From what I've read it's a bit risky. Good luck.

Hey Spar, I'm afraid that latest firmware of P3P does not support to downgrade. May I know what issue do you encounter in the firmware? I'd like to help.

Hi Dji Susan its displaying gimbel not connected see photo attached

May I know what's the current firmware of the aircraft, controller and APP? And what's the color of RC status indicator? Please kindly upload a short video if applicable, we'd like to look into it.

You can check the version from here: Launching DJI GO>General Settings>About(make sure the drone and RC powered on and connected). The video I referred above is the issue video, which includes the RC status indicator and aircraft backward LED and About page. It will help us check the current status, thanks!

I can't use my dron anymore.  I can't go to a previous firmware.  There is no solution apparently.
I'll just wait till another DJI Go is released... or better a new firmware.  Bu I doubt there will be a new firmware for P3A.
So, I can just blame me for being stupid enough to make a firmware update that I didn't needed.  May be that is what bothers me most.  The phantom was working perfectly!
Maybe if I just crashed it against a tree or lost it in the middle of the sea I wouldn't be so mad with myself.

IF

   YOUR DRONE WORKS

      DO NOT UPDATE THE FIRMWARE.

   ELSE

      YOUR DRONE MAY NOT WORK ANYMORE

ENDIF

Also, turn off the auto-update feature on the ipad or other tablety thing you use for eyes.

you can still link your Controller manually, read the Dji Phantom Pro manual, there's a little button (on my Dji P3 Advance, sensors) where you have to press 3-5 Seg and then it would connect) is a very little button located in the right side behind gimbal

Didn't worked waiting for a few minutes  (more than ten, actually).  Still disconnected.
I also tried different cables, uninstalled and reinstalled the Dji go app from my phone and tried again.  Tried with my iPad with no luck either.
Susan, thanks for your help, but you should know this dron worked perfectly just before the firmware upgrade.  This has to be firmware related, and as you may already know, I'm not the only one with the exact same problem.
I can't find any Recommended Service Centers in Colombia listed on your support page....
I'll appreciate any further advice.

Generally, the firmware update will not cause hardware glitches. The local team will take care once the unit arrived. Please kindly contact the local dealers or sellers, they will help to send it in as well.

Spar, it seems that the update is still not successful. Please try to format the SD card and update again. If no luck, please export the upgrade log for analysis. You can find it here: SD card>MISC>Log.

Regarding the RC issue, turn off the RC, hold C1+C2+Record Button+ISO Dial, then turn it on again to connect the APP and update from overall status.

Sir, the flashing green/red LED of RC means that the RC has not been updated to the latest firmware successfully. Please refer the second part of my message in 27# and refresh the RC. It should be work.

Hi Susan will it always say abort if the same firmware  is being uploaded?
Mine says it’s up to date firmware but having issues with camera view.
I have been told by DJI support to reload firmware but all I get is fail on result file.

Hey Spar, I'm afraid that latest firmware of P3P does not support to downgrade. May I know what issue do you encounter in the firmware? I'd like to help.

I'm having issues... I can't take pictures or recored??

Hi Susan will it always say abort if the same firmware  is being uploaded?
Mine says it’s up to date firmware but having issues with camera view.
I have been told by DJI support to reload firmware but all I get is fail on result file.

Sorry for the late response as I just read your message. It is normal to get the abort message if the firmware in SD card is same as the aircraft firmware.

As for the camera view, please try to change another recommended mobile device or re-seat the pins on the side of the gimbal to see whether it works. If still no luck, please kindly send the unit in: https://www.dji.com/support

Nitro, could you be more specific about your main issue? Are you trying to take pictures or record on the APP or the buttons on the RC? Which SD card do you use?

Hi Susan,
I am having the same problem "ESC error msg" after i got a crash.  I tried to fly it near the port, there is a lot of barge and vessel nearby.  It says a lot of magnetic interference.   Please help how to solve the problem.  Do you have any FW patch for the Phantom 3 pro.  My current FW is 1.11.20.  

I read somewhere another way is to downgrade the FW.   Do you have any stable FW that I can use to fly the drone without the "ESC error msg".
