Title: Downgrade TP-Link Archer C7 V2 to OEM from DD-WRT
Post by: FPSanarchy on October 14, 2019, 01:39:53 pm
I have had problems, stock firmware not working from webpage, and the stripped firmware too!
Here how I solved it..

https://www.friedzombie.com/tplink-stripped-firmware/download.php?d=Archer-C7-V2
i renamed the bin to stripped.bin

I put stripped.bin into /tmp/ from WinSCP (192.168.1.1 with root and the pass you choose)
then in Putty connect to SSH and run these commands:

I was told not to use mtd -r write as it bricked someones Archer C7.. but I did anyway, and it worked!
