Bud,

Thanks for the updated files.   I was able to easily get Basic working on the 3.12.0 via wifi.   I also tested Advanced, but that seemed to break most features:  imageModeMenu was inaccessible/greyed out and the additional visuals (e.g. insulation, humidity, etc) were missing.     I was able to revert back to Basic without any trouble.

The one thing I noticed that was different between your 3.9.0 Advanced and 3.12.0 Advanced deployments was that the 3.12.0 lacked an updated facet.rcc.    I wasn't sure this mattered, but thought I would mention it.

There is no updated facet.rcc in advanced package. What you experienced had classic symptoms of config file not loading. Try removing the battery for a minute after you load advanced package. Others reported successful update.

brand new camera, 2.0L, 3.9.0
I followed instructions, everything went fine. Everything works great except temp scale(no manual mode, but i was able to bring lock mode back by editing .xml file).

I simply add one line from old toolbar-config to my camera toolbar-config.xml
In main manu tool bar:
    <ToolBar name="scaleMenu">
      <ToolBar name="scale_auto"/>
      <ToolBar name="scale_scale_manual"/> <----- this line doesn't work for some reason
      <ToolBar name="scale_lock_scale"/>  <----- I add this line and got back lock mode on my camera
    </ToolBar>

 And I also modified measurements menu because other lines seems to be not working
    <ToolBar name="measurementsMenu">
      <ToolBar name="measure_spot_hide"/>
      <ToolBar name="measure_spot_center"/>       
      <ToolBar name="measure_spot_max_box"/>
      <ToolBar name="measure_spot_min_box"/>
      <ToolBar name="measure_delta_s"/>
      <ToolBar name="measure_delta_t"/>
    </ToolBar>

By the way there is working manual scale option in picture edit mode...

scale_lock_scale is not the same as manual scale. Also it was removed on purpose because it did not retain the setting and worse - was screwing up Presets Palettes menu. Carefully test your camera to make sure that line does not cause problems.

Again you are not saying what was not working for you. Please learn to give full context to make your posts useful.

I didnt say it is the same. I said I add lock mode to my camera menu which had no such mode after hack.

I see no problem with it so far.. But if you help me with manual mode, I'll appreciate it.

Not sure where you can look for the manual mode. I'd think there is no reason for it not to work if the firmware  version was the same as dozens  of users had here. You could try to flash 3.12.0 downloaded from Flir web site to eliminate hypotetical possibility of regional subversions of the firmware.

Ok, so I ventured out into the dangerous lands of FLIR hacking. Upgraded our 2.0L 3.5.0 camera to 3.9.0 and tried the basic procedure from page 8. I got as far as step 12, but something very unfortunate must have happened because now the camera boots to a point where it says "Application appcore.exe a serious error and must shut down". It's not something I've seen mentioned before and I'm lost. Is there a way to completely restore an installation of the camera system? Can I force an upgrade? Or is the camera completely bricked?  |O

Use the Recovery procedure from page 8 to gain access to the file system, then restore the original files.

Thanks. With some tinkering, that did the trick. I got the tweak up and running. Amazing difference. Thanks for your excellent work.

One small issue. I can't seem to get the camera out of RNDIS mode and back to basic USB connection. I've tried to "fif" the camera through the FLIRInstallNet app, but to no avail. It keeps connecting as a network device. Any ideas?

I repeatedly tried the "Permanently remove RNDIS" to no apparent avail, but I guess the real issue was that I didn't cold-boot the camera. After a battery removal the USB was back. Sorry to waste your time. :-)

 Easter is coming and following my earlier promise here is how to activate a little hidden message:

-switch the camera Image Mode to Digital Camera,
-press and hold the Down key for 6 sec.
 ;)

3.12 was half baked and seemed to be an intermediate firmware version. I was expecting a new logically complete version. Maybe we will see a major rewrite of the security portion of it.

The Ex series is now quite old. I would not be at all surprised to see a new model released soon that runs Linux, like the new Exx series cameras. FLIR will not waste resources on a near end of life product.

I have a E4 with 3.12.0. I downloaded the basic 3.9.0 and advanced 3.12.0. I don't see the cfccfg_v2.py (or cfccfg.py) python script in any of the archives. Could someone please point me to where I can find it?

Hello Abvelv,
I uploaded the file for you.  I don't remember the link I used to download it. I search the Forum but couldn't find anything.

It is not my file, credits belong to the creator who I thank for his work too.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/nbrba1brtbfsazt/cfccfg_V2.rar

I own the E4 non WiFi HW 2.0L and FW 3.12.0 which I successfully liberated to the Basic at first and then to Advanced package.

I would like to express my Thanks to Bud for his hard work which made this possible. 

Thanks a lot BUD!!!

Hello Eevblog Community

I have read a lot about the upgrade of E4 Camera
I own a E4 2.0 L 3.12.0 with Wifi.
I would like to ask: Is it possible for a person who doesn't have great knowledge in programming to do this upgrade?
I am only interesting in the Resolution upgrade.

Best Regards
Albert

Hello AlbertF,
There is no need to know programming at all, you just follow the instructions as given by Bud.
You must have a basic understanding of Telnet and ftp connections.

Have in mind there is no guaranty that you will not brick your camera if you do something wrong. 

Regards
P.

Just wanted to pass on a quick story and take the opportunity to say...

Thank you, Bud!!!

I recently got my E4 back from Flir repair and found it had firmware 3.12.4 installed.  :scared:

Well upon connecting it to Flir Tools and clicking "upgrade" in the initial pop up window I was prompted to "upgrade" the camera to a newer version. Which just happened to be 3.12.0, the camera auto downgraded itself.  :)

Imagine my surprise and happiness. You can all imagine what happened next.

Thanks again to everyone. Hope this helps if someone runs into a camera with 3.12.4 installed.
