I received my second Archer C7 but it is V3. Can V2 firmware run on C7 V3?

Yes, I saw that and it does not answer my question. I am in USA and bought from Amazon US so I assume my V3 is US version. If I try to install DD-WRT V2 on this it will check firmware header and back out if not compatible without bricking?

I haven't tried personally. I've only worked with v2 international versions. Based on info about the US and IL versions though, the stock firmware rejects an upgrade if the header doesn't match.

What does "IL" stand for? Int'l License? Label has (US) on bottom so US.

And would the Revert To Factory Firmware V2 file work if the V2 firmware works?

I wonder if any one has noticed I have an archer c5 v1.2 = archer c7 v2 in the for sale section for $40. Been there a week almost. I think. Lol
