Is there anything for the E-p5 or the E-pl5 ? I have both and would like to be able to make videos longer than 29 minutes?
It looks impossible, sorry. I seems that e-pl5 have no code for video files splitting. Too old. So it have different time limits for different video size and quality (like e-m5-I). It's really hard to identify them all and it haven't much sense without files splitting (get several additional minutes and potential file corruption).

EM1-II or EM1-III? It seems that em1-III refuses to update to modified firmware (see above posts). EM1-II should works. Have firmware version changed after installation?

Hello toschische,

Finally I was able to do a test :

- Update firmware : Ok, took between 1 and 2 minutes, but at the end the red light has gone out without flashing.
- I have done in camera focus stacking with the 45 f1.8 lens, so OK
- I filmed a video of more than 40 minutes (FHD mode) so OK

I have not found the limit for video, but there is no countdown from 30' (but from much more, depending on the video mode)

Well done, Thanks a lot

Forgot to add : on my E-M5 iii settings where not erased by the modified firmware. I had v 1.4 allready.
Focus stacking tested OK with the 40-150 1:4-5.6 R Lens too.

Hi
I own a E-M10ii, and when I use 35mm macro (3/4) lens on oly, the focus BKT is grayed up.
Is possible to modifie the firmware to use a 35mm lens for focus braketing?
Currently I using the ( e_m10ii_v14.rar ) from first post.
Thank you

Would you consider making a short tutorial going over your hacking process?

Yes, but i'll wait until testing some more firmwares to be sure that i understand this process right.
I know it's a lot of work, but since your patches seem to work alright, what about a very brief tutorial? :)

Wow this is excellent. I glad life has been brought back to this project. If only OM solutions would not include these simple silly limits.
I see the official Em1mk3 firmware is 104Mb but your hack is 20-30 Mb. I wonder if that is an issue. The Olympus camera maynot install it as it might look broken and doesn't want to be bricked.
