Hero 4 Silver hangs after v5.0 update

I recently updated my GoPro Hero 4 Silver to version 5.0. However, 50% of the time now, whenever I turn on my GoPro, it hangs or gets stuck during startup. I have to remove and reinsert the battery every time this happens. And like I said, this happens half the time I turn on the GoPro. It's getting annoying specially since I can't exactly do this on water.

Anyone else have the same issues? Anyone got any suggestions how to fix this?

Thanks!

Re: Hero 4 Silver hangs after v5.0 update

I do have this issue after update.  However, it only happens if I was using the quik capture (pressing the Record button to turn on GoPro to start recording).

 

I have no issue if I turn on / off the camera using the front power button.

Re: Hero 4 Silver hangs after v5.0 update

**bleep**. Well I can confirm it happens to me at least 50% of the time. It's very annoying. I've never used quick capture by the way. Also tried reformatting the card using the GoPro too, thinking it would help, but no difference.

Re: Hero 4 Silver hangs after v5.0 update

I have same problem using quik capture. Also noticed display dimms and then turns off after a short time. This is not good when using underwater. How can I revert back to previous version?

yes, a rollback feature to the old version would be nice
