Only if the battery is fully charged, leak a few volts and it'll be fine.......

GoPro Hero (2018) easily convert to a Hero 5 Black with simple firmware update!!

I don't know if any one is aware but you can convert a standard Hero 2018 to a Hero 5 Black with a simple firmware update.

NOTE: I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS SO NO WARRANTY   :smiley: ......

Full details here : https://www.reddit.com/r/goprohack/comments/8wpe49/gopro_hero_1080p_2018_to_hero_5_black_firmware/
OR
Download folder from here : https://www.hotukdeals.com/visit/threaddesc/3035525/15884025

The process is as follows:
- Download the 'UPDATE' folder from the above Google Drive link. This should contain 4 files. Place the entire folder onto a blank, formatted micro sd.

- Place the sd in the camera and power it up. It will run through the update process, restarting and black screening several times and taking anywhere betwee 3-10 mins, be patient and don't be tempted to press anything!

- Camera will eventually boot as a fully fledged Hero 5 Black. Turn it off. Remove the SD and delete the UPDATE folder. I reformatted just to be sure.

- Place it back in the GoPro and go video something cool in 4K 30 fps

Sounds a bit like DJI crippling the Naza Lite and a FW update to use as full V2 version. Same hardware just downgraded by FW!!!
I try :-)

this is a common for a lot of things
i have a vauxhall insignia and the factory sat navs have a few different models at different price points, same hardware just software upgrades to unlock new features
and same for some car engines, they map the engines for different outputs
