"Demo mode" is not a problem, so not something to "solve". It is an intended mode of operation. That said, yes, you can flash "normal"/"customer" firmware for K3/K4/K5. But there is no way to put a KPW into USB downloader mode, so this wouldn't work for the KPW. Only option might be serial connection, but I'm not aware of a how-to description.
I completely agree with hawhill. A *DEMO* device is a device which Amazon made available for demonstration purposes, not for ordinary use.

If you want to flash one of these devices with the regular firmware: get your hands dirty and put together the clues available in this forum, but don't expect any further support. We're not gonna do it for you.
