Zmodo ZP-IBH13-W Firmware Rollback 4.1.0.5

So, I was super pissed off when I decided it upgrade my ZP-IBH13-W IP camera to the latest firmware (4.0.1.8). Zmodo claims for security purposes they had to disable the web interface and video interface. This makes the camera ONLY work with their cloud services (you have to pay for) by coincidence. Any NVRs won't work if you upgrade your cams, so don't do it.

I reached out to them to ask for the 4.0.1.5 firmware to roll back to, and they refused to provide it.

Luckily, a nice user on the Zmodo forums had the firmware and made it available to me. Rolling it back fixed the issues.

I am making it available here becasue Zmodo sucks.

You can download V 4.1.0.5 for the here: V4.1.0.5

Make sure this is the firmware you need before rolling back your Zmodo Camera. I accept no responsibility if you hose your camera.

TO ROLL BACK

STEP 1: Open Zviewer
STEP 2: On the left hand side of the window in device list you will see your cam IPC-192-168-1-?? RIGHT CLICK with your mouse
STEP 3: LEFT CLICK “REMOTE SETTINGS”
STEP 4: LEFT CLICK “ADVANCED SETTINGS”
STEP 5: LEFT CLICK “UPDATE”
STEP 6: LEFT CLICK “MANUALLY UPDATE”
STEP 7: Another pop up box will open…LEFT CLICK “left hand box with the 3 dots” browse for the software you downloaded & click on it
STEP 8: LEFT CLICK “UPDATE”

SUCCESS

If you remove the DNS entry for the wifi settings on the cam, it shouldn't auto upgrade.

Cheers
