Installing the hack

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I have Firmware Version 1.41 on my Samsung NX1 and I want to install Ottos hack.
In the readme file is stated that firmware version 1.40 should be installed.
So, does the hack also work with 1.41???
Also. it looks like another mod has to be installed before? What do I have to do?
Help  appreciated.

Hey guys, new to the NX1, formerly panasonic GH5S (I know mad arent I) but I love this camera and its a great hybrid. I am having issues installing the hack. I have succesfully installed the NX-ON mod. But I am confused. The mod only works if the install folder remains on the card, so does that mean I can never format it again? I read the part about installing in abother folder onto the actual camera but I am unsure how to do that. Am I missing something? Also with the install patch 5.3 can I also remove the recording limit? I need to remove this importantly. Hope you guys can help.

The mod should work after you take the card out. It's been a long time since I've installed the mod, and I forget exactly how I did it. From the readme:

0. The file containing this README.txt includes everything you need.
  1. Make sure the nx-on-wake mod is installed. This mod depends on nx-on-wake.
  2. The zip file includes a nx-patch.png file. Open and print it or
     familiarize yourself with it - it shows the meaning of the various
     bitrate and resolution slots. You will need to know them to use the mod.
  3. Unzip the file where you found this README in the root of your SD card.
  4. Insert the SD card into your camera and power it up. NB. I mean power
     up the camera, not the SD card 🙂
  5. Pay attention to the messages showing on the screen.
  6. You will be informed when the mod is available (installation is finished).

So it looks like you just put the files on the SD card, put the card in, and follow on screen instructions. Afterwards, you should be able to use the mod without the card being in the camera.

I never had any need for removing a time limit, but it seems that the patch should remove the time limit. (https://github.com/ottokiksmaler/nx500_nx1_modding/blob/master/Removing_Movie_Recording_Limit_Without_Hack.md)

Thank I will give it a try! it mentions that the sd light should blink 4 times (1 long and 3 short) which shows the nx on mod is active. When I format the card it no longer does this so didnt know whether the mod is actually working or not. I will have another go at it.

Ok So I Installed the Hack and it seems to be working although I frequently get an error message that the SD card cannot support eh bitrate I am using. I will buy a faster card an d see but my big problem is that the 1.4.1 camera firmware has a nasty problem of causing the image to flicker from bright to dark in manual mode for no valid reason. I thought this was a setting problem but after trying everything I found another thread that blames this on the 1.4.1 firmware and said that the 1.4.0 firmware doesn't have this problem. So I downloaded it to see. However I launcher does not show a camera connected to the computer when I plug it in to downgrade the firmware. Is this caused by the hack?  Secondly I don't know if downgrading the firmware is even possible with the bitrate hack installed. Has anyone tried this or have any suggestions as to whether this is even possible?
