Re: Gopro 5 black firmware v01.55 & 3rd party batteries

When I say " they didn't make any official announcement " obvisouly I wasn't referring this forum at all. it's a common sense right ? :D

 

Good to know that they have just made the remark today. Thanks

I'm not sure what you are saying in that post, however GoPro put out a press release and the GoPro moderator put out a link to it in a post in the Support community.

Re: Gopro 5 black firmware v01.55 & 3rd party batteries

I found where I could download the old s/w (1.50).  That is what I did...but I'm still pist.  I thought about buying 2 second GoPro, but not a chance.  I think I'll go buy a Yi for $80 that does the same thing.  The deal is, GoPro makes a killing on these cameras and now they got greedy.  That's all I need to know about a company.  See ya!

We'll have a mirror of the press release in The Latest section later today. In the meantime, our press releases are at http://investor.gopro.com/press-releases/default.aspx.

Has anyone tried this batteries on newest firmware?

I Will never buy GoPro again if they are so greedy. Maybe for People in US its not so much but People outside IT is. Its not that People buy their cameras they must be greedy. Ill go back to xiAomi if stays Like that.

Re: Gopro 5 black firmware v01.55 & 3rd party batteries

I have just received my 5 Black today along with 2 3rd party batteries from amazon. 

 

Updated to 1.55 and they are still working perfectly fine? 

 

Only used them in the house to test after seeing this thread, does this issue happen immediately when turning the Gopro on? 

 

Batteries are "Mcoplus BT-501 1220mAh 2pcs Batteries with Dual Charger for Gopro Hero 5 Replacement AHDBT-501"
