As promised you can find the update files on the following link : 

 

[Edit: Link Removed]

 

I've already renamed it and updated my camera with these files with success.

Just unzip and copy these 3 files to the root of your micro sdcard and start camera.

Camera reboots 3 times during the update. 

Connection with gopro app finally works now.

Feedback is appreciated.

 

Case closed !

Enjoy !

The saddest thing happened to me while updating my hero 3, it shut down after update and never turned back on. The battery first heated up a lot after update while it seemed off, then the cam cooled down. My gopro is now dead.

 

I must say that I didn't use this update but an update someone send over to me after my previous request for an update, maybe it was a different file, maybe it was the same. I don't know, but it wasn't the right one.

 

Before I tried this update my camera took photo's and videos, i was just unable to connect the gopro to the app on my phone, but after the update it doesnt even turn on anymore.

 

I since tried all kinds of resets, plugging it into different cords, but it doesn't respond anymore. None of the buttons does anything anymore.

 

The only think my cam does when i plug it into a power outlet is blink the red LED light on the back for a second or so, and whenever i press a button it also lights up, but ONLY when the cam is connected to a power outlet. 

 

I'm so sad, does anyone have a solution for this or a similar experience?

Re: Hero3 White Update

I was so relieved when I saw ' updating' appear in the little screen instead of an error message, it flickered with it's lights and turned off like I expected, but then it just went dead.

 

Is there any way to solve this?

did it restart 3x ?

You can try to remove files from sd card with pc and pull out battery.

Place battery and card again and start.

works ?
