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 126.96.36.1998 before the failed attempt to update to 188.8.131.521. 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 184.108.40.2061 and neither has stopped streaming.
I’ve lost several hours to this. Super frustrating. Is anyone else experiencing this? Thanks.
The IP address is not already in use. I have directly confirmed this by watching as the cam receives an IP via DHCP but fails to complete setup and eventually drops from my router’s list of connected devices.
Pulled the trigger so to speak, updated All the rest of my V2’s and Pan Cam.
4 needed power cycled to update of the V2’s and the Pan Cam V1 also needed power cycled.
All 7 V2’s and the V1 Pan Cam are running current firmware.
Also updated the other 16 V3’s all to latest version firmware.
