Follow these steps to install the new firmware v1.3.0:

1. Use the same Class 10 or higher MicroSD card you use in your SJ8 PRO (U3 recommended):

2. Download the attached file below and extract the contents from the zipped file to your computer.

3. Copy the firmware files to your MicroSD card, and make sure you have at least 50% power on your camera's battery.

4. Insert the card into the camera. 

5. Turn the camera on, and the installation process will begin. 

You don't need to do anything, a message will show next that the camera is checking the firmware files and proceed. 

Once done, the camera will soon restart into the new firmware.

The firmware files will automatically be deleted from the card, and you may use your camera immediately.

You may verify that the new firmware is installed by going to General Settings > Version
