Just a quick one that I've not seen mentioned on here before - on a lot of DOD devices and the Chinese clones you can get into a hidden calibration menu by dropping a 0 byte file into the root of the memory card

I've attached a link below

Just power on the camera and the calibration menu will appear - it will vary from device to device in exactly what is available and functionality.

If you get a Read NOR Flash menu that will allow you to take a backup of the existing firmware - this option is not available on the DOD device I have here but will be on others - the firmware backup is dropped into the root of the memory card.

I've tested it on my DOD LS430W (with a 64 GB and 32 GB microSD) and I see only the following screens, and that's all.
Nothing happens when I press the OK button.

It does vary from camera to camera - some let you save the firmware and others let you erase the PIR to get rid of custom logos etc.

I've not seen anything majorly useful on the devices I've tried it on yet tbh!
