I have a chinese, grey Yi dashcam with V-1.03.025-CN software (SN: CA31AACN...) and I can't change the language to English, engmode and changing SN doesn't work. Does anybody know a method to change this software?

i already do it with same way used before but it brick stuck in ping colour page but can resoter back by flash original firmware math with S/N in Yi dowload

also S/N CABAA also can't

For model 1080P 30fps S/N CC11 please do not change english mode it will brick and can't resotre back due to no have firmware release by yi to download and resolve

To change firmware to english on chinese dash camera version with s/n CA31 or CABAA , need to put on formated microsd - 3 files AAA222CCC.txt, engmode, SN.txt
AAA222CCC.txt, engmode are empty files , SN.txt with 14 symbols of s/n with US instead of CN
After changing s/n , format micro sd and download english emergency aid firmware from here
https://www.yitechnology.com/support/firmware_dash/id/3
copy it to micro sd and power on the camera , it should change firmware to english
Note : This method works on 165 degree cameras(gold or silver) with any serial number and firmware vesrions starting from 1.03.023 CN and higher.
Use genuine from known brands 8-32GB class 10 , FAT32 ,64KB ,formated micro SD card for firmware upgrade .
DO NOT TRY THIS METHOD to change language on BLACK CN version

I think I have issue with the sdcard. It's a 64GB, but every time i power on the dash cam, I think he format the card. After that i can't acces it from pc. And now it's max 28GB formated

probably you have unsupported or corrupted micro SD card
Do not use 64gb card for firmware update,use 8-32gb class 10 ,from known brand,format fat32 ,64kb cluster
