I was just looking at unfinished posts and noticed that I’d taken, but not published, a bunch of notes I’d made earlier this year in hopes of hacking better firmware onto the Digoo BB-M2 WiFi PTZ Security Camera.I gave up on the quest, but here are my notes, with minimal editing.
- Someone’s notes on hacking the BB-M2 starting with finding the serial port.
- Onto the boot process, shows it uses UBoot 2013.07 built 9/22/16 with Kernel 3.10.14 compiled same day.
- Gaining root!
- Analysis of internet traffic
- Someone hacking an older, but similar camera (not too similar though, it uses HiSilicon).
- Hack of another similar seeming camera.
- “apk-link login” seems to reference a type of webcam
- Board marked “hsl_a73_rf433_mb,” and “cam360-6220a”
- This looks like the same or a similar device. Perhaps the OEM?
- Comparison to Veksys camera, also Wanscam HW0036
Someone mentioned that the Chinese language page for Netcam360 has a link to the IPC-SDK. When I downloaded it and looked inside, I saw client-side code, but there was also a self-extracting archive called “HSmartLink Win32 SDK” and I remembered the PCB marking started with “HSL.” Searching for HSmartLink brings up hsmartlink.com, which, among other things, has IP webcams! The i9812 looks like a good match for my camera!
Unfortunately, no sign of any firmware updates. I checked the .cn version of the site too. It doesn’t seem as up to date on products (i9812 isn’t listed), and while there is more info in support section, it is still quite sparse. Page that looks like it is intended to link to downloads hasn’t been updated since 2015
Company is “Shenzhen Hsmartlink Technology Co. Ltd”
FCC Database listing for company
So what is the relationship to NetCam360 (check whois & IP ) and they mysterious APKLink?
