GoPro Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter immediately stopped working

Following the GP manual for my newly purchased Mic Adapter to one of my GP Hero6 Black cameras, I uploaded the latest software to 01.60.  Initially, the audio recorded fine so I proceeded to make the same updates on my second GP6 however, try as I may I couldn't get it working. 

When I went back to the first GP6, it no longer worked either!  So I tried the litany of various troubleshooting permutations, different mics, turning the USB cable in the different direction and reseating it, wiggling the 1/8" mini connector and USB connector, different camera settings (QuikCapture On/Off, various Audio Input settings, etc).

 

I'm left with the conclusion that the adapter suffered infant mortality and I'm suspicious that the 1/8" mini connector does not seem to seat firmly in the GP6 - even firmness when insertion but no click like the mics do on other gear.  I carefully probed the 1/8" jack plug with a dental cleaning tool but did not find anything foreign in the jack.

 

GoPro or anyone, do you have any other ideas?

As per GoPro they are going to be releasing a usb-c to 3.5 mm pigtail mic adapter very soon. I was told by support it was going to be in January. Losing the brick will be a big plus. Maybe that will work better.

Sounds like the best possible solution, assuming they'll get it right this time!

Yeah it’s just a pigtail so you can hook up the mic of your choice.
