Hero 5 Black firmware update RED LIGHTs

[ Edited ]

So I tried to manually update my hero 5 black with a 64gb PNY card, same as I have always done. This time update went to 2/2 then turned itself off and then two red lights flashing. I removed battery and tried to update again but gopro wont turn back on, just two solid red lights. Please help

Please delete, solved. I didn't realize the new firmware update bricked itself when I was using third party battery.. Thanks gopro! Used original gopro battery and was able to complete update. Now I have to buy new batteries because they arent compatible.
