Problematic Mode Dial - Workaround for modded cameras
5

Beware - currently for those who know their way around linux shell and fell comfortable modding their camera. Some form of installer will follow in time.

Beware 2 - this is a work in progress that works on my NX500. No other guarantees.

Beware 4 - I don't have an NX1 so this will require some minor adjustments in order to work on NX1. I hope they are minor.

Beware 5 - Wait, what happened to 3? See? That's how "work in progress" this is. You have been warned.

It works by killing the mode dial (making the camera ignore it for a while - not actually killing it) and overriding it's functionality by an ugly on-screen menu. Not suitable for quick switching between the modes, but there's nothing stopping the enterprising hacker from using the same principle but assigning, for example, EV+AEL to switch between A and M modes quickly or something similar.
