New Hero 5 Black after update to 1.50 wont pair with iPhone 5s / iPad Air.

After update, camera is turned on, and after this can't connect with iphone/ipad.
How I can downgrade software? Cause for now its... ammm... impossible to shoot.

Re: New Hero 5 Black after update to 1.50 wont pair with iPhone 5s / iPad Air.

Yes, and I'm the same. 

I'm in GoPro's development program, 

and the HERO5 is a whole new game lesson after

most people just finished the HERO4. lol

I would say the most stable version is V1.5

might not seem like it, but it is in a couple features.

Also try removing the app off your phone or if

on android clear the data and delete it then install it gain.

Sorry to hear about that @vertex.

So after updating it's best to reset the wifi setup, 

and start from setup again, and re-pairing the device

as a new camera, this might help. Also

you can't downgrade. In my work with lots of GoPro's.

I keep a folder of every Firmware update, for that reason. 

 

Hope that helps.

Chris.

It's not a problem) as developer I can understand it)) Maybe you know last stable version for GoPro Hero 5?

PS: I tried reset to factory settings and reset communications settings.

I had the same issue. My GP 5 Black would not pair with an iPad Mini 2. I reset the connections on the camera and it worked after that. I also use an Android phone. I had to delete the camera from the Capture app for Android and add it back in after resetting the conections. Now I can connect with either my iPad or my Android phone (but not both at the same time).

I have been having the same issue with my Gopro hero 5. Just after the recent update, I can't seem to turn on its wifi connection.

 

Hopefully this can be fixed asap.

Removing app from devices and reinstall them + reset wireless communication return wifi-connection to live. Not understandable only how connect via Bluetooth only. And/or it's impossible now. Hero5 is too fresh for now.
