I need find lost password on HI3516 camera (working with app xmeye). I made dump from the flash chip, unpack partitions (romfs, user, custom) but can't find password, can't find username. Configs are stored in flash or there is separate eeprom chip, or this is stored in Hisilicone chip?

Problem is they disabled telnet in latest firmware updates due to security and there is no reset button in camera. UART is showing only boot but nothing then.
