fmchc_python1300c reference design

I am trying to get the fmchc_python1300c reference design to work with Vivado 2016.4
Everything worked fine until I actually wanted to run the demo application on the board.
I used the JTAG cable to run the demo via SDK in with the debugger enabled. The problem I have is, that the program gets stuck in an infinite loop when executing the function "fmc_hdmi_cam_init"
I doesn't get past this point. The system just freezes.
I am using the System Debugger, because the GDB Debugger does not work with the error "no associated elf file".
I haven't tried booting from the SD-Card. I will try this and see if the problem also occurs.
Has anybody encountered this problem?
edit: The vanilla BOOT.bin also gets stuck after ouputting "FMC-HDMI-CAM Initialization ...".
It seems that this is the same behavior...
edit2: I am using the FMC Carrier Card V1. The reference design says that the FMC Carrier Card V2 is required. Is this a problem or is the design compatible with both carrier cards?
I already looked at the pin out of the fmc, and did not see any huge differences that might not make the design work...

thank you for your reply.

thank you for your reply. Unfortunately the link is no longer valid. Could you re-upload this version of the design so that I can test it?
Thank you and best regards

update on design

when I unplug the fmc camera board from the PicoZed Carrrier, the software does not freeze and runs without issues. Unfortunately, this is only a partial solution, since I cannot use the software because the camera is not connected to the fmc.
So the camera module is basically the problem...
