bought my hero 3 white november last year.

updated it.

just today when filming and trying to put it to camera mode it froze...

had to remove the battery and out it back together and it went to updating with no percentage showing.

tried to wait it to finish but it didnt after 1 hour, so i removed battery again, still updating, removed the battery and sd card, power on and it still updates.

whats wrong with my unit, updating screen and red flashes wont go away, cant use mt gopro anymore unless i use wifi and iphone.

settings can be done but the updating screen still shows up in the background.

cant use the unit buttons too.

I have met the same trouble. The solution for me is use Tuneskit iOS System Recovery. It is designed for all iOS users to fix iOS in multiple situations like iPhone stuck in White Apple logo, recovery mode, black/blue/white/locked/frozen/boot loop screen, headphone mode, iOS update failure, etc. in several seconds. You can have a try depend on own needs.
