600 bulb Pixel LED project with GUI Software
An average person without any knowledge of flash and animation can work stunning designs using this simple and easy to work software interface for pixel LED's like WS2811, 1903, etc. Matrix of any size can be designed with maximum of 600 bulbs. Up to 30 eye catching designs with more than 16 different transition effects can be programmed.

Versions of software included in the project 600v2.1, 600v3, and Newly released 600v4 with 800 bulb design capacity
High resolution schematic included to ease any fault finding and PCB designing

Installation method and licensing:
Once the software is opened, click on "MachineID" found on the extreme right of the top toolbar. A unique ID will be generated. Post the same here in the forum (in plain text and not as attachment) to
get a licence from Ahmad_k moderator. Please do not post Private messages to share the Keygen or Licenses in private.
Once the correct serial number is entered, click "OK" and close the software. Re-open it and see it works as full version. Any version of the software will work with same key provided it runs on same machine on which it is registered. Once you enter the valid serial number, "Licence.lic" file will be found in the main folder. You can copy the same license to the folders of other versions to make it work.


1200 bulb Pixel LED project with GUI Software
After a we had some demands in advance for the 1200 pixel software here is the full package for the Project. Download the full folder and go through the "Read me" file before you start anything. More details about the project and other files are given about what and how. 1200v5 SysInfo.exe is an application to get started. Double click to run this application. and click "Generate" a file named "HardwareID.txt" will be created in the same folder. Post it as an direct attachment (Not a Link) in the project thread with a  request to get a license from Ahmed_k moderator. In return a "license.lic" file will be given by which placing inside the main folder along with the 1200V5. exe will work as full version.  

NOTE:  Please put your MachineID in plain text in the request post. There is no need to attach it

200 bulb Pixel Belt project with GUI Software
This software is similar the 600 bulb software but instead of a matrix, this software is cable of designing designs and animation only on a a single thread / belt of Pixel LED's. High resolution schematic included to ease any fault finding and PCB designing

Installation method and licensing:
Exactly same as 600bulb software. But you need to get a licence from Ahmed_K Moderator to run it. As previously said, post your Machine ID related to this software in plain text and not as an attachment.

Pixel LED project with Software cracking request
Once were the days when most of the electrical decorations were made using 6.2volt filament bulbs which were connected in series up to 45 or 50 bulbs and then powered by 220 volts triggered by Triacs which made the bulbs to run in some programmed sequence and thus to create an eye catching effect.  I recent days  the regular filament bulbs have been replaced by Pixel LED's which are extensively used in decorations and architectural lighting.
Initially the pixel led's were controllers like the T-1000S which were programmed by LEDedit software which generated a custom made file which is copied to a SD card and then inserted in the T1000s controller which read the data and gave a output to drive the LED's in the required pattern and colors. The drawback is the commercially available controllers are costly ranging from 1000 INR to 50000 INR which is naturally a dream for average decorators and hobbyists.

Innovative brains started getting out a way and created some custom software and hardware based on the poplar Atmega 8 or the Atmega 328 which were programmed with a hex file generated by a custom made GUI software on a PC. These software's take the color selection, the pattern the running loops (repetition) and other parameters and generate hex files accordingly. As per inputs available from the users, using the Atmega 8 which is having 8Kb flash, it is possible to make about 23 stunning animations on a matrix size of 10x60 = 600 bulbs. There are many such software's from the same designer with which one can design different matrix's of various bulbs starting from 200 bulbs to 10000 bulbs arranged in any pattern. The software also gives a preview of the running pattern before programming it in to the micro controller.

For time being will concentrate on this easy and small version and after looking in to possibilities, and successfully cracking this version, will discuss about and try to crack another advanced version of the same.

