Answer of your leaving message
I have been trying for hours to install this camera. The app states that I need to upgrade firmware, but the dropbox link is dead. The camera has stopped doing calibration on start up. I have pushed the reset switch and that does nothing. The box said one minute install! Clearly not correct. BTW, the serial number of the unit is 115a05141600350. There is no AMID number on the unit.

Dear Jay, thank you for the mail.

1. Please check/exchange AC and USB cable to cross check first.
2. Please check/format the SD health by this tool / https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/index.html

Rebuild the firmware from the external SD card :
A. This is a manual re-build firmware procedure for your reference (recovery and cure rate is more than 90% )

B. Download file : https://www.dropbox.com/s/mzj48a2o2hafm5h/iCam_iBabi_v3716.rar?dl=0 [ to PC ]
C.
- Uncompress/unzip it to root directory of a MicroSD card [PC->SD]
- Insert the card to the camera
- Plug power cord of it. CAM will auto detect the codes in the Card to do the update ( blue light is on )
D. Auto motor calibration/rotation (About 40~50 seconds)
- Wait till front blue led is blinking. (About 2-3 minutes)
- Unplug power cord
- Take card out.
- Plug power cord again and the blue led will keep blink ( waiting for installation )

Installation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-j_OzXsANo / If you are successful, please erase the card for normal use.
