Re: Karma grip lights - red solid white flashing?

For users of Windows 8 and below, you can manually update the Karma Grip here https://gopro.com/help/articles/solutions_troubleshooting/Karma-Grip-Stuck-in-Recovery-Mode-After-Up...

Re: Karma grip lights - red solid white flashing?

https://gopro.com/help/articles/solutions_troubleshooting/Karma-Grip-Stuck-in-Recovery-Mode-After-Up...

Using this guide I did updated karma grip. But after update red light is on (first one) and white is flashing (last one).

 

Under macos it says that karma grip is updated. But it doesn't work!

 

When I try to start it. It moves for millisonds and stops. Red light is on (1st led) & white is blinking (4th led).
