Hello My Dear MIUIers!

Today I am going to give you another instruction on resurrecting your bricked Yi Action Camera.

Let's first start from the first tutorial written by @sepneela. This is the first guide you should read, because if you brick your camera you will first need to unbrick it. You can read this tutorial here:

Unbrick Your Hard Bricked Yi Action Camera Using Test Point

You should follow the tutorial above to bring your camera alive. And my instructions below will guide you through normalizing your camera info in Yi Action app.

Disclaimer. I am not responsible for anything going bad while doing the repairment process described here. Everything you do with your device is done at your own risk. Be extremely careful!

What have gone wrong?

Although that tutorial doesn't state it is suitable for camera revisions Z25 / Z25L, I have checked it on my camera of revision Z25L and can surely say it works with some additions. However, some problems do occur with any cameras' revisions other than Z22/23/L - when you launch your Yi Action app on your phone and connect to your camera the app shows your camera has 0% battery no matter what's the real charge level is. The power led on your camera is also always red and never changes to blue or purple. The app doesn't give you any update notifications as well. Why does it happen and how to solve this problem?
3_yi_action_app.jpg

The problem is simple. The files from sepneela's guide and other guides you can find on the internet are made for Z22/L revisions. And they work fine for those cameras. They also work fine for some other camera revisions. But while writing them in your camera storage you also change your camera's serial number. Your camera ressurects but while connecting to the Yi Action app it makes the app think it's of another revision and the app requests camera information in a wrong way. That's not a problem for recording videos and getting them through the app, but we like seeing correct info, right?

The sollution

To make Yi Action application work with our unbricked camera we need to set the correct serial number for our camera and update the firmware in a normal way. You are going to need a custom script written by johnslm@4pda, a text editor (the author recommends Notepad++) and a microSD card. Here are the steps to fix your camera serial number.

Someone will turn away his nose from roses
While other for a bitter herb will not complain
For once been helped someone will thank forever
To other give your life - won’t even understand
