I just had this issue. i got it working

1) choose the "AI Thinker ESP-32 CAM"
2) remove the comment for "#define CAMERA_MODEL_AI_THINKER"
3) make sure all other devined models are commented out <<<< this was my mistake WROVER_KIT was still uncommented. by the camera logic on the camera_pins.h page it didnt matter that i had uncommented out anything else it hit the first if statement and exited selecting the WROVER_KIT every time.

It should look like this and it flashes a lot faster than the WROVER model. for some reason i also had to reboot it twice after it flashed.

// Select camera model