Coming to the working of the custom made software, the evaluation version is freely available on the internet and for the exclusivity of Sonsivri members, the link of the software is given in the text file. (The name of the software is not openly written and available in the attachment in an intention to hide the information about which software we are working on ) The said software uniquely licensed using machine ID and a serial number given by the designer. Once the correct serial number is entered in the software, the full version gets in to operation. No internet is required. Further in a reply to a members query in a whatsapp group, the designer says "Do not add or remove any hardware items like RAM, Hard drives, or any such new internal devices after you take a license from me. When opening my software, in case the system has any extra devices like external drives etc, the software will go to the demo mode" I would like to request any member to provide a serial generator for this software so that it can be used by any of us to make this year Christmas more beautiful with pixel lighting. The hardware is super simple where Atmega8A is used as main chip. Schematic can be found in the link given. A demo version of the recent version is also given in the link.
One of our Sonsivri member tried to crack the software and make a serial keygen in recent days. The software however worked fine but the Bin file generation was not working as expected. The Bin file generated by cracked version and the legal version looked different when seen with a Notepad and thus didn't work.
Please feel free to post any doubts regarding the same in the thread below.

I will try to do it.

Update:

it was very easy to extract correct license info using debugger. Save it to License.lic and it works.

Now i'm trying to create a simple exe which extract these data without using any debugger.   Wink

Extracting is easy. Now the challenging part comes when the designer claims, even if the software works, the bin file generated with the cracked version will not work. We need to cross check the bin generated on cracked and legal version before we finalize anything.

Here is how to extract correct license for your computer using ollydbg.

I tried OllyDBG. But i coudnt load the exe at all. The exe was not found at the location when browsed through OllyDBG. However i'll try as you suggested and post the results soon. Once i am able to do what you suggested, I will make a simple design project file, generate the bin in both cracked and leagal version, and then let you know the results.

Posted on: May 04, 2019, 05:57:24 05:57 - Automerged

In fact i am not in to software side but more inclined to the Hardware, Embedded programming and manufacturing fields. However i couldn't follow the steps you showed in the link. Too the contents of my ollyDBG window was looking different than the one you showed. Now if it works on your side, i would like to cross check it with bin file generation. Here given are two files in the link. One is a project file which has all the required parameters which i have set with a simple design file.  Please open it in the software, and click "Generate Bin" it will give a file output. Now you can compare this file with mine which is generated with the same project file on a legal version. If the cracking is perfect, both the bin file contents should be identical.

This is not a cracked version, this is an actual license file. Original executable is not modified

Yes as you have shown above...i too got a hex file generated and both the Bin file generated in the legal version and the Sonsivri version looked alike. So loaded in the actual hardware and happy to say it is working as original. If we can have a cute little serial generator (Limited to Sonsivri members only) for every machine id, that will limit other guests and non members  sharing further.

Another point to be noted is as these software's takes data from the computer to make its Machine id, Windows will detect threat from a file called "occamy.c" file saying it is a trojan and stopping the download or installation. The designer naturally says to "Allow" it in the windows defender security settings. We need to cross check and make sure about is this related to our members identity in any way..

Feeling happy to say, myself and other member of Sonsivri, sat almost full day today on this project, and we designed few animations, saved project files, and finally tested the bin outputs on actual hardware which were surprisingly working as it should. Next will need a exclusive serial generator / licence generator which will work only for Sonsivri members.. Grin

Once we are done with the keygen, will consider this 600bulb version as complete and will move to next version. Apart from 600bulb version we have
200 bulb single line or Belt chaser software where one can design stunning animation with Pixel Led's arranged in a single line (Not a Matrix)
1200 bulb version of the software is a bit advanced from the present 600v and will have choice of flash memories to store the designs and run it.
These exclusive software's are internally circulated through drive links and whatsapp groups. However will try my level best to get hold of these for Sonsivri members

Attached is a Link where the said software's are announced and released with "How to" videos. Till date he has given 600V links from his drive links. Recently he had uploaded 1200 bulb software and links were shared. But those links were removed immediately for some reasons. Now he runs a whatsapp group where some member were asking about the 1200 bulb links. The designer replied that links are removed for some technical issues and will be share only to those who buy it. Announcements for other versions and releases are too discussed in the whatsapp group where only buyers and potential customers are allowed. So i am trying my links to get other versions too. Will update one by one but naturally it will take time. Those who have bought the license will not easily share the software (Despite it is a demo version). And asking everyone and making it fast will raise an alert. I dont want to ruin the game

Sorry... "another open source" ? We are discussing and working some exclusive custom made software and hardware project circulated internally between customers of the same and is not available on the internet. This thread is not related to "open source"

So finally by extensive search on YouTube channel i found a link to LED Edit 2014-V2.4 files although all discussion is in Hindi language he provided a download link in description to mega which is luckily working @ pushycat can you please verified is this same what we are looking for.

