Dave the process is really simple, copy the img and bin file to the root of the SD card, and power on the camera. When the camera was released the latest fw files were on the Cycliq site, however checking now shows that this download is no longer there. So my guess is that the 'preferred' method is via the app, which I have to say works very well. I'm not sure how far away the Android version is, so if your chasing the current fw files then drop the guys an email.
Thanks Pete, I'll ask for the files through official site.
I was meaning to dig up my login details so I could also echo a "NO THUMBS" request firmware/app/manual config option for those of us who want to set it up once with app, then just use it as a simple hardware device, SD card out or USB connect with notebook to connect to the PC.
It's about 5% SD memory overhead, presumably similar 5% reduction in battery life. When we're using multiple lights and aiming for longest recording time from the single only front recording device, if possible I'd prefer 5% less battery consumption to be kept for longer battery life and that bit extra in longer run time when using it all.
If the app has been written assuming the thumbnails are there, error handling if there's a file error hopefully gracefully accounts for the option of not having thumbs there by choice.
