D5100 enable true dark current firmware 1.02

Postby mabula » Wed Mar 09, 2016 6:49 am

Hi,

I have a D5100 with firmware 1.02 and wish to enable the true dark current for astrophotography.
I notice the patch is alpha for the 1.02 firmware, can I still apply the patch safely, or should I get firmware 1.01 from somewhere?
On the Nikon site I can only download 1.02 which was already on my camera.

Cheers,
Mabula

Solved ;-)

I found firmware version 1.01 on the Nikon Asia website:
http://nikonasia-en.custhelp.com/app/an ... 1-download
So I downloaded it and patched the firmware and updated my camera. I noticed that there is a difference in image dimensions if you just patch the firmware with true dark current versus true dark current menu based.

Tonight I will do some first tests ;-) Thank you for your great work Nikon Hacker!

Hello,

I am also looking for the firmware 1.01 for the D5100.
It is not on Nikon's website anymore, and I could not find it anywhere online.
Would you (or another member) mind sharing it?
Thanks a lot!

Hi,

I found the 1.01 firmware there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pL9X6bneQ64 (see description)
Direct link for download: http://crossgate.nikonimglib.com/dsd_re ... &O=ur9yN00

I just updated my D5100 with it, and true dark current works now!
