comment connecté gopro 8 en bluetooth android 4.1.1?

Bonjour,

J'ai une gopro hero 8black - et un téléphone Hauwei P9 Android 4.1.1.

1) l'application Gopro sur google store indique que mon téléphone n'est pas comptabible avec l'application.

 

2) je l'utilise pour filmer du live, j'ai besoin d'une connexion tout dispo = bluetooth.

 

MA QUESTION:

- comment connecter GOPRO HERO 8, en bluetooth avec téléphone Huawei P9 Androir 4.1.1 ?

 

( J'ai essayé sans succés avec une ancienne version d'app GOPRO pour gopro hero 6 et avec Camera remote, sans succés)

 

Merci pour votre aide.

Thanks for the prompt answer, it's the first thing I checked, I'm fully updated on my Hauwei P9 phone with Android 4.1.1, unfortunately.

 

I was hoping the bluetooth connection would do the trick, even with a 4.1.1 Android device...is it possible,

 

I don't need a wifi connection, but rather a bluetooth connection, I'm musician filming live.

Sorry floks! 

I've just realized that through Ihuwei care, you can update the Android from 4.1.1 to Nougat android 7, so, will do that and come if I manage the operation without busting my phone...

Re: comment connecté gopro 8 en bluetooth android 4.1.1EMUI( sorry) = Android 6

I realized browsing that I can install a version 7 Nougat of Android on my Huawei P9, and thus, hopefully, become compatable for the recent GoPro app, for my Hero 8.

Will let you know if it works out or if I complety bust my phone in the process...

Hi folks,

As planned, I recked my phone playing apprentice sourcerer, LOL, nothing dramatic,I'll have a specialiste return the beast to its normal behaviour.

 

I'm pretty sure that if your phone doesn't upgrade it's because it just can't ! LOL

 

you out there, if you ever want to root your phone, make sure you write down every little detail about your phone in the phone info, and in doubt, don't do it, there are an inumerable number of different roms, stock roms, firmwares out there, according to date, country and so on, it's a nightmare, I'm  not doing that again any time soon, lol. A great experience though, learnt a lot, but not sure I'll be able to put my phone back in order. Will let you know.

Re: comment connecté gopro 8 en bluetooth android 6 -

Hi Folks,

to cut a long story short : don't root your phones, if the phone does not update to a higher version of Android, it's because it can't, and if you do manage to work out something, it will heat up and pressurise all the components, don't do it.

 

I spent a month without a phone, professionals tried to repair it, in vain. 

As planned, I actually busted my 500€ Huawei P9 playing mister Know-all and trying to root it with a Nougat ROM to artificially move from Android 6 to Android 7 , as stated in the release about this unofficial upgrade. 

No professionnal as been able to repair my phone, though they have the official Huawei codes to do it.

So, don't ever root your phones if you don't know exactly what you are doing.

 

I have had to buy another phone with Android 10, so no problem at all there, that 'll teach to play Mister smart ass.

 

Have a great day.
