Unfortunately there's only a datasheet of the SPCA554 floating around,
just search for "SPCA554AV02".

I reverse engineered most of the stuff in this driver via JTAG with
OpenOCD by setting data watchpoints/breakpoints on the address of the
The comments were added by looking up the writes in the datasheet
mentioned above and trying to understand what happens, but
unfortunately the SPCA552 and 554 seem to have quite a few differences,
so not everything could be figured out.
At least it was enough information to get the bypass mode working,
which was my main goal.

Since the SPCA has an integrated 8051 core, you probably need to upload
proprietary code to get the camera working, or you have to rewrite the
firmware for this chip as well...

Same thing with the WiFi-chip unfortunately, it needs a proprietary
firmware blob.
