Smart Remote firmware upgrade needed

I have a Smart Remote(2 button) with firm version 2.12. I need to upgrade to version 2.17 or higher to work with

Hero 5 Black.  The remote will connet/pair with Hero 5, yet only shows a wifi icon blinking on the LCD.
Any instructions on updating firmware from 2.12 to 2.17 with HERO 5 Black. Thanks...
