Hack the MD80 firmware to remove the date display

Villamany got a cheap MD80 video camera from eBay. It has a really annoying feature, it prints the date on the video with no apparent way to disable it.

Armed with a Bus Pirate, he dumped the firmware, removed the date, and reprogrammed the camera. Original in Spanish (machine translation).
