During the updating of the camera it started flashing red lights and it doesnt stop. The screen keeps on showing a notification which says Firmware update failed. It is not possible to turn it off because after a few seconds it starts again by itself. I already tried all different ways of updating (Via USB, SD-Card, GoPro Studio, GoPro App) It doesnt work. Can someone please help me with this?

If you're doing the manual update and the camera is stuck in the update i would remove battery , reformat the sd card and install the firmware again, please make sure if you unzipped the firmware file that download from their website. It happened the same to me because i copyed the zip file to root of the SD card without zipping it first.

Try the manual update, in my opinion is the best way to do it. If the camera gets stucked try to reformat the card before you start the update and make sure you unziped the firmware file, copy the the 3 decompressed files to the root of the card and the update should go ok.

Great tips @macnamek,
One quick thing to clarify, though, is that for the manual update on the HERO3+ and newer you'll actually move the UPDATE folder (still extracted from the zip file) to the root of the card rather than moving just the 3 or 4 files inside of that folder.
Does that allow the update to go through successfully @Anonymous?
