hi,

I have the R7800 with dd wrt build from February 20 and yes Ive read on the forum but it seems that no one has a same advice on how to come back to netgear firmware, is it possible to just uopload the netgear image in the GUI interface and thats it?

thanks

I thought this was where the webrevert file collection was:

Sticky: Files for reverting from DD-WRT to STOCK FIRMWARE

I've never reverted a custom firmware save and except during serial recovery. Why would you want to?

Kong's Read me file wrote:
Flashing Process.

Through recovery mode:

In order to flash kong openwrt build from dd-wrt.
Press reset button and hold it, power on and wait until power led
flashes white. Now you can use a tftp client to push the
<model>-factory.img to the router. The unit will reboot by itself
and you should see openwrt webif.

Through Webif:

In order to flash kong openwrt from oem firmware, use oem
update page and upload <model>-factory.img

In order to update openwrt use <model>-sysupgrade.bin and flash via openwrt
update page.


No need to go to stock.

You never specified that you wanted to flash Kong OpenWRT in your OP. Please re-read the Readme file that Per Yngve Berg quoted. Read it again. Read it one more time. Read it until you answer your own question .... (Yes).

In my signature a link to The R7800 install guide.
It is also a sticky thread in this forum.

Surely there is a paragraph about going back to stock Wink

Yes. Why wouldn't you be able to? And why flash back to stock if you're going to flash OpenWRT? Or are you going to flash OpenWRT? Tell us what the details are, bud. I'm confused. It's like following a bad ADD trip.

Well, you should've stated the entire scenario in your OP instead of being indirect. It would be less involved to flash from DD-WRT, but do whatever you wish. This isn't the OpenWRT forum, anyway.
