Went on a travel trip... still same problems even after numerous reflash as advised by support.
- Cannot connect usb to notebook any other notebook
- Overheats while recording even in 1080p
- Can't shut down properly batt will just drain to zero.
- Faced 2 times recording freeze which never happened before v1.7 update
Everything was fine before update & I could record long time even in 4K 60fps no issues.

Finally re-flashed back to v1.61 from the hopeless v1.7.
Happy to report my WiFi + USB is working + I can turn off normal again.
Now left only monitor if battery drain is back to pre v1.7 then I'll be super happy!
Skip v1.7 everyone for a peaceful mind.

As I read the thread. GoPro should have contacted you asked for the camera, and given you a fully trsted on that they said htey tried on. then drag you two weeks on trying to resolve the issue with you. I was going to say if your serial is on the camera then you would need to de-install in Device manager the usb port you plugged into and restart the usb por twould have reloaded and if the camera recognized. not one mention of that from gopro. Reverting is not what Gopro likes people to do but it resolved your issue so do you think FW 1.7 plus or higher will be correctly loaded or more issues on your sam camera.

Good news... ever since re-flashed back to v1.61 firmware everything back to normal even my battery didn't drain to zero after 4 days off. Those facing issues with v1.7 please try revert back to v1.61 if you never faced any issue before update. So happy back to my shootings with GP7B.
- Battery doesn't drain to zero in a day
- No freezing after recording long time
- Not overheating
- Shuts down properly after red notification light
