I need help guys, when I first encountered this problem, it was resolved when I did this,

Follow these steps;
1. Download the firmware file “tf_recovery.img” . (Whatch out, file name need to be tf_recovery.img
File download link
2. Copy the file“tf_recovery.img” to the root folder of TF card (FAT32 formatted)
3. Cut off the power source of camera
4. Put the TF Card in camera
5. Connect the camera to a power source
6. Wait around 5 minutes and you will see camera will reboot with blue light.

But after a few hours, when I transferred the cam to another location, upon plugging it. The steady yellow light is back. I tried all the link posted here but none works and I also tried the first onethat I used and its not working anymore. I already reformatted my sd card to FAT32 (samsung 64gb evo). My cam is Smart Home Security 1080p (MJSXJ05CM).

I've finally fixed my problem. My camera model is MJSXJO5CM. I'll tell how I did it for those who still didn't succeed.

First of all, you should know that I've tried almost 15 firmware from the internet, but none of them works. Don't get me wrong, I'm not gonna say they are a scam but it doesn't suit my model number. You need to try and error which firmware suits your camera model. It took me almost two hours and finally, I found one thread and try that firmware (*link attached). At first, I thought, it's useless as the device doesn't respond. The orange light still stays as it is. Then, after 3 minutes, the device starts rotating and the light turns from orange to blue. I was very happy seeing that happens. Thank you again.

Tried this and we have the same model but it didn't work. Strangely enough, the one for the JO2 worked  for me initially but then when I transferred my cam, the yellow light is back.
