Cam home xx
Recently I bought a Xiaomi Xiao Yi (IP) camera (also known as Yi Home), Chinese version.The camera looks nice, the picture quality is ok, and worked fine on my local Wifi.
I was hoping a firmware upgrade would solve this issue so I have upgraded from 126.96.36.199L to 188.8.131.52B. The camera would say “This camera can only be used in China” and would shut down.If your device’s FW is 184.108.40.206Q, you need to connect your camera via serial port to get console, then insert the SD card into your camera, when you see the command prompt, just type “/tmp/sd/hack_yi.sh”, then your camera is free.Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.I have to mention this is for educational purposes only and you can easily brick your camera.Back to the “This camera can only be used in China” message.Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a service we offer sellers that lets them store their products in Amazon's fulfillment centers, and we directly pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.

Luckily /home/cloud will lock your device just if the remote server replied with “allow”: false.
Now, all we need to do is to block that call or break/invalidate that URL (ie. THE SOLUTION: # ps | grep /home/watch_process | grep -v "grep" | awk '' | xargs kill -9 # ps | grep /home/cloud | grep -v "grep" | awk '' | xargs kill -9 # sed -i 's|api.xiaoyi.com/v4/ipc/check_did|api.xiaoyi.cox/v4/ipc/check_did|g' /home/cloud # reboot First commands will kill watch_process so it doesn’t restart other processes.
It will change com to cox which will invalidate the URL and will not return the message anymore.
Once the camera reboots it will be functional just as before you upgraded to the latest firmware.
