Updating

I have tried to update the hero 4 (silver), in order to use it with the karma drone. However every time I try to update it gets stuck on 66% and doesnt update anymore

Re: Updating

Is it getting stuck while updating through the controller?

Try doing a manual update to the camera while it is disconnected.

At the bottom of the page

Using a USB or SD card reader, format your SD card in your computer. Download and extract the Updateto your computer. Place the Update folder (not Update.zip) onto the newly formatted SD card. Eject the card and then put it in the fully charged camera. Turn the camera on and the update should run. If you have issues, it might be your SD card. Be sure to use one from this list https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/microSD-Card-Considerations
