I was wondering if you could somehow get the Hero 8 firmware on the Hero 7 since they have the same internals. Have any of you guys tried it? Thanks in advance!

This will need a fair bit of effort to get it to work - ie, programming knowledge etc.
Its been done in the past with previous GoPro's but you need to know what you are doing otherwise you will risk bricking your unit.

Personally I wouldn't bother.

Give it a try the camera may say wrong firmware.
GoPro has a very good reson and there has to to be a answer from them why certain things will not work on the Hero 7 with the Hero 8.

Yes be great to have the Icons move, be great to have timewarp live, on the Hero 7. etc...

they might have same internals, but 8 has more RAM, which is neccessary for improved hypersmooth and some other functions. not doable
