GoPro Hero 3 Refuses to update and pair with phone

Hey guys and gals, I am new with the whole GoPro thing so I just purchased a hero three white. But I’m on able to update and pair the camera to the phone.
I did a hard reset, a soft reset. The first time I tried to update actually the lights and the screen was showing the update failed. Then I tried it over and over again and now the lights and the screen don’t even show any changes when I start The GoPro. It doesn’t even say upload anymore, nothing is happening. What can I do? I tried everything!

aw man, that sucks. had a similar experience. read this thread first before trying anything else, and use the files from the last page to update:
