Thanks, I can confirm that copying the entire "FOLDER" on the SD root, the update process starts on my Gopro Hero 7 Silver.

Now camera seems more fast and reactive: I hope it was a good solution for the topic subject too ;)

Re: [bug] Content view blocks the camera

It seems I can write to you a good news:

- gopro contents view seems stable

- gopro > android (oneplus 3) connection seems more stable 

 

I hope ;)
