When it comes to installing this release, save and unzip the downloadable archive, transfer the newly-created “UPDATE” folder onto a formatted memory card, safely remove it from your computer, and insert it into the camera while it’s powered off.Now, if you turn on Go Pro’s HERO3 unit, the device will automatically cycle through a number of beeps, reboot once, and if all has been done properly, it should show an “UPDATING” message on its display.
It used to work just fine, but after the stupid software update, which was supposed to make it better, it seems to be dead in the water.
Hello, I have a Go Pro Hero 3 (Silver Edition) and I used the manual firmware update method described on the Go Pro website.
The update failed and I retried to apply the same update again, which failed once again. I think the firmware is now corrupted with mixed old & new parts.
I tried at least 10 times (with 3 different SD card brands) to perform the procedure. The camera has now multiple issues: 1) It will not turn ON when I press the power button, even if I remove/re-insert the battery.
Sometimes (very random) it will start using the shutter-pressed hard-reset method.
