Re: Gopro hero 7 Black overheat after New firmware update 1.70

Due to issues with Hero 7 1.71 up date I've gone back to 1.51. Downloadable from techspot.

Re: Gopro hero 7 Black overheat after New firmware update 1.70

Here's the update after downloading v1.7 update to reflash... good news I can shut down the camera. Bad news I cannot connect to Quik app either on phone or notebook! Tried wifi or usb cable reset reinstall both just won't detect the camera. I am now unable to connect via wifi or usb anymore... this has got to be the worst update ever! previous updates no such issues.🤬

 

Everyone please AVOID v1.7 update! 
Great I just found out after reflash the gopro no longer able to connect to notebook via usb. It only charges when connected.

Re: Gopro hero 7 Black overheat after New firmware update 1.70

Update: shooting in 1080 footage work fine with gimbal with auto low light ON and hypersmooth ON. i only experience 1 time freezing when ending video using gimbal. Shooting above 1080 most the time will freeze.... I think is something due to the new feature hypersmooth or ram even the new chip gh7 black had.

Yes seems too buggy for me lost some crutial shots due to freezing... worst is batt sometimes just goes to zero when it's off!

Re: Gopro hero 7 Black overheat after New firmware update 1.70

My battery was ok. Draining the max 5% sometime still 100% after 24 hrs. i have both vietnam and china battery but notice vietnam battery can hold more charge and have me extra minute of recording. Im ok with it. Just make sure you did re-flashing your camera and turn of wireless, voice command, gps when not using it.

1.7 v. makes me mad. From time to time gopro 7 black doesnt respond to any buttons, I have to reinsert the battery to make it work again. That is crazy.

Re: Gopro hero 7 Black overheat after New firmware update 1.70

I was thinking about upgrading to the Hero 7.  Maybe not until I see some resolutions to these issues.
