The following happened with both Android app versions 2.25.31 and 2.26.22.
All of my v2 Black and v3 cams failed to upgrade to the latest firmware on the first try. Eventually, all but one of them did update. One v2 black cam just kept failing to update. This cam was/is at 22.214.171.1248 before the failed attempt to update to 126.96.36.1991. Despite the failed update, the unit continued to stream video and record events until today. Today, it stopped streaming and just flashed blue. Tried power cycle (left uplugged for 2+ minutes), force close Android app, clear app cache, remove device, re-add device fails with flashing blue ‘attempt to connect timed out’. I actually see the cam join my wireless network and then drop off! Did a 10-sec factory reset – same behavior. It’s effectively bricked. I’m not going to try manually flashing unless Wyze steps up with some advice here.
I have two other v2 Black cams. They both eventually updated to 188.8.131.521 and neither has stopped streaming.
I’ve lost several hours to this. Super frustrating. Is anyone else experiencing this? Thanks.
