Fix XiaoYi IP Camera China use only and enable telnet rtsp ftp http

by on Jan.07, 2017, under Personal

Please note this does not work with serial number start with 16CN/17CN

Download the file above. This file I got from internet and modified abit to make life easier. I just change the content of /test/equip_test.sh to disable china use only and enable RTSP.

Reboot means pull the power, wait 1 min and power on again. Or telnet into it and reboot command

If you already have china fix), just do the step 3.

Method 1
1. Extract and copy to the SD card. Reboot your ip cam
2. After reboot, wait 5 mins or until it say “this product is for china use only”.
3. Copy test to the SD card again(overwrite if prompt) and reboot

Method 2
If you want to do it remotely without touching the SD card. Make sure you have FTP to the device.

1. Extract and ftp all the file to /home/hd1/ and reboot
2. After reboot, wait 5 mins or until it say “this product is for china use only”.
3. ftp test folder to the /home/hd1/ again(overwrite if prompt) and reboot.

I have done method 1 for 1 ip camera and method 2 for other 3 camera.
It should work.

If you get stuck with solid orange light, delete the test folder from SD card. Somehow the RTSP enabler has failed and I dont know why. it happen to one of my ip cam and i just retry again.

If everything fail, go back to and try again
*Some new version hardware[After april 2016] wont run https://www.dropbox.com/s/4tazlve65zmo6he/
Make sure Telnet/FTP/RTSP works before upgrade to
Extract and copy to SD card. Follow method 1 above

To access RTSP
Replace with your Xiaoyi Ants ip address
