Allright, after some ... annoying discussions with Infiray, and a stuck boot C200, i was able to install a Frankestein firmware based on a TC005, my device is working nice today and even better ... coming from a Chinese only device i now have a fully international device.

Infiray asked me 100€ to provide me with an international firmware while my device was Chinese only.... what a bunch of scammer.

I bought a topdon tc004 recently, when comparing it to videos online, my device is missing the "usb mode" menu entry, always running in mass storage mode.
The device is running firmware 1.2.1(1110), which seems older than the 1.4.x most people are running.
I tried updating to the current 1.4.7.8(109) but have not been able to get it to work.

On the software page
https://www.topdon.com/pages/pro-down?fuzzy=TC004
I see two versions. On for devices with four digits (V1.4.7.9) and one for devices with three digits (V1.2.7).

It seems you tried to put a 4 digit on a 3 digit.
Interestingly their version numbers without dots are reversed,
4 digits with dots = 3 digit number, 3 digits with dots = 4 digit number, as highlighted in your post.  :palm:

I'm not  sure if it's as simple as 'use a 5cm FL to get a 5cm minimum focal length' since I have no idea what optics are inside the camera otherwise. And the lenses are $25 each or so, so I'd prefer not to guess several times.

In this post, jairbj said they used a 20 mm diameter, 50.8mm focal length lens: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/thermal-imaging/infiray-c210-thermal-camera-review/msg3698872/#msg3698872

Interesting, I checked archive.org to confirm none of the 3-digit vs 4-digit info was on that page last time I checked it.
A friend of mine who has the same device emailed Topdon asking about this and they replied saying units that run four-digit firmwares are the old hardware revision, three-digit firmwares are for the newer hardware revision.

I just installed 1.2.7 and it still doesn't have a "usb mode" to toggle between mass storage mode and webcam mode.

However after updating it I ran cheese (webcam tester) and was able to get video from the camera for around 5 seconds or so before it glitched out, which is encouraging, so maybe it just appears both as a mass storage device and a slightly non-standard webcam at the same time on these "newer" hardware revision models.

There is also a "super-resolution" option now, I looked at it briefly it appears to try and remove some of the macroblock style artifacts, and may be doing a sharpening filter of some sort.
Still images using "super-resolution" do generally look more asthetically appealing, I can't tell yet if it's a net positive when looking at the live video.
