I just want to share that there are a community that makes hacked firmware for Nikon cameras.

http://simeonpilgrim.com/nikon-patch/nikon-patch.html

It's on your own risk of course to flash your camera and if you want to test it, there are a little possibility to actually brick your beloved camera.

The hack is for D3100/D3200/D5100 and also for D7000 cameras.

Maybe this is already discussed in other threads but I have not found any about this when I did a search.

Interesting stuff. If I am reading things correctly from those sites, you don't download firmware; you download a tool that allows you to change a copy of the firmware you already have.

You don't even download the tool, its a web based silverlight tool that you upload your firmware and get back a modified firmware. For more information visit Nikonhackers webpage. I do not have any camera that could be modified so I have not tested this and of course, its your own risk.

These are marginally interresting but only marginally. Now if they had something that would give me Auto Focus Fine Tuning...
