Nikon Patch v1.13

Postby Simeon » Mon Apr 08, 2013 2:30 pm

Version 1.13 of the online patch tool is released and it introduces a the first patch for the D3200 camera.
As this is a beta feature it's moved to the beta tool http://simeonpilgrim.com/nikon-patch/nikon-patch-beta.html

BUT this code has not been tested yet. So we/I am looking for a brave soul to test it. The changes are three locations the do a check against 20 minute, two are identical to the D5100/D7000/D3100 code, and there is a third location with the same check, which has been patched also. I'd stick the patch on my own camera in a heart beat, but I don't own a D3200. So if we get a brave soul, comment first so we know someone doing it, install, test report.

Update: Also I note is that the changes are only of the video record path of the code. So if there is a mistake, and something goes wrong, pull the battery wait 1 minute insert the battery and reflash normal firmware. Aka these changes are non-bricking changes.

Hi qq64933988,

I see your a owner of a D3200 have you not tried the patch. :)

Again, if i owned a D3200 there wouldn't be any doubts about trying it.

Remember Acc3ss, different people have different levels of risk comfort. aka different ability to recover from the worst case scenario. So I honestly only want someone "ok" about trying the patch to try it.

I was only going by his recent post, as he wanted to replace D3200 with D600 rom etc :P, i was clear about people,
trying patches and risk involved Simeon. :)

I have 2 D3200's. I'll try this out as soon as I can been real busy at work. What do you guys think about the possibility of changing the video record bitrate on the d3200?

Honestly I've not found that stuff in the D5100 yet (the most understand firmware), I guess I could trace the differences in how high and normal quality are handled, to see if I come up with stuff that looks like "rates".

Hey Simeon,

Question, do you have any stats that tell you how often your patch is being used? The reason I ask is because we might be able to get a feel for how often people's cameras are doing funky stuff because people tend to comment on threads more when something is wrong. I know it's certainly that way in phone modding forums.
