high saturation after 7 black update

GoPro Hero 7 Black. Purchased 1/8/2019 and recorded some test shots to determine premiere pro settings to match with my a6500. Flat profile was working fine. 

 

Updated firmware on 1/9/2019 and now the flat profile is saturated and the GoPro color profile is incredibly saturated with high contrast. Is there any way to revert back to the last firmware update or is there any fix for this? The high saturation in flat color mode are making it incredibly difficult to get an accurate match. 

 

Here are a few images to show flat before, flat after, and GoPro color after the update. Also a screengrab from Premiere Pro to show that no color modifications have been made. These clips are transcoded to cineform to playback easier in Premiere Pro. Stacking them with the original files off the card shows no color change.  

 

Flat before update:

Re: high saturation after 7 black update

Is there any solution to this problem? As it is right now, the camera does not have a usable color profile right off the card. EVERYTHING recorded needs some type of correction. This is unacceptable for a brand new product.
