Lets face it. You have a thousand passwords to remember. You also have a GoPro and decided to try out the GoPro iOS app. After some time, you’ll forget it if you didn’t document it and go a while without using your GoPro – like I did.
Without further ado, I show you a shortcut on how to reset the wifi SSID and password for the GoPro. Its actually a pretty simple process – we can even bypass using the GoPro Website.
Also don’t forget to check out thisisepic.com. A really cool new community where you can upload your GoPro Videos and share them.
Step 1. Download the update files
Enter your name and email to download the files.
Step 2. Edit your details
You’ll want to unzip the
UPDATE folder and then go inside the resulting UPDATE folder and open the file called
settings.in with a text editor (I use sublime). You only need to edit two settings (SSID and Password). See picture below:
Step 3. Transfer files to the GoPro
Only transfer the two files called
update.cmd over to your GoPro memory card. Make sure the memory card is then inside the GoPro.
Step 4. Restart your GoPro
Turn your GoPro off then back on. It should say something about updating wifi. You should be all set.
Once these 4 simple steps are completed, you’ll just want to test the connection. Turn the GoPro wifi on and try to connect with your laptop or your phone.
