I just bought a new Hero 6 Blk & managed to update the firmware using the desktop app on a macbook pro.
I had installed the GoPro app on my Samsung S7 Android phone (latest v8 S/W), and wanted to do the initial setup via this.
Sadly, the GoPro would not connect to the phone, although bluetooth seemed OK.
I tried all the variations suggested here, but was not having any luck...
In the end I uninstalled the Android app, reset the camera connections, then reinstalled the app, & set the wifi band to 2.4.
This time (finally) it worked & I could connect the phone to the camera & setup the wifi connection (pwd as displayed on camera), then control the camera from the phone, transfer media, etc.
It does not seem like a quick & easy process, so I assume many people have had the same problem as me?
I hope the camera/phone connection continues to work from now on...
