Your cam probably could run autoexec.ash or cal.txt while booting...
Are there any files to unbrick the camera? I found some files for Hero 4 black and prior but nothing for Hero 6.

My camera does not acknowledge any button presses, no lights come on, etc but does that mean it is still possibly active to read some type of boot file?

I have read GoPros after 4 do not have ash capability, is this true?

Ambashell script autorun worked with earlier firmwares and was removed in updates.

You'll have to get proper ELF file for recovering your device. By the way, how it was bricked?

Is there a command to turn on the camera?

I have read override.sh may work?

How would you do it via the cal.txt file(tapp/tcal)? Is there a command for turning on the camera and/or writing upgrade files?
