How do I reset/downgrade the firmware?

I'm trying to revert back to 1.5 or possible 1.2 so far I've tried to manually update by placing an UPDATE folder with CAMFWV.bin, DATA.bin and FWUPD files in it, but I get an update failed messaged?

 

How do I downgrade my Hero 8?

Re: How do I reset/downgrade the firmware?

GoPro will not help you on that. and most members here just want their posts answered: here goes:

 

1 You need an "UPDATE" folder.

2. all the files of that firmware is in there.

3. in the driver outside the dcim, anywhere paiste it.  

4. you see it on the driver . simply eject the card, put to the camera. turn on. updates 1 of 2, 2 of 2, Done

 

you did exactly that.  exactly what is  checked off and on a SDXC card

Thanks! My windows 10 system was having trouble and freezing when I moved the update folderto my sd card so I instead I did the transfer on my Windows 7 laptop and it works and got the firmware downgraded on my hero 8
