Default Re: IP camera mod/upgrade

Thanks for the reply.

The firmware seems pretty much generic. From what I've read, the firmwares are issued by the processor maker, then they get tweaked by the camera makers ( custom bitmaps, menus, features enabled/disabled, etc. ). As long as you install the firmware for the correct IC, you are fine ( probably will just need to be configured how to communicate with the rest of the hardware ).
As said above - the firmware of my camera seems to be the default one - no custom logos/styles, all features available and so on.
The SD card control also seems to be working - when the mount button is pressed, the request is sent to the camera and it replies with "mount failed". That's why I think it is just a mater of missing hardware.
