    To upgrade the firmware properly, follow the steps carefully:

    1. Power the camera off.
    2. Remove the battery and the MicroSD card from the camera.
    3. Reformat the MicroSD card using the FAT32 file format* on your computer.
    4. Copy the firmware files into the root directory of your MicroSD card.
    5. Reinsert the SD card to your camera.
    6. Reinsert the battery.
    7. Connect the camera with charger, the camera will be upgraded automatically
    8. After the firmware update is completed remove the SD card from the camera and format it again on your computer, make sure to use the FAT32 file format*.

    *We recommend to do the format under Windows or MAC, some Linux users are getting problems updating because the format is not correct.

    EXCELLENT news! I had just bought the motorcycle charger casing for my SJ5000+ camera, and was thinking that now the only drawback to this camera is the limited storage of 32GB. I mostly use the camera when kayak fishing, and it's risky to switch out batteries and memory cards when out on the water. Now I can power the camera with a larger 12v battery and a 64GB microSD card should be plenty of storage for a typical fishing trip.

    Thank you for this, SJCAM!
