Has the hackabiliy of the E4 made you buy one :  

Yes, I was already looking at the competition at a similar price, but the hack swung it to E4

Is it possible to go back software from 2.3.0 to the previous ver soft 1.19.8?

1.19.8 was never released as a file. 1.18.x is available for download.

The bad news is that 2.3.x is designed to prevent downgrading to earlier versions as that would have been a route back to a version that could be 'hacked'.

theoretically because they are not published at all, but for wanting nothing difficult

Maybe I will write what does not work in my version
Menu - Free Enhanced menu (they can not go)
Image mode - There is no digital zoom
Temperature scale - in manual mode only shows me LOCK version (not is impossible to change the temperature range)

After that, nothing special is not happening disturbing

Hi all!!   Great site!  I started reading and realized how many pages were ahead of me!  Is the latest E4 Hackable for both resolution and menu? I think 2.3.0 is the latest firmware?  Any help is greatly appreciated. I just sold my i7 so I would like to order the E4 and get going on this.  Thanks in advance for any help.

@Ronsb6

Yes  :)

It is best to read the more recent posts (going back a few months)  in this thread as they pertain to the latest firmware. Read the thread backwards  ;)

 The First page has a list of useful  links that I recommend you review as and when.

Unfortunately, this is a big mess Information
The data are inaccurate and scattered on several hundred pages.
It was necessary to so in the first post systematize information
On principle: the camera version complete description HACK (for your version of the software)
Also had to introduce a complete description of the warnings which operations on which the software does not perform.

@newbies

Reading all the Thread is a Nightmare.

Yet, you have to read it at least three times to get introductory understanding.  :scared:

Either you are profi so you can adjust procedures according your needs (and your own responsibility)

Or you are a welcome guest; use whatever you found on your own risk, but follow the procedures LITERALLY.
Do not assume even a slightest difference will not matter.

It will  :'(

Do not assume people here have lots of spare time to guide you step-by-step recovering your bricked device...

Be carefull, be patient, do not hurry. Prepare your problem well. Make it attractive or even seductive for the users :)

Don't panic. After all, you will manage to achieve anything you want... after a while... mostly long while :)

Now...

@max-bit.

It seems you are using Google Translate or similar service... so really, it is difficult to understand you.
What is your native language then?

The information is not systematized
 And it is a fact.

Of course you can wait, but the exchange of information it should be.

Of course, not perfect, but if you can improve, because he knows a fault, it must improve ....
And yet known to have problems, why they do not describe it?

max-bit,

all information is here, do you research. There have been instructions published many times but you want to be spoon-fed. Here is what i wrote 6 months back:

Quote
" ...publish information in the newspapers, run an ad on television, post on facebook and youtube, then watch half a dozen newbies joining a week saying "I have no clue where to start give me step by step instructions "

So here we have it, your erratic posts are a good example that reinforces my that point.

They're here, do not say no, but they are scattered over 464 pages !!!! and in nearly 7,000 posts :)

In the first post, Mike is the link
30 Mar 2015 Link is a step-by-step guide for 2.3 firmware
 find me there information that you should not update the software from 1.19.8 to version 2.3.0? (Full Hack menu, without errors)

But we do not go too far in this reflection?

The first stage
He wants to help develop software updates cameras (hardware ver 1.0) from version 1.19.8 to version 2.3.0
From what I widomo can be done completely correctly, but it is part of the person who wants to make money (ebay?, allegro (poland))

example :
http://allegro.pl/aktualizacja-przerobionych-kamer-flir-e4-do-2-3-i5273686432.html

So maybe Let's work on the topic of updating the firmware to 2.3.0 Plus FullHack menu?
OK ?

Aha I knew this is one of the Slavonic language group... almong them I know some, but not Polish :) Sorry, Pan! :)

So... is your idea to sell upgrade for the E4 firmware in Poland for 560 USD ^-^?

Do they buy it for the money?  :o

I'm not sold on auction sites, any updates!
OK ?
It does not make any sense, and nobody buys for $ 500
It's a joker this seller :)
I just showed you with are such cases.

But again we depart from the topic ...

I'm glad to hear these can still be hacked, I was fearful that by now it would be impossible, or I'd have to try and find one with old firmware form who knows where. It will probably be several months before I can afford one (have a couple other things I want to do first but should only take 3 paychecks with US currency conversion)

And hopefully by then it won't be too risky to do this and chance bricking your device.

So far so good!! I think!! 

I recieved my E4 yesterday from Flir. One day shipping!!  I read and re read the steps.  I did the res hack and it worked.  What a difference.  I went to do the menu hack and when I run "FLIRInstallNet.exe" I no longer see Flir USB video under camera. I see this "Local Area Connection 4 - 192.168.1.2" the IP address when i did the res hack was 169.254.109.230 .      I have gone over the steps many times. I don't beleive I missed anything.  I don't want to go any further in case I make a mistake.   I'm hoping one of you much more experienced forum members will know what to do.  Any help is greatly appreciated. 

Also, FlirTools no longer recognizes my E4.
