I have tried each method in this thread but I can't still install the DD-WRT firmware.
Like few post above, I first click restore factory default then I have successfully installed the tplink firmware (120523) but then when I tried to install a old DD-WRT firmware (eg: 19342) it gave the error like everyone get.

still getting the same error, wath exact file I need to "unlock" dd-wrt flashing??
The file is called exactly 3220-factory-to-ddwrt.bin
This is DD-WRT v24-sp2 (06/08/12) std - build 19342
I got that file from this site last year but for some reason can't locate it anymore. I have it on my PC it's almost 4 MB
This is my first posting:
I'm looking for help to obtain the proper files like "factory-to-DD_WRT.bin" and procedure, as I have had no success - explained below.
I live in Brazil and my Tp-Link TL-MR3220 ver.1.2 was purchased in Dec/2011. This model is still being sold here (as 2017, frequently ver 2.x), mostly due to its competitive price for a 3G/3.75G dual WAN fail-over feature.
I have done official firmware upgrade on MR3220: FW# 121123.
More recently decided to try DD-WRT on it, planning to use it as AP and to learn more about network & routing.
After reading this Topic, tried FW migration, but got that same error message
"Error code: 18005 Upgrade unsuccessfully Because the version of the upgraded file was incorrect. Please check the file name."
Tentavilely I downgraded it to FW#120523, cleared NVRAM by 30/30/30 reset, all have failed so far. Also downloaded referred "Archivio.zip" and contained files didn't work either.
Due to longer time span (27 months) since last post in this topic, I believe some links might be dead, as I can't find a file that had exactly the mentioned name.
Also, as mentioned:
Hey guys, I'm unfortunately having the same issue. Error code 18005 when installing factory-to-ddwrt.bin
I have tried every single solution in this thread without success.
I tried all the different stock versions from TP-Link and every single bin from all folders since 2012.
Any other solutions you guys can think of?
TP-Link MR3220 V1
First downgrade to this TP-Link official firmware..

I have the exact same need as EJE and markstevens. This is such a useful thread, but all the vital links are now dead. Can Spidex or nfredrik or sohaib17 or TheMafioso or haydent or gialandra please look to see if they can still find the reset file 3220-factory-to-ddwrt.bin that they once downloaded on their local drive? The file is not on the internet anymore. If you still can get hold of a copy, please try and make it available to others or try and send it directly to me and I will publish it. The forum Personal Message feature takes attachments, but I'm not sure if it will allow 4 MB.
Puhleeeeaaaase! The community will be soooo thankful.
