Issues with capture module and QHY163m. Only produces compeltly black photos

I did an update of EKOS / INDI and all its drivers, since then the capture module seems to not work anymore with my QHY163m.

Whenever I take a photo, it takes really long to capture the image (like 30s for a 1s exposure). My guess is it runs into some kind of timeout.
After the roughly 30s a completly black photo is shown (value is 0 for every pixel).

I am not sure what is going on, I recompiled all the INDI drivers again from source and still have the same issue.

Am I the only one with this issue?

I did some more experimenting, seems that even when I hook it up to my laptop, the same happens.
The first exposure works, after that it hangs at "Exposing 0.00s ..." for every other exposure for around 30s and then downloads an empty photo (all pixels = 0)

Also just tried to connect to the camera on windows (using their supplied ascom drivers) and NINA.
The camera never shows up, even in the Windows Device Manager the camera is nowhere to be found.
There is also no sound playing on windows when I plug the QHY163m into the USB of the pc.

Just found that the indi-qhy module / driver is not compiling, which might be causing some of the issues I am having (new sdk with old drivers installed):
