When the camera came up with enhanced res for the first time, i was stunned with the quality of the image. Subjectively it appeared to have less noise than the older E4 and less artifacts to calibrate out from cold start. Perhaps they improved the microbolometer a little bit.

Mine is indeed 2.0L and 3.9.0.
Where do I begin? This is quite overwhelming for someone like me who doesn't know the first thing about programming. I would be very grateful for any advice!

 Begin from learning how to get an FTP connection to the camera to get access to the camera files. You will need this for anything else.

Thank you, Bud.
I have Windows 7 64 bit, so is it still the case (like a 2015 tutorial says) that I need to run a different operating system?

I'm in the same position as you, Cricri.
There are over 300 pages in the usual e4 forum, so an updated step-by-step (just for 3.9.0) would be much appreciated.

Once you know how to talk to the camera using an FTP software , learn how to locate, decrypt and re-encrypt the config file. Download and use this tool for decryption/encryption:

(make a full backup of the camera flash drive first)

For any other noobs like me, I offer this useful article:
http://fubar.gr/hacking-the-flir-e4/
So far it has helped me to switch to RNDIS mode, use Filezilla with the username Flir and password 3vlig, and backup the Flir E4 files. Obviously those simple steps apply to all firmwares, so at what step does the process become different for 3.9.0? I am hesitant to proceed lest this article be outdated.

About to buy a FLIR E4 (with or without WiFi I don't know yet..).

I'm also a noob and look forward to instructions to "enhance" it!  :)

You have to wait a little bit, there are only so many hours in a day.

I want to know with what file did you decrypt
Conf.cfg

I gave a link in my reply #135 above, did you read it ?

you decrypt conf.cfc, not .cfg

Hello cricri103
Conf.cfc decrypt / encrypt cfccfg_V2.py. You have to have this module imported into Python.
You place the conf.cfc in the python root directory, open the cmd command line, enter the python folder and paste (cfccfg_V2.py XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX conf.cfc conf.cfg) enter, xx = your suid.

Interesting discovery!

One more shooting mode has been liberated - "Sport", which in turn brought a new palette with it - "Medical". Not sure at the moment what it is for but my guess is the Sport mode could be for taking pictures of fast moving objects. A controlled experiment to confirm this would be needed. But together with the Medical palette it make sense that they may be used for medical termography, perhaps by medics of sport teams or by medical researches. Below are samples of static objects how a hand and  alien cat look under the medical palette.

Also interesting:

while playing around with recording videos via USB, discovered that the camera responds to the DirectShow driver settings, Zoom specifically. When change the slider control on the PC the camera changed Zoom level. Cool!  Trying to change Brightness control caused the camera temperature scale to go crazy.  Might have something more to discover...

Just realized it is the 4th anniversary of E4 liberation. Mikeselectricstuff published his info in 2013 October. Now it is 2017 October. 4 years and they can't plug the leak  :P
Several generations of firmware has been set free and now moving to liberating new hardware platform. Let's see what we've got here...

Another feature has been liberated.  :)
The 2017 E4 can now add notes to pictures. They become part of the EXIF header and can be viewed with Exif Tool or other Exif viewer , as well as should be visible in Flir Tools software.

And a special feature from Bud, not being present in Ex series cameras: graphics overlay toggle using the Back button. Toggle the button to enable/disable the overlay. Very useful if only want to see the scene with no temperature scale and stuff. Provides 100% use of the screen real estate. :-+
You are welcome.   :D

Whilst this might be frustrating for some, I appreciate Bud taking his time with this. I'd much rather see a nice swanky hack published, that results in less bricked devices.

That is of course, if bud decides to share!

Don't worry, it is coming, but yes what I am doing it is not as simple as patching a couple bytes and all of a sudden all opens up. This is a tedious process of guessing, tweaking config files, implanting code from other device models, thinking, endless trying and some time failing. You do not want to end up with an expensive brick, I do not either.
