As many other here, I also bricked my camera by flashing wrong firmware. Is there any method to unbrick the camera? Wifi seems working but it losts camera's id, so now it's called just IPCAM- instead of IPCAM-1234D

Camera I bought is this below

I'm thinking to buy serial console Recovery cable from ebay and try to connect to pins with it. Pins I think are in right top corner in photo below

Or is there any chip for ptz camera I could buy and replace that original one? No luck after finding for same motherboard.
