Wifi update issue

I recently found my old Hero3 Silver. I can’t remember the wifi passoword and have followed the instrictions on updating it. However, the camera will not update. I’ve tried it several times with no success. Any suggestions?

Re: Wifi update issue

Hello @boldwater60115

 

I gather you have downloaded the UPDATE.zip folder from the website and extracted the UPDATE folder from it? If you have, drag the files inside the extracted UPDATE folder to your formatted SD card. This means the SD card must have only the update files (not folder). Let us know how it goes. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
