WYZEV2 Cam tricky to hack but still viable

It seems many have had recent trouble getting the latest shipped Wyze V2 variant to allow any mods to work, but it still can be done. The key is that the expected documented Dafang Hack response or even native Firmware updates are different than previously reported.
Upon loading the initial demo.bin boot loader file, the camera seems to lock up with blinking yellow light and never seems to properly finish the firmware upload. The same is true when subsequently adding the Hack Mod directory as the camera basically seemed to no longer load firmware. However after several hours of random SD card write protect events and fiddling at other load sequences attempts and downgrading, etc., I noticed that my router had already connected the camera many hours before. I then simply had to login with ID and PW via Firefox at a new Tab URl and the cam is now able and present anytime I launch DWC Cam tab.
Pretty happy overall and glad to get rid of handicapped Android phone approach.
