Since there are apparently problems with the firmware update xx (at least according to some postings a microphone adapter / MediaMod is not recognized), where can you download the original firmware that is loaded in the Hero9 ex works in the event that a downgrade is necessary?
What other problems are known with the new firmware?

You cant, GoPro dont allow this. They force you to basically become a software beta tester. You have to put up with the bugs and issues for months, sometimes years before they fix them. Only to introduce more bugs and issues for you to test.
If you could roll back they wouldnt be able to force this testing regime on their customers. This strategy saves them money as they dont have to implement a real testing process.

As far as I can tell, there are these problems:
- Microphone adapter / MediaMod is not recognized
- Remote control is not compatible
- with 2k7 there are only 60 and 120fps, but not 24 and 30 fps
- even at 4k the image quality is bad (washed out / muddy)
Are these problems only present after the update to 1.21?
So is it better not to update?

The Smart Remote will not be compatible with the Hero 9. Can you believe that garbage? Unbelievable.
I updated right out of the box and am scratching my head as to why all the missing lower frame rates. What the heck are they doing over there?
'They are advertising features that cannot even be used because the Media Mod and Max Lens Mod isn't even available for purchase. 🙄
This camera was not ready for market and they just threw it on us to meet a deadline. What a shame. I almost feel as if I was scammed.
Pack everything up and send it all back, everyone. GoPro has pulled some shady stuff on us with the Hero 9.

I dont think the v 1.0 firmware was available as thats what came out of box with.
I keep copies of firmware updates as they happen so have a way to backtrack if needed.
The 1.21 was on the download site from day one of offical release.
