Hello,

I tried to update my mini 0801. So, now bricked. Red and blue LED lights, but there is no picture and sound.
When open the dashcam i see it has internal card slot. I bought without internal storage!
It's fake cam? Ambarella A2S70? See pictures below.
I make this cable:

Which DirectUSB software should I?
And I want the 20140808 GPS+2Cards firmware? 20140808 GPS+1Card bricked my mini0801.

These are 2 completely different cameras, I think the fake one is Russian,

This web site sells them http://www.ojocam.com and he also sells on eBay as fonestop

I have brought and dealt with this gentleman and have had a great experience, he has great customer service. He helped me sort out with the firmware for my mini 0801 which I purchased from him.

And there are at least 3 other camera's that I have found this week that look very similar to the mini 0801, they all have different specifications. So it's buyer beware.
