Any folks done upgrading to V1.7?
Do share us a post & the experience of it. I am working right now & tonight I will give it a try to install the update. Hope gopro is REALLY providing something that will SOLVE & WORK for us.

why do you ask here this?...do you think will solve the heat?
yes I did...in the previous post minutes ago I said I've just made the upgrade to 1.70.
I made it, as I'm making every upgrade since h5, manually, with factory reset, SD card formated in laptop, etc.
to me this is the way.
I saw some a mocking this manual upgrade, trust me, makes the difference.
and also Samsung Evo works better than Sandisk Extreme - could be the production batch differences....
there are already post about 1.70
will be hard to test the stab at sub freezing
as per the general bug fiixing...we will see...

Of course i am asking here to gather more feedback/info/inputs. Gopro team also suggested we update & test out in order to provide feedback. Anything wrong with this?
I am not from gopro support team, of course i don't know what exactly the changes in the FW. I just hope it can clear all my issues (battery drain + overheating). As simple as that.

Well the camera gets warm but I personally have had no issues over the week I have had it and temps have been in the 30+ degreec C here recordeded a 4k 60fps timewarp for 3/4 of an hour without issue brought 2 sd cards Samsung Evo Plus 64 Gig and a 128 Gig of same brand and type

I meant why in this post if there are already 1.70 posts started, were people reports results.
I get you point, if something change with overheating.
If it is quiet today in da office, I might run a new test in 1.70 to see if diffeneces from 1.61
@brentb57153 I'm with you in the same page here...
Even mine reach 129 F (54C), I have never had problems as freezing, not responding.

with Samsung Evo plus 256GB
in a 25 C office (77 F)
at 4K 50fps
after 20min 52 C = 126 F
after 30min 54 C = 129 F
after 35min 54 C = 129 F - so entered in a stady situation....
in the same 25 C office (77 F)
I took the battery out as soon as I stopped the test.
the battery is also 54C (129F) as the front of the camera.
I said in the previous post that I suspect also the battery discharge is producing a high amount of heat when the consumption is high.
