Is it safe to try to update HERO (2014) to latest firmware?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

We have the GoPro HERO (2014) model and are still very happy with it. I've discovered there's been a couple of firmware updates, up to 1.09 currently. Unfortunately, only the latest release notes are available online (And it appears those are not an issue for me as it's something about Mac users and Quik).

Is there any point in upgrading to the latest firmware? I came across this forum thread: https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/GoPro-Hero-Died-after-FW-update/td-p/54508 - no responses there, so it appears risky. At this point in time, warranty is out :) If there's a failure, is there an option to downgrade the firmware back? Are old firmwares available (and their release notes)?

Would appreciate any light on the subject!

Thanks!

JR
