According to the MayGion website, the file comes with the camera and is unique to each device.  I don't know what its purpose is, or whether the camera will work without it.  I would suggest just ignoring it unless you are actually having problems and everything else seems fine.

The best thing to do is to identify whether your Maygion cam is using a ARM or MIPS core.

for MIPS this is the best TS guide:

Your device is probably like the one I purchased, mine is MIPS.

My ipcam is bricked and I'm looking for the file "ldr". I have access to the camera via ftp ( Anyone can upload it?

Here's my ldr file, but I have currently bricked my maygion camera. Frustratingly I did manage to fix it the other day and accidentally deleted the cs binary so bricked it again. Now I can't worked out which of the many firmware revisions I've downloaded from the maygion site.

NB, when using ftp on the command line I couldn't see the ldr, but telnet'ing shows the file and I was able to get the file even though it wasn't showing.


if I can work out the firmware that fixes it I'll report it here.

Hi all.

Had an issue with regards to an issue of an IP-Camera that just won't start.  Even if the files in /tmp/eye/ are returned with original files.  I was dumb enough to delete the whole /tmp/eye directory.

WARNING: Do not delete folders or any other files other than those in /tmp/eye/app or /tmp/eye/www

When the /tmp/eye directory is removed instead of just the files in /tmp/eye/app or /tmp/eye/www, this creates an issue where script file (/tmp/eye/ will not have execution rights.  There is also a hidden file called "ldr".  Luckily the IP-Camera FTP seems to give files without an extension execution rights.

To resolve the issue, follow the following steps:

  • Download the ldr file from
  • Download the /tmp/eye/ file via FTP from your IP-Camera
  • Delete the /tmp/eye/ file from your IP-Camera
  • Rename the copy on local PC from to init
  • FTP the init file back to /tmp/eye/ on your IP-Camera
  • On your IP-Camera rename /tmp/eye/init to /tmp/eye/
  • Copy the ldr file from your local PC to /tmp/eye/ on your IP-Camera

Kind regards.... ;D

The problem is that I deleted this file and i can't restore it back my mips ip came can be connected to ftp server and the EYE folder still exist I don't know what to do could some one provide me with this file

This is my file (if it helps someone).
I need the file "ldr"

This is my file (if it helps someone).
I need the file "ldr"
Thank u I upload it but it didn't work
I'm trying to connect with maygion website to help me

But I a'so didn't find the ldr and i don't know what to do :(

September 10, 2013, 05:15:00 pm
I'm desperate. I'm trying to upload the ldr file, but the file disappears.

If the file is hidden I'm not getting to see it with any ftp client.

September 11, 2013, 05:01:18 am
You say the file disappears after uploading? I wasn't able to see the file either but I was able to GET it via ftp so I would guess PUT also works. If you telnet to the camera do you see the file?

From there I see the ldr file, but from ftp I don't see but it is still there so you may want to check with telnet to confirm it.

I can't telnet to the ip camera

September 11, 2013, 11:05:47 am
I've just managed to recover my camera by ftping the right combination of cs binary and www directory.

In the end the version that I used was: firmware.2013.04.22(h.264).rar from the Maygion site which reports softversion=


September 12, 2013, 09:03:47 am
I have tried putting several versions but still not working ip camera web access. I always get the IP

In this thread I uploaded photos of the PCB to see if anyone knows where the RX and TX connectors.,666.msg3342.html#msg3342

Hi fjanula,

I have the same problem, i trying to upload with a lot of client (filezilla, lftp, tnftp, cuteftp for mac) without results,
I try upload renamed to init and before upload rename, but not luck.

Finnaly, i resucite my ip cam upload init renamed file with CuteFTP 9 for Windows (for Mac no run) and then rename to in CuteFTP connected to cam.  ;D
I used firmware 3.1 files (www and app folder) to boot first time and then try another.

I delete accidentaly the ldr file from \tmp\eye. Can someone send it to me or upload anywhere?
Without the file I cannot make the camera works.
