well I think you can force downgrade in the same way (--force-downgrade) but best wait until someone with more knowledge gets involved.

see this link:

https://github.com/openwrt/luci/issues/2231

Maybe this will work?

service rpcd restart

well if it were me I would give it a reboot. The openwrt firmware is installed so its not going to brick it imo but that has to be your decision Smile

If you are feeling brave you could always try to install dd-wrt from SSH Smile

This is not something I did (but did not need to try)

Something like:

cd /tmp

Then:

For Kong (or replace with location of normal bs build):
wget http://www.desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/dd-wrt.K3_R8000.chk


Then:
mtd -r write /tmp/dd-wrt.K3_R8000.chk linux

Give it 10 minutes or so and reboot.

<edit>link fixed></edit>

That fails too...

root@OpenWrt:/tmp# mtd -r write /tmp/dd-wrt.K3_R8000.chk linux
Could not open mtd device: linux
Can't open device for writing!

The wiki says to use the linux partition but NOT to use mtd:

https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Installation

write {firmware} linux
