Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

the thing with the FPS is because you change from NTSC to PAL... 

 

NTSC you have 240 - 120 - 100 - 90 - 80 - 60 - 48 -30 -24

PAL you have - 240 - 120 - 100- 90 - 80 - 50 - 48 - 25 - 24

Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

My 3rd party batteries don't work anymore after the update.  I wonder if gopro disabled 3rd party battery use?  Anyone else having this issue on the Hero5 black?

Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

It only took a few minutes for me.  I don't know what the benefits are but if you use 3rd party batteries don't upgrade or you won't be able to use them.  Not sure if you can step back the firmware.

Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

It took about 10 minutes for me. Make sure you are in a place where you have a good Wi-Fi connection to your phone, at least 3 steady bars. Also have the GoPro within 5 feet of your phone and no movement. From the other comments, it sounds like you should have a GoPro battery installed and fully charged. The exclamation mark doesn't sound good. Can you do a factory reset and try the update again?
