and Citytime directories keeping a directory tree) to the other card you are going to use. Otherwise the car DVR will recover default settings of the custom firmware from its memory to an empty memory card.

sciagent - thank you very much.  I will give it a try tonight.

So if I understand correctly:

1) format the new SD card and copy the Blackvue folder from the custom firmware zip over to it (with city time and all modifications set)
2) insert new SD card into Blackvue and perform update
3) copy the folders from the custom firmware that you mention above to the old / daily SD card
4) insert the old / daily SD card into Blackvue and  power up

Sound right?

mordred, yes , that's right. It is also good to format your old/daily MicroSD card right before copying the BlackVue directory to it.

My content of the BlackVue directory is the following:
  • citytime directory with my time zone file;
  • Config directory with configuration files having my settings;
  • Record directory - empty; recordings will be putted there;
  • System directory - empty; log files will be putted there.
The rest of directories is not needed if you have all the other software installed to your PCs where you are planning to check records.

I am wondering what the correlation is between the config.ini and custom config.ini

I ask because after upgrading the firmware, when i reboot the system with a new SD card it reverts back to the default settings that were in the custom config.ini before I made changes to it.

Does this make sense?  in other words, i change the settings in the custom ini and insert that sd into the BV then reboot.  when i take that sd card out and insert my "daily" larger sd card, the settings i made are gone and it reverts to the custom.ini setting that are as they are in the zip file.

mordred, there is not any special correlation.

It looks like you missed p.3 from your ToDo list. And a situation that I described:
http://car-dvr.info/forum/index.php?topic=13.msg1913#msg1913
happened.

Or, it may be so that you have done p.3, but copied ORIGINAL configuration files of a custom firmware instead of YOUR OWN version configuration files.

There are two main ways to loose (some of) your settings:
1. Insert an empty card into your car DVR. When it does not find the BlackVue directory with a content that was mentioned here:
http://car-dvr.info/forum/index.php?topic=13.msg1942#msg1942
it will recover a directory structure and default configuration files of the custom firmware.
2. Launch the BlackVue Viewer or any of its mobile applications, and save configuration. It will revert config.ini to a state of those stock settings you had before saving it. All undocumented and custom settings in this file will be lost.

There is also a workaround to prevent those two cases; everything is described in a documentation, but it require certain (may be a little bit more technical) skills.

Otherwise just be advised to take care your own version of configuration files.

Thank you very much.  You are correct in that I did not copy the files over, rather formatted the daily card and inserted it blank into the unit.

I have it set the way I would like currently. Should I remove all but the directories you mentioned above?

Do I keep the custom config file on the card?

Thank you.

mordred, you should not do that, but you may. Either keep all the directories with all the files on your daily card (and then you will always have everything needed - software and documentation - with you), or just keep a light version of a content as I do.

In first case just make sure that you have a content of your card, from which an update has been performed (e.g. upgrade directory from \\BlackVue\System directory disappears after an upgrade) and all you preferences/settings are set, but not a content of a custom firmware archive where just configuration files have been changed by you.

All configuration files in \\BlackVue\Config directory are needed, including config-custom.ini

Hello and welcome, con5tant!

I am trying to understand how to install this FW. I've read the install.txt.

When i open up the Config folder on the SD card there are 2 configs, one is config and the other is config-custom. Do i delete the config and rename the custom to config?
When i do that and go into the Blackvue viewer to change the settings, the custom config gets replaced back with the original config (erases the custom)

No, con5tant, do not delete either of configuration files; both are needed when a custom firmware is installed.

When you use the BlackVue Viewer, do not save a configuration file, it really reverts all the settings in the config.ini back to an original state. Then undocumented (Wi-Fi) settings are lost, while
NormalRecordTime=1
Brightness=0
remain.

As you see from my previous posts, I used to keep my versions of configuration files and copy them every time to a memory card after formatting.

The stock BlackVue Viewer is good for fixing broken files, but it can also do that when files are moved from a memory card to a directory on a PC, and viewed from there.

But as for working with files, the Registrator Viewer is more convenient IMHO.

Oh...so to change the settings found in the Blackvue Viewer i should edit the config.ini? For instance, If i want the speed to be in mph, i set SpeedUnit=1?

I apologize if this has all been addressed before.

You can do it in two steps: first make your settings with the BlackVie Viewer (that will exclude mistakes, as sometimes settings are not intuitive, e.g. 0 is used to enable an option instead of disabling it), then - add undocumented settings by editing config.ini with the Notepad++.

Yes, to get speed in mph you have to set SpeedUnit=1

And remember to keep a copy of the file for the future use:)

Have a good luck!

Greetings from Switzerland !

I'm very interested in this custom firmware, and wondering if I could help in some sort.

My english isn't the best (French mother language), but I'm skilled in bash scripting and all kind of linux tinkering, and seeing the cramFS image, there is a lot to do with it.

My actual goal now is to have a real blackbox in the car, and link the dashcam to a computer that would be always under the seats, with a huge 1Tb harddrive.
I saw there were NFS scripts in the firmware, so it could be possible to use the computers' harddrive memory instead of the SDCards', using the sdcard only as a buffer.
It seems kinda easy to do it, the hard part would be to... find a power source for the computer not to fail, and creating good detection scripts, which would allow the camera to record to SD Only when it detects no computer anymore.
For one camera, using a computer backend is maybe a little too much, but if you have 2-3-10- ?, you could hook them all up and record in the same place, without having x 64Gb sdcards and manually saving them.

By the way, I'm interested in knowing how {whoever made the nostamp patch} did to change the values in the elf.

Did he just edit the raw HEX values with a good old hex editor, or disassemble/edit/reassemble ?

Do any of the changes made in the BV viewer prgram negate any custom settings?

Okay, so... why did you leave the last "D" from "DR500GW-HD" ?



Doesn't it work with a space (0x20) ?
