Dear Community and Nikon Hacker,
I bought a Nikon D5300 and I really need the unlimited live view function. There is a hack for this for the D5200...can i use/install this on my D5300?

Thanks and regards,
Thir

no, you cannot run the wrong firmware on your camera.

[Edit]: No, by default Nikon does not install the wrong firmware on the camera, but you should not try to do this. It's quite simple to alter the firmware files so they will "be installed" and then you will not own a working camera, so just don't try it.

I also urgently need the firmware of my D5300. Same as on D5100. It allows you to shoot video unlimited in time. Use different batteries. And set up additional useful settings. Many of my friends also have a D5300 camera and we will all be very grateful if a firmware modification for these cameras is done!
