[HOW-TO] Restore no/black WebCam on ES7000/8000 with SamyGo

Post by fluffi444 » Wed Jun 26, 2013 3:45 pm

Posted this Info somewhere in the main discussion thread but I think Its quite unfindable there... :shock:

Problem: :(
After opening the Camera App on your TV ES7000/ES8000 (with SamyGO running) you have only a black screen right after start and the camera won't work properly.
NO Pictures are possible, NO LiveView possible, ONLY recording an movie is OK (but without LiveView)

Solution: :D
Use your favorite FTP client (e.g. FileZilla) and go to folder init.d:

Code: Select all

/mnt/etc/init.d/
and edit file 01_01_catch_crap.init with your favorite Editor (e.g. Notepad++):

Code: Select all

01_01_catch_crap.init
Find this line:

Code: Select all

mount -t tmpfs none /mtd_ram 
And change it to:

Code: Select all

# mount -t tmpfs none /mtd_ram 
Please be sure that the file rights of 01_01_catch_crap.init are as they were before!

Explanation:
The # will deactivate the command mount -t tmpfs none /mtd_ram. This could be clear.
I don't know exactly what this line has to do normally. But its definitely this line which causes the camera to fail.
mount -t tmpfs must be something to mount an Temp File System... For what? Don't know! If somebody of you has some infos please feel free to post it.

from Description it seems like something related to C series only.
Maybe Skype also working after hashing that thing?

Interesting is that there is no such mount in 01_01_catch_crap.init on C and D series.
So now I wonder what it is and what is actually in /mtd_ram on ES series? will check tonight.

That's really strange.
If you can FTP and you can access shell it is very strange you cannot putty.
Telnet is on port 23 while FCAT is on 2023 or 1023 (I do not remember now).
AVOID TO PUBLISH AND DISCLOSE SAMYGO PROJECTS ON OTHER FORUM.
