There are 3rd party solutions out there to fix this issue while awaiting GoPro to update their software. Schierconcepts actually make an upside down frame for the GoPro 5, 6, & 7. Moonshuttle make an upside down case for the GoPro 3 & 4.
Unfortunatley updating software to fit users needs actually takes quite a while. Not only does the extra software have to be written, fit into the existing code, but then you have to have compatibility with every single combination of devices out there. I mean seriously, think about how many phones & tablets are out there running Android for instance. Everything from major manufactures to cheaper produced unknown brands that have flooded the market and all the different hardware combinations for each of those devices. It does take a while for even what seems to be a simple update.
However from what I've seen, GoPro does actually pay attention to these forums and what people are saying. So please continue to leave feedback and suggested improvements for the devices. Just remember that sometimes Occam's razor may need to be employed and that the simplest solution may be correct solution. In this case, an inverted GoPro frame.

Read the thread above.
It seems the "solution" is to buy a crappy upside down aftermarket frame for your camera.
I took a look at it, it was something like $40 and didn't look like something I would trust my $400+ camera in mounted to a helmet.
GoPro marketed this as a live stream capable camera, but definitely did NOT do the work when they developed it.
It can ONLY be posted to your personal FB page,(or Youtube acoount) and ONLY streams in the UPRIGHT position...It is pretty live stream UNfriendly. There are some work arounds, but they are a PITA and some only work in conjuction with a laptop not a cell phone.
Very little or very poor effort was put into that for a camera that was released in 2018..not 2008...

I'm glad to hear GoPro has seen this and is aware of the problem. Thanks for posting here.
I looked at the most recent software update and I don't see anything reference our issue.
Has any progress been made to correct this?
