So I ordered a "A118C - B40C 1080P FHD 170 Degree Wide Angle Car DVR" back in 2016. It had an issue where if the unit was really hot (the car's an oven in summer) it would not shut down properly when power was cut / engine off - a potential issue if there's a collision and the current file gets corrupted. So I ditched it for a A119.

Fast forward to today and I decide to see if I could use it for something. I tried the B40S.20170627 firmware, which bricked it (frozen on "welcome" screen). So I take it apart but surprised it does not match the pictures on the teardown. This was B40C_MB_V04 and 2016-03-28. Since it's bricked anyway I try A118C_20160316 and it worked. (pics of box and manual included)
