Hello, how can I revert my TL-MR3220 V2 to stock firmware? I have tried downloading the firmware from TP-Link website and using the Upgrade tab in DD-WRT config but it doesn't work. Can't find a revert to stock on the router's page on DD-WRT website. Please help

Edited- Bad avice to use V1 on V2...

The V2, from what I can tell, has a completely different SoC.

V2=Atheros AR9331
V1=Atheros AR7241

The V1 revert file in the sticky Won't work.

All of the phpBB version info is gone from the pages as they have been tweaked, but considering the copyright dates at the bottom, I kinda doubt it's any version that is recent. Which is why we still get all the damn spam bots.

Yes, it's a 20 year old phpbb2.

The current version is 3.2.7
