And you also need to do some tweak on the file inside gopro folder. But I already make it simple, you can run a script, just one click. 

 

For windows user you can follow this tutorial : https://youtu.be/klSwlsFjytE

For macOS user , you can follow this tutorial : https://youtu.be/VESFQYzbYo4

 

But, please make sure that you are using firmware version 1.20. If you already upgrade to the latest version, you need to downgrade it. Maybe after gopro release the stable version, then you can upgrade & test. 

 

For downgrade firmware tutorial, you can follow this : https://youtu.be/--7pe3l7MPU

**This firmware file is only for GoPro Hero 8 Black. Please take note that.

I can rename Hero8BlackGPMF.xml, but I can't replay all Hero7 to Hero8 even though I have administrator power.

How can I replace to Hero8 from Hero7 inside the file?

I think you need to check folder permission on your computer. Or maybe you can check my video and try to run my script.
