[solved] GoPro App can't install on Android 5.1 (phone as viewfinder/display for GoPro 7 Black)

 

I am not sure if anyone found a better solution to this problem, but this is working on my old Android 5.1 phone.

 

I was able to get the GoPro App to install on my Android 5.1 phone and connect to the GoPro 7 Black, by using this download.

Not everyone has money to buy a new phone.

 

to make this work, I also...

- updated my GoPro using the GoPro Quik App on my laptop

- shared my Android phone wifi with the GoPro through bluetooth

- set wifi to 2.7 on GoPro
