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


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!