"LEDedit" has no relation with our project here and our discussions. I have given a brief description about this in my first post when i started the topic. Anyways..Softwares like LEDedit2012, LEDedit2013, LEDedit2014, LEDedit2018 etc are similar software's designed by different Chinese companies who make their own models of commonly used popular LED controllers like T-1000s, T5000K, and T8000K controllers. These software's import animation file formats like .swf, or .tol, or animated .gif and then record the sequence on a SD card. Then the SD card is read by the controllers to play the animations on the LED matrix laid in a particular pattern.  So in order to use these softwares, one must have good animation knowledge and animating software too to create the custom made animation files. Coming back to the softwares like LEDedit, these are supplied by all chinese manufacturers for free and available on the internet from respective manufacturer of particular controller. For eg: You buy a T8000K controller, inside the box you'll find the company website where you can get the compatible version of LEDedit for that particular model from that company. Coming to the cost of these controllers, the basic T1000S controller cost from 800 INR to 1500 INR and the advanced T8000K costs somewhere near 10K INR.

Now here the software we are discussing and working on is custom made by some innovative brains from India which can be used by any person without any knowledge of animation and such. The said software will directly generate a hex file or Bin file which is then programmed in a easy to understand , easy to construct circuit using a single Atmega8 Or Atmega328 which controls 600bulbs with the said software we are working now. In future we are also intending to get new and advanced software which will drive 5000 LED's with just a Atmega328 and a flash chip used as memory. So once you buy the software it is up to you to make your own simple PCB and Run stunning animations on any size of pixel LED's. A single assembled tested PCB with pre-programmed designs is sold for about 70 INR in bulk whereas the same PCB is sold upto 300 INR in the retail market which makes the people crazy about these software's.  Hope it is clear.

Good News for now. Keygenning 200 600 1200 version is ready. i will update this post when all schematics are ready.

keep in mind this will be a private keygen and only active members can get their license file

DO NOT send private message and ask about sharing the keygen (This is a warning)

Thanks for Pushycat for providing all three software. Maybe we will have another version which support more leds

ATmega328 is supported, you just need an external SPI memory to save your animation file in 1200 version.
i think in other versions you must use Atmega8.

just wait for confirmation about this from pushycat

The GUI Software just gives out a ready to program hex file targeting the selected micro controller.
1.Atmega8 alone used in case of 600V3 software
2. Atmega 8 Alone used in case of 200bulb pixel belt software
3. Atmega328 and one EN25T80 flash chip used in case of 1200v5 software
    One Hex / Bin file generated by GUI to be programmed in Flash chip
     Hex for reading the flash will be given in the project to be loaded in Atmega328

                                                  OR
   Atmega328 and four EN25T80 flash chips used in case of 1200v5 software
    4 Hex / Bin files generated by GUI to be programmed in Flash chip
     Hex for reading the flash will be given in the project to be loaded in Atmega328

Now one change the output for other chips only if the source code inside the software can be replaced with the one respective chip. But this may be like re-inventing the wheel as my assumptions. Many other chips like STM32 may be used for better stability and speed.

It was my pleasure sharing these 3 beautiful software's for all the Sonsivri members and kindly request again not to share any links and share any files. Use it for personal use. Keep it up to you. Enjoy. Design eye catching Christmas this year. This post wouldn't have been possible without help , encouragement and love from Ahmed_k and Pickit2 who have helped me a lot in every step i proceeded in this project thread.

@ Ahmad_k "Here is how to extract correct license for your computer using ollydbg"
Link gone..can you upload again..Thanks..
All set to go...Now you can download the software and Click on "Machine ID". A series of Numbers will be generated . Post the ID here and request Ahmed_k for a key. Enter the key in the "Register" window and enjoy the software. Note that the software will be locked to that particular PC/ Laptop and copying to any other Machine will result in "Demo" mode
