You must first unzip (extract) the UPDATE folder to your computer from the UPDATE.zip file. Do not place the zipped file on the SD card.
Perform a FULL (not quick - uncheck this box) format of your SD card in your computer
Move the UPDATE folder (not UPDATE.zip) onto the SD card
Right click and Eject the SD card from the computer
Remove the SD card and place it in your camera
Turn the camera on using the side Mode/Power button
Wait for the update to complete
On the camera, go into Preferences>Reset and format the SD card
Go to Preferences>Reset and choose factory reset
Turn off the camera when done
On your phone, open the app and go to camera and press and hold on the picture of your camera until delete comes up
Delete this instance of the camera from your phone
Turn on the camera and you should be prompted for the first time setup
When you get to connecting to the app, press the (+) in the app on your phone and choose the HERO7 Black
The app and phone should connect automatically (it's best to just leave the name as it is)
Once connected, use the app to go into camera settings and scroll down to Date/Time
Press on Date/Time to sync the camera and phone to the same date/time.
Take two pictures and a short video
Power off the camera using the app and then exit the app
Your camera should now be working fine.

Well, that's about me finished with gopro products. I thought I had software issues sorted but Today, I have lost all conectivity with it apart from using it with my desktop via usb. WiFi via the android app fails. The destop app crashes the very moment I try to connect.
I've made my thoughts very clear to Amazon and its on its way back for a refund.
Onwards and upwards ;-)
See ya guys.

When i test it, the picture jumps with stabilization on or off to all video modes.
I did a sd format again and a factory reset, but the problem remains the same.
I remove the SD card and in standby mode i turn the camera to the right and to the left, with or without sd card the picture still jumps!
Battery is on 82 %.
Maybe it needs to send the camera to service.
