Nikon D5100 Gets Unofficial “Star Wars”-Themed Firmware Update

10 Comments

Nikon’s firmware got decrypted last month, and now an unofficial firmware for Nikon DSLRs has emerged. Rather than offer useful adjustments, the firmware is purely for geekiness: it gives Nikon D5100 DSLRs a Star Wars theme.

Here’s a list of new menu items and the text they replaced:

Holocron – Playback menu
Weapon System – Shooting menu
Super Stardestroyer – Custom Setting menu
Hyperdrive – Setup Menu
Go to Dagobah Luke – Format Memory Card
Death Star Codes – Firmware Version
A Jedi? – Update? (new update screen)
(help: StarWars v1.01)
The Cantina – Retouch Menu
My Menu – unchanged
Dark side of force! – Subject is too dark
Light side of force! – Subject is too light

Here’s how to install it: download the file, rename it to .bin, copy it onto an SD card, and then install it via Setup Menu->Firmware Version->Update->Yes. The original Nikon D5100 v1.01 can be restored at any time, but use this firmware at your own risk!
