To all those who - like me - deeply regret having updated the old iOS GoPro app to the new Capture, I found a method to get it back. It's a rather complicated process but I got it to work, and now I have my old GoPro app which doesn't require any login or Internet connection to control my camera. Follow the instructions on this site: .., it's my first post here and I am not allowed to put links or images).
A couple notes:
- Open your browser (to read the instructions) and iTunes BEFORE you start Fiddler, otherwise you'll get certificates error, and iTunes will crash when connecting to the App Store
- If you end up downloading the app (instructions tell you to stop the download right after it starts), no worries, just delete the app from iTunes (so you can download it again when needed)
- You can skip the entire part to find the ID of the old app: it's 818405041, which corresponds to GoPro app 126.96.36.1992
- When you're done, you will have an app in iTunes called GoPro but with the Capture icon
- As suggested in the instructions, copy the .ipa file from your iTunes folder into a temp folder, open it with WinZip and delete the metadata file from it (keep copies of the original .ipa just in case). Remove the app from iTunes, drag the edited .ipa into iTunes and finally drag the GoPro app on your phone.
I really think GoPro lost its bearing and in an effort to appeal to wider audiences, they are alienating their most devoted customer base.
