Hi,
I just upgraded the firmware of my "Non-brand LS300W GT300W" followed this site https://dashcamtalk.com/ls300w/.
It originally worked on version MTN01M-130828A and I tried to update it to "The latest firmware is 130823".
Apparently that version is not compatible with my dash cam because I can't turn it on. Only red led indicates charging.

I read that there is a way to flash it again but I can't find original firmware (and probably loader).
Is there any other compatible with original one?

A bit late, but I had the same issue. Any other firmware than the original one does not work on this Non-brand LS300W GT300W. This camera is known as VF300W as well.
Updates with G1W G1WC or LS300W firmwares will lead to:
- screen stays dark (but HDMI still works)
- buttons mixed up and no button for Menu.
-> renders the dashcam basically useless.

But: You can save your camera by flashing the original firmware.

The original firmware of the VF300W can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwApGStq_mCDd1hxTnJ1dFBvNFk
It is the MTN01M-130828A version.
