Confirm fw v-1.01.017 upgrade removes the English UI
Saw the update when connect the cam via app...took the bait

Now I loss the English UI
Any idea how to revert to old fw ? Or other fw ?

I think it's because of Yi Ultra dashcam which is the international version of the King Edition.

Which one is better Viofo A119V2 or this? From what I find is that capacitor can resist more heat in our climate. And the new compact yi dash cam is still inferior to this right?

I changed to capacitor based dashcams since I got my A119 in 2016...

A119 is getting HDR in the coming firmware and the video quality will be improved.

If Malaysia has 4 seasons, I will use battery dashcams like this Yi King Edition innocent.gif

Yi launched the Yi Ultra Dashcam for the international market. The Yi King Edition is for China market.

So I'm thinking that Yi wants to separate the 2 so English menu for the Ultra and Chinese for the King.

Need to find back the previous version of firmware and manual flash.

Don't think can help unless can find back the previous firmware and flash to the Yi King Edition. Yi separating the Yi King Edition and Yi Ultra by International and China like the Yi dashcam. Realy stupid.
