How you use NLD:
Your drone came with a data cable that you will use to connect your drone to the USB port of a Windows computer, so you can use the NLD software.  NLD is made for Windows only.  With the NLD software and your powered on, PC connected drone, you will be able to do performance mods, upgrade or downgrade firmware, unlock Altitude limits and remove or even turn off NFZ.  NLD also comes with the ability to patch your own NLD GO version and use with your ANDROID phone, in place of stock DJI GO.  The latest NLD GO 4.1.22 has all NFZ removed, will not check your birds firmware version so DJI can't force an update, cuts all communications back to DJI, allows you to use Google maps and much, much more.  If you want to get the most out of NLD, use NLD GO 4.1.22 with your ANDROID device.

Activation

To install and activate NLD with your purchased license key, please do the following steps.

Before you run any programs, ensure that NLD is allowed through any firewall program and anti-virus programs.  You will need a live internet connection at all times when using NLD.  Go to the downloads page of the NLD Website.  Download the latest NLD software.
NLD: https://nolimitdronez.com/downloads/nldapp.zip

Create a folder on your desktop called NLD and unzip or decompress the NLD files into this folder.  Power on your drone and connect to the computer with the data cable supplied by DJI, and right-click on NLDApp.exe in the NLD folder.  Run as Administrator.  NLD will load and start to download the additional files it needs in order to run.  Watch the top of NLD for status. NLD will install the files and then be ready to detect your drone.  Your drones info will be shown at the bottom left of NLD – If NLD needs to communicate with you, you will see messages here.  Follow the prompts to activate NLD and enter your activation code you received by email, if you didn’t do so already.  (check your SPAM folder if you didn't get the key) You will need 1 activation key per drone.  The Activation key is tied to the serial number of each drone, and you can run NLD from multiple computers, not just one.
How to Use NLD Software

These instructions along with the excellent videos from cruzroy will get you started getting more out of your drone than you ever thought possible.  Follow the Activation above first.  Video links are at the end of this document.
NOTE: Before you use NLD, ensure that NLD is allowed through any firewall program and anti-virus programs.  You will need a live internet connection at all times when using NLD.

Power on your drone and connect to the computer with the data cable supplied by DJI, and right-click on NLDApp.exe in the NLD folder.  Run as administrator.  You will need to run NLD as administrator every time you use NLD.  NLD will load and start to download the additional files it needs in order to run.  Watch the top of NLD for status. NLD will install the files and then be ready to detect your drone.  Your drones info will be shown at the bottom left of NLD – If NLD needs to communicate with you, you will see messages here.

To Remove NFZ’s or Change Parameters or Flight Controller Settings,
just click on the selection you want on the left side of the NLD Mod Client app and click the appropriate buttons to do the modifications you want.  Make sure you click on Apply Mods after any changes are made.

The Remove NFZ option will notify you if your current firmware is compatible with the NFZ mod.  If it is, it will run a stage 1 and stage 2 procedure.  You will get a message that the drone will restart 3 times.  The restart is not an actual reboot of the drone, but a quick restart, so you will not hear the startup tones of the drone like a normal reboot.  If you have your PC speakers on, you will hear the drone disconnect and reconnect.  Once the procedure is complete, you can disconnect your drone, restart it and go and test. If you are using other version of GO and not NLD GO 4.1.22, complete removal of NFZ is not guaranteed to work.  Use NLD GO 4.1.22 for best compatibility.

(Continued from previous post)

To get the latest NLD GO App for your smart device (Android only) to fly the drone with, click on the DJI GO4 Patcher.

When that screen opens, click on the drop down box on the left side of the screen and select the GO version you want to patch.  Click on download and save this file to your desktop, or to the NLD folder you created.  Click on the box on the right side of the screen and select an output folder where you want the new MODIFIED DJI GO4 App to be stored.  Use the same location as where you downloaded the unpatched GO file.  Once that is done, click APPLY at the bottom of the screen and the DJI App will now be patched and converted into the modified NLD-DJI-GO4 App.  Be patient.  Depending on your internet connection, this may take a while.  Once that is done, transfer that file to your device via a USB cable hooked between the phone & the computer.  Use the “My Files” app on the phone to locate the APK file and click on it to install it in the phone.  Note you have to allow unknown apps to be installed in the settings on your device.  If you have issues with the .apk not wanting to install, download ES file explorer from the Playstore and use that.

To change or update firmware in your drone, go back to the NLD Mod Client and select Firmware Manager.

