Which Dahua firmware did you used for Amcrest IP8M-2496E?Well for anyone that has the IP8M-2496 cameras (the ones that are always on Amazon deals), I went ahead and tried this and can confirm that BINGO......IT WORKS ! Now have IVS on these cams. I will let you know that I did have to upgrade the Amcrest to the latest first then go ahead and upgrade to the Dahua. Also it does keep your old password so don't worry that you are not prompted to setup new. The old firmware upgrade screen looked different but the new one looked very similar to the Dahua upgrade screens we are used to so knew it was looking good.
Face Detection and IVS supported on this one. SmartIR & up to 40960 bitrate, should you ever need that hahahah
Also of note is this does unlock a 3rd stream where this cam is usually limited to 2.
Now all I have to do is find the latest Lorex LNB9232 FW and I'll try flashing those old ones as well
Thanks, not sure if you already knew about this or not, I was able to upgrade my Amcrest IP8M-2496E camera to this version -At the time, I used DH_IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_MultiLang_NP_Stream3_V2.800.0000008.0.R.190619
Yes once you have this at the Dahua base you can then continue the upgrade path within the 5x3x FWThanks, not sure if you already knew about this or not, I was able to upgrade my Amcrest IP8M-2496E camera to this version -
Hi! Did you end up getting it working? I just bought one and would really appreciate if you would show me the way. Thank you!!I have Amcrest IP5M-T1179EW-28MM, but when I tried upgrading to the Dahua firmware "DH_IPC-HX25(8)XX-Molec_MultiLang_NP_V2.800.0000000.19.R.200628.bin" it reports back that it failed in the webGUI. Also, when I try to use the (IP) Config Tool, the progress goes to 50% and then the camera reboots.
However, I was able to update the firmware to another AmCrest (Amcrest_IPC-HX25(8)XX-Molec_Eng_N_AMCREST_V2.800.00AC001.0.R.201230.bin).
I have tried TFTP (trivial file transfer protocol) from the ipcamtalk download page and also what is native to Windows XP. Nothing seems to be working.
I'm not computer illiterate. Would like some assistance, if anyone might be able to lend a hand.
Hi! Did you end up getting the Dahua firmware working? Which version was it that finally worked? Thank you so muchHello All, having some trouble flashing my Amcrest IP5M-T1179EW-28MM to Dahua fw. I've pulled down both DH_IPC-HX25(8)XX-Molec_MultiLang_NP_V2.800.0000000.19.R.200628.bin and DH_IPC-HX25(8)XX-Molec_MultiLang_NP_V2.820.0000000.28.R.210323.bin but both begin uploading, filling in a progress bar block or two, then errors out and reboots.

The URL dump shows:
When I crack open the check.img file for both versions "IPC-HDW2531TP-AS" is listed.Code:
appAutoStart=true deviceType=IP5M-T1179E hardwareVersion=1.00 processor=SSC328Q serialNumber=AMC06070XXXXXXXXXX updateSerial=IPC-HDW2531TP-AS updateSerialCloudUpgrade=IPC-HDW2531TP-AS..... and so on
I've tried uploading only through the browser, from multiple computers, within the same vlan and off-vlan.... nothing uploads. I have a TFTP server if there is a way to get it to pull from there.
Read earlier posts. You need to first downgrade the Amcrest firmware and then you'll be able to upgrade to the Dahua version. I've done it an I'm on version DH_IPC-HX25(8)XX-Molec_MultiLang_NP_V2.800.0000000.19.R.200628 .Hi! Did you end up getting the Dahua firmware working? Which version was it that finally worked? Thank you so much
I'm on an older version (V2.820.0000000.28.R, Build Date: 2021-03-23) but have the same settings. From what I have seen a D1 max resolution for a sub stream is fairly normal for a camera at this price point.
For some reason, I thought upgrading firmware to Dahua will unlock an additional stream or resolution.

EDIT: From the spec sheet of the IP5M-T1179E:
Main Stream: 2592 × 1944 (1 fps-20 fps)2688 × 1520 (1 fps-25/30 fps)
Sub Stream: 704 × 576 (1 fps-25 fps)704 × 480 (1fps-30 fps)
It unlocks additional detection features (ie. Smart Plan , Tripwire, Intrusion), but I'm not sure if it was supposed to upgrade streams & resolution. I was just happy to get better detection via Tripwire.For some reason, I thought upgrading firmware to Dahua will unlock an additional stream or resolution. Thank you.
