Thanks for your quick answear.

 

I tried to register my serial number, but the red frame around the checkbox didn't dissapear; the system doesn't like my number I assume...

Thank you!

Hi @hardyflame30844

 

Thank you for choosing GoPro to capture great moments!

 

You may refer to this link for the manual software update. Instructions will be listed once you get past the serial number and email address page.

 

Alternatively you may pair your camera to your phone and update via the GoPro app.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

 

Regards!
