Re: Hero 3 firmware update

I used two of them in Alaska, continuously running for several hours. As long as I kept feeding them batteries they kept on going at 1080p30.

It also meant having to save 60 gigabytes of data from each camera each day.

Re: Hero 3 firmware update

My Hero 3 black edition locked up 2 or 3 times in the couple of days I owned it until I upgraded the firmware. Since then, I haven't had any problems. The internal battery will run for a good 90 minutEs or so. I'm very happy with the update.

Re: Hero 3 firmware update

So what is the latest firmware? I received an email from GoPro telling me to update the firmware, but when I did, it was showing the same version as I had already installed weeks beforehand. The firmware I have installed is 3.03. Is this the latest firmware?
Thanks,
Bryce

Re: Hero 3 firmware update

If this helps, the MISC>version.txt file on the micro SD card shows:

{
"info version":"1.1",
"firmware version":"HD3.03.02.39",
"wifi version":"3.4.2.9",
"wifi bootloader version":"0.2.2",
"wifi mac":"d896850bc26b",
"camera type":"Hero3-Black Edition",
}

which matches what GoPro says on their web site:

Software Release Information for all Products | GoPro Support

and what I briefly see when the camera is powered on:
v02.39

Both of my H3 Blacks have been working like champs since the recent software upgrades. If you're not sure you have the latest, here is the update page:

Re: Hero 3 firmware update

Fantastic Pete,
Thank you. Yes I was indeed 1 firmware version behind. Nothing too pressing in the latest one, but I think I will update to the latest anyway since it doesn't sound like anyone is having any issues with it. Have you noticed any improvements to the sound quality with the latest firmware? Not that I use the audio generally anyway, just wondering if it is a noticeable change.
Thanks too for the link to the "software release information page" very useful. Don't know why I have never seen it!
Regards,
Bryce

Re: Hero 3 firmware update

Never had any issues with my Hero 3 black.
(There was also a recent firmware update released just a few weeks ago)
