If you used the wrong firmware it would probably not work.
There are 3 versions of the GC model, each with their own firmwares, the 2 latest ones as i recall the newest firmwares are from 2019, the ? is if your model are a V2 or a V3 model.

Ok.

i found this reply from Jokiin....
the V3 download is for your camera, the firmware is the same version that is on your camera now

I am worried that if I upload the latest version from street guardian usa I will brick the camera.
any input is appreciated.
thanks guys

As i recall wrong firmware on these cameras do not brick them like Ambarella based cameras, it just dont work until you load a working firmware.
The AMBA cameras you have some hoop jumping to do if you brick it, meaning you need a .elf file and connect camera to PC and use USB direct to flash with .elf file.
On the novatek cameras like the GC model, you just use another ( correct file ) if you flashed with a wrong one.
