Re: Hero 7 Update 1.61 via App does not work

You have to be off the mobile app and be on full and head over to what is called Gopro.cone/productupdate

Re: Hero 7 Update 1.61 via App does not work

OK just updated it via QUIK on a computer.

Also found the manual update file. (I was just looking for it on my phone, not on a computer)

Everything worked now.

But that should be fixed with an update on the APP for the phone.

I found the firmware at www.gopro.com after scrolling down and clicking.   

 

A search can also help.

I don't have a computer and no memory card slot on my phone either. Anyway I'll be able to update the firmware for my H7B ? Updating from the app is not working.

Use someone's laptop / tower for 1-2 minutes.

Does this app not actually work on android?? I've never had so much trouble connecting a device.

Re: Hero 7 Update 1.61 via App does not work

Hello @agilemesa5841. The GoPro App works on Android devices with OS Android 6.01 or later. The troubleshooting steps here https://gopro.com/help/articles/solutions_troubleshooting/GoPro-App-Camera-Connection-Troubleshootin... should help reset the connection between your phone and the camera. Let us know how it goes. Thanks!
