Where i can download original firmware (1.0.0) for Hero Black 8?

Where i can download original firmware (1.0.0) for Hero Black 8?

With 1.2.0 and 1.6.0 i can not connect it to PC.

 

Many people use Gopro cameras on events and they automate process of recording and downloading videos from camera via wifi with PC.

It works fine with 6,7 hero black, why did you remove this func in 8 camera?

Hi @toughstar65158

 

We do not suggest installing an older version.

If you are having trouble importing files, please check the links below:

How to Import Camera Files to a Computer - Windows 10

Camera is Not Recognized on Quik for desktop - Windows

 

You may also reach out to our Support Team through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs for further assistance.

 

Thanks!

A camera company can not give you the factory FW 1.00 firmware  no one here has it and if some did liek their Inhouse Beta testers they never leaked it to anyone.   

 

So if you want  it  get a Warranty replacement going.  I would not want F 1.00 as it offers  less then the cameras fw 1.20 no  Hypersmooth 2.0 at all.
