No preview in GoPro App while it keeps saying starting preview. & everything gets stuck when trying to start recording video?

I updated all 3 devices: the gopro hero 2 itself, the WiFi bacpak & the remote are all up to date to the to the latest software according to cineform.
the app is working fine, I am able to change modes, take pictures in burst mode and normal stills mode, but I am not able to start recording video, whenever I try to record video using the app it just doesn't start recording and the LCD shows the camera logo and everything else gets stuck until I remove the battery and insert it again. Also the main problem is that "starting preview" keeps rolling and it doesn't show anything else, not matter how much time I wait. please help!

Actually I just fixed this, I

Actually I just fixed this, I had a feeling the update proccess of the gopro hasn't finished completely. I just turned off the gopro, turned it on while holding both buttons and then it got into this soft reset mode (with version number on the lcd screen), it blinked a few times, rebooted, then blinked again and then turned on and everything seems to work. I have a preview and everything else works.

I experienced the same

I experienced the same problem with the preview not being available. Soft resetting the GoPro worked like a charm. Got everything working now.

no preview

I've tried all of the above several times. I've gone thru the update process with gopro and wifi bac and to the best of my knowledge have succeeded in the updates. Any other ideas? :O

Thanks

I'm having the same problem,

I'm having the same problem, I updated my GoPro but my Wifi Back Pack was up to date cause it didn't say update. I can connect with my iphone and everything and control it but it keeps saying starting preview but i can take pictures and vids but I can't see them after i took them and the preview keeps saying starting preview. I also did the soft reset but that didn't change anything. I hope someone can solve this.

Thanks