You can check the “BirdMap” on the NLD Website to see what functions work with specific firmware versions.  The Birdmap is being updated frequently, so check this often:
https://nolimitdronez.com/birdmap

To Downgrade, Update or Refresh the aircraft firmware
just click on the version that you want to upgrade/downgrade to or refresh.  It takes about 15 minutes for the 2 stage process to complete, once the firmware has been transferred to your drone, and the flashing procedure has started.  Depending on your internet connection, the firmware download may take a while to finish, before the flashing procedure starts.  Once the flashing procedure starts, NLD will monitor the flashing % done.  All the flashing is being done by the drone itself.  NLD is just monitoring the % done and relaying that to you.  During the actual updating of data, the red LED’s on the drone will flash slowly.  The Drone may reboot several times and appear to be “stuck”.  BE PATIENT!!  When they stop flashing, and return to solid red after an automatic last restart of the drone, the updating procedure is done.  Go ahead and run the upgrade/downgrade a 2nd time to ensure a proper firmware flash.  The 2nd run should take approximately 3 minutes to complete.  If you are unsure if the flashing procedure is complete or not…(sometimes the 100% message won’t change…NLD is waiting for confirmation from the drone, but with DJI’s crap programming, sometimes that message never happens),  DO NOT JUST POWER OFF THE DRONE!!!…you may BRICK it!!!  check the red lights.  They should be solid and not flashing.  Power on the RC..if it connects to the drone, the drone isn’t flashing and can be disconnected from the PC, despite what the software may be telling you.  If you get the "phase" messages, the drone is NOT flashing.  (check with the RC) If this happens, you may need to restart the PC to close the programs or use task manager to end task the NLD program.  To check the firmware version of the drone, restart it, and connect it back up to NLD.  Check the bottom left for the version.  The other way to check if you are using a stock version of GO is to go to the about page and check the firmware version listed there.

How to configure NLD GO 4.1.22

To enable displaying of AGL height over changing terrain, for this function to work correctly for NLD GO 4.1.22 - you will need to do a couple of things:
    Go to https://urs.earthdata.nasa.gov/ and sign up for an account
    Go to http://dwtkns.com/srtm30m/ and download up to 4 "tiles" for your flying area and save them to your device you use with GO. Install NLD GO

Copy and paste the names of these files into the .json file installed on your device. (Due to the different data sets, we are unable to do this for you.)
Go to /DJI/og_settings and edit the dtm.settings.json file. This will be easier to do on your PC. Open this file with the editor of your choice, or you can use Notepad++. It will look like this:
{"m_AlgoChoice":3,"m_AlgoParams":[30.0,5.0,15.0,3.0,50.0,20.0,3500.0],"m_AltitudeOffset":0.0,"m_DTM_tiles_paths":["/mnt/sdcard/DJI/srtm_data/N21W158.SRTMGL1.hgt.zip","/mnt/sdcard/DJI/srtm_data /N21W159.SRTMGL1.hgt.zip"],"m_DoLogging":false}
Replace the names of the files with the names of your files (“tiles”). Only replace the names of the two that are there and leave the rest of the text alone. So for my example, I will only have one to replace, so the result after editing will be:

{"m_AlgoChoice":3,"m_AlgoParams":[30.0,5.0,15.0,3.0,50.0,20.0,3500.0],"m_AltitudeOffset":0.0,"m_DTM_tiles_paths":["/mnt/sdcard/DJI/srtm_data/N21W172.SRTMGL1.hgt.zip"],"m_DoLogging":false}

Keep a backup of the original file. Save your changes and transfer back to your device, (/DJI/og_settings/dtm_settings.json).  All you want to do is replace N21W158.SRTMGL1.hgt.zip and or N21W159.SRTMGL1.hgt.zip with the name of your tiles for your area. Make changes to this file as you fly in different areas that need different tiles. Check the map here: http://dwtkns.com/srtm30m/  You can have up to 4 tiles listed at a time in this file.

This allows you to switch between Google Maps and HERE maps upon restarting NLD GO 4.1.22.

Here is what you need to do on your device:
Go to internal storage and look for the /DJI/og_settings folder.
Make your own file named useGoogleMap and place it there.  Make sure it doesn’t have a .txt extension.
Run GO. You should have Google Maps working.
If you want to switch back to HERE maps, just rename that file. As a suggestion, you could name it HuseGoogleMap.
*You may need to install ES File explorer to browse your device. Available in the Play store.
Here is how to enable boosted RC for Mavic (1.5w output) and 32 channel mode for P4.
It's configured from the /DJI/og_settings/datalink.settings.json on your device with NLD GO 4.1.22 installed.
Edit the datalink.settings.json file with a text editor, find the variable called "boost" and change this from false to true to enable the 1.5W boost feature to get even more range than FCC mode. Do the same for the 32Channels and change false to true. Save the file. Boost has been tested and working on Mavic, and 32 channel tested and working on P4P. NOTE! This feature runs the RF chips at their max voltages and as such generates a LOT more heat. Its not advisable to use this mode in very hot climates as the small internal cooling fan may not be able to cope with the extra heat. Run this boost mode at your own risk!

If you need to contact NLD with issues, or questions don’t hesitate to go to: support.nolimitdronez.com   Open up a support ticket, even if you just want to tell us how much you like NLD.  We like hearing from you!!

Guys! Why do you post this here and do not publish a solid manual from the start? I mean at a prominent place of the website?

Is it possible to use fcc 1.5w together with 2.57ghz frequency? Is the change for this frequency in the same file as fcc 1.5w?
