Warning: Once the SJ4000+ firmware has been updated to Version 2.5 or higher, you cannot flash the SJ4000+ to lower firmware versions. This firmware is only for units with Versions v2.5 and below. If you revert back to a firmware version lower than v2.5 after v2.5 has been installed, you will brick your unit and camera will no longer be functional. 


Before the firmware update, please make sure to use a high quality class 10 memory card, a list of supported cards can be found here:

Step 1: Please check your current firmware version in the camera settings screen. If your current firmware is v.2.4 or lower, please follow start with step 2, if your current firmware is v.2.5 or newer, please jump to step 3.


Step 2: Installing Loader Software:

The blue and yellow light will blink until the firmware is installed and then the unit will power on. Check the firmware version to confirm version has successfully been updated then delete file SJCAM001.bin from card otherwise the firmware will re-install upon re-powering the unit on.
