SolvedXiaomi Dafang Hacks New Wyze V2 cannot load CFW

Looks like WYZE V2 cameras that have had newer firmware loaded on them do not allow CFW to install properly. Doing so returns:
solid orange light for ~3s. a click, light blinks out briefly after another 3s, and repeat.
Loading an older official firmware prior to CFW does not improve things

If there is a method around this, I'd love to hear it, as these devices are worthless to me with firmware that requires external connectivity (all the official firmware). I've seen a few other people describe this in a few different places, but no one seems to respond and (at least in git) the issue gets closed as stale. :(

Currently I have 3x Wyzev2 2ANJHWYZEC2 which all work fine with cfw-1.1.bin. I purchased 4x Wyzev2 last week that were 2ANJHWYZEC02 and they all experienced the bootloop with cfw-1.1.bin.

I found users on the Wyze Forums reporting a similar bootloop a few months back when attempting to use the latest RTSP firmware on newer purchased cameras. Subsequently an update to the RTSP firmware was released to fix the issue.

At your own risk, here is an updated demo.bin that has been based on the latest RTSP firmware with SD card mounting fixes thanks to @mbevand

So far I've flashed this on 2 of the new purchased cameras with 2ANJHWYZEC02 and have successfully booted into the latest firmware_mod. It also boots into the stock (RTSP) firmware as well without an SD-card/mod installed (though I haven't gone through the 'scan qr code' setup, but setup button triggers setup voice)
