ESPHome update 2024.5.0 has stopped my device from working

Since the ESPHome update 2024.5.0 my D1Mini is not working any more (esp8266, board: d1_mini) I cannot reach the device via WLAN anymore.
Connection via USB and esphome-flasher-1.4.0 shows an exception:

With the ESPHome version 2024.4.1 I had no problems.
Is it somehow possible to put pack temporary the old ESPHome version (without using a complete Homeassistant backup) and to compile a bin file with this version?

Check this topic: Legacy ESPHome versions add-on
As well You can install any version of ESPHome on Windows PC.

Great, worked perfectly. Exactly what I was looking for.
I had already made a plan to create a manual download version for each device before every ESPHome update in the future. From now on I can create an old version at any time :o)

It is really disturbing that the version 2024.5.x causes massive problems to complete failures, which are known at Github and yet new versions appear without these bugs being fixed. It can’t be true that you have to help yourself with workarounds.
