IP Address Changer
for GoPro Hero 3+ Black cameras
GoPro cameras normally operate as a Wifi host with a fixed IP address of 10.5.5.9. This utility is designed to allow the user to change the IP address of each camera in a multiple networked camera installation. If you don't know why you would need to do this, you don't need this utility.
The IP Address Changer only works with the Hero 3+ Black camera and absolutely requires firmware version HD3.11.01.04 and Wifi version 22.214.171.124, released October 15, 2013. No older or newer firmware will work with this utility.
For firmware version HD3.11.02.00 and Wifi version 126.96.36.199, released March 6, 2014 use the new IPChanger for Wifi 188.8.131.52.
Check camera firmware version
Before beginning, please follow the steps below to make sure your camera and SD card are ready to begin:
Patch the WiFi Firmware
Use this utility at your own risk! The user agrees that there is significant risk that patching firmware and updating the camera can damage the camera permanently and in a way not covered by the GoPro warranty. The user agrees not to hold the website owner or software authors responsible in any way.
You must upload the file WF3.11-app.bin that you extracted from the update.zip folder downloaded from GoPro. This is the GoPro firmware for the camera WiFi operation.
Enter the desired IP address. Addresses in the form 10.x.5.y are possible.
Click the Upload button to continue.
After uploading your old bin file, you will be able to download a custom zip file created for your camera with a new IP address. This file will be used to update the camera.
The IP address will be changed permanently. To revert to the original address, just install the GoPro update again or create a custom binary with the address 10.5.5.9.
FAQ and Troubleshooting
The camera is not switching to update when I turn it on.
This may be the result of hidden characters introduced when you downloaded the command file. The best way is to download the zip file and drag files from the zip folder to the SD card.
Other reasons for scripts not working: 1. The camera is plugged into a USB charger. 2. The camera is not set to default to power on in photo mode. 3. Your SD card is incompatible with the update procedure.
