unable to update firmware

How long should update take?  GoPro screen keeps going in and out (says it will turn on and off automatically during update).  GoPro screen does not show it is updating but app says it is?  When do I know it is done?  Will app say "done"?  It's been almost 2 hours...

Re: unable to update firmware

you're doing it wirelessly. it  will have to transfer files, right?  then the camera will  do its update it wil lturn on and off a few times, the   smartphone wil  say Finsihed, but the gopro camera will  not be finished until it is  a minute or two later, the whole process   7-9 minutes max   youtube has video;s but does gopro have one on their website? that is the question.
