Please help!!
I'm afraid you are stuck with the usual steps: format the card, and/or try another card. It's amazing how many freezes during recording are caused by cards that are (a) corrupted and need formatting, (b) are too slow, or (c) counterfeit, leading to (a) and/or (b).

If it's freezing without a card, you most likely have a hardware-damaged unit, and firmware reflashing will not help here. The only advice is to check for corrosion on the herobus connector, which can short out if wet or rusted (especially towards the bottom of the connector, where the power pins are). Aside from this, you can call them and see if they'll replace the camera.
