Thank you very much, I'm worried because someone said that it was bad for the camera to take later updates... or even that it took away the guaranty that the camera would be up to date.

@sinay4pegs Yeah, well that's something important to take in account, I just saw an old post where the affected user decided to rollback a firmware version and GoPro in two consecutive advices that was giving didn't even warn or disapprove because of the guaranty.

I've read it many times over this forum and others this "rolling back" method but no worries mentioned in that concern.

I guess I'm so used to "rollback" my computer to solve also its problems that I assume is more or less the same, like an operating system of a PC when formatted to scratch all the bugs go away.

@sinay4pegs you should read the GoPro instructions with pictures and all, it's easy to get lost if it's the first time, all it takes is to acces the instructions is to give your serial code of the camera:

Manual Update
Note: Useful for updating or reinstalling camera software. 

  1. Go to the https://gopro.com/en/gt/update/hero9-black
  2. Under "Other ways to update" at the base of the page, click "Update your camera manually."
  3. Enter your Serial Number and other requested information, click Next Step.
  4. Click "Download Update."
  5. Click "Click here to download firmware."
  6. Follow the steps on the screen for detailed instructions for your operating system.

PD: note, this is explained in the instructions, but in case maybe the folder to install it's called something else apart from "UPDATExxxx" I believe its important to correct it and edit the name of the folder to "UPDATE" for the camera to recognize the file.
