This is credeited to eirlink over @ RCGroups.. I take no responsibility for anything you do with this info


The DJI remote controller only supports 8 channels officially but you can change this by changing a file used by the DJI Pilot app on your smartphone or tablet to make it support 32 channels.

If you have an Android device, do it like this:

1.Connect your Android device to your computer
2.Download the file named .DJI.configs
3.Copy the file to the root of \Android\data\dji.pilot\files on your device
4.Launch the Pilot app and you will see that the remote controller now shows support for 32 channels
=========================

For iOS devices:

1.Connect your device via iTunes
2,Download the file named .DJI.configs
3.Click ‘Add File’ and copy the file to DJI Pilot Documents
4.Launch the app and you will see that the remote controller now shows support for 32 channels



Here is a config file ( need to unzip )

sploodge, you're a good member. I like all your posts...they are constructive, helpful and nice to read. Thank god you're not like a bunch of guys that only create duplicate posts in order to put their fuc**n referral to their account and bring nothing new to the subject. So, a big thanks from here and I think DJI should give you a free battery

Now... about this post... if we update the app, this files is deleted again right? I'm not very comfortable changing this files :/

Referral links have their place I think. If posts are useful and informative then its acceptable that the poster gets rewarded IMO ( that's when entire point of the referral system ).

On the channel hack.. No idea if it gets overwritten on app update.. I will see if I can steal my wife's iPad for a bit as I'm sure it still have the old app on it - Also DJI might even kill off this hack in future updates.. Only time will tell.

Has anyone tried this yet???

I guessing this will give you a more consistent image on your iPad as there will be more channels right?

Isn't it funny that this *hack* comes right after the release of DJI GO and that most of us had DJI Pilot app automatically updated to DJI GO... Guess this hack doesn't work with DJI GO.
I am sure these 2 questions were asked already a dozen times and my apologize in advance, but does DJI Pilot App support the new firmware and where is it possible to download the old DJI Pilot app?

The new FW needs DJI Go to work, so no need to downgrade the app.

Do we know what else there is in the .DJI.config file??
Im on a MAC and I can't see the file in the unpacked folder, is it hidden due the .DJI. name?

Interesting. Thanks for the post. I was translating and reading the DJI China  forum (still tough to understand) and noticed a guy who hacked the Pilot App to use his own splash photo on the boot screen for the IOS app. I'd like to be able to change the photo on an Android.. maybe this file is an indication that folks are getting creative.

many ppl say it will not work and you cant use the new channels. Another problem i see is when DJI decided to update the App, maybe the update will see that the original file size of this file is not correct and will not do the update process? So i would keep the original file as well or completely delete the APP and install it again if there is an app update. But DJI can easily prevent this mod in the next update but for now it looks useless anyway

How do you pick the channel you want to use?  Or in other words do you pick the channel that has no lines on it or ones with the smaller lines or what?

This hack has been around  for lightbridge for the past year.  All you need to do is edit the file and change 8 to 32..  it's just a config file that tells the app it's settings
