Netgear Wndr3800 Wont Upload Ddwrt Img “Firmware Upgrade Failed. Please Check Your File”

Posted: Sat Mar 14, 2020 13:36   Post subject: R7000 won’t accept any firmware after flashing back to stock

Reply with quote
Here is my issue:
I was running the last XWRT Vortex, 384.15, and flashed back to stock firmware, apparently I flashed the wrong version I was supposed to flash, they provide two, R7000-V1.0.three.80_1.ane.38.zip and R7000-V1.0.9.26_10.2.31.zip, I flashed the older 1 since I would update it correct afterward. The flash went fine, the router boots and works fine, merely at present when I try to upload Any firmware (be it stock, or dd-wrt from stock, tomato, etc) I receive this bulletin:

“This firmware file is incorrect! Please get the firmware file over again and make certain it is the right firmware for this production.”

After some googling I got to nmrpflash, got it working, but fifty-fifty using it the router refuses to flash, upload goes fine, and and so:

“OK

Waiting for remote to reply.

Ignoring extra upload asking.

Ignoring extra upload request.

Ignoring extra upload request.

Ignoring extra upload request.

Received configuration request from 68:fd:3a:47:dd:85.

Sending configuration: 10.164.183.252/24.

Timeout while waiting for TFTP_UL_REQ.”

I’ve opened a github ticket to see if at that place is anything the developer can practice:

https://github.com/jclehner/nmrpflash/bug/29

There were two past tickets openened that were solved by a modded firmware he provided with an edited firmware version handle, but my router still refuses to flash this firmware he provided.

Any ideas on how to solve this? Next step is going the TTL USB flashing way… I will have to buy a cable, and I rather don’t.

Any help is apreciated, thanks for the attending.

I tin’t get it to accept any TFTP plan because it isn’t bricked, and it doesn’t take whatever way other than be bricked to get to recovery mode, not that I constitute out at least, and I tried… Nmrpflash apparently is able it to get into recovery mode and use TFTP, but it’s the just way I got into this mode and when it goes into TFTP upload information technology locks out access to any program, and so I can’t switch during use (using nmrpflash to get to recovery style and and then flash a firmware using another TFTP programme). I’m using the appropriate firmware, several options, it will not take any.

About XWRT fucking my CFE, I also bumped into this during searches, but since I had the terminal version installed, I think this doesn’t apply to this item case

just an FYI, xVortex says he corrected the corruption causing firmware.

If yous want to go back to NG it should work and allow y’all to revert similar normal.

Anyway, is there any way to flash a cfe with nmrpflash or something that doesn’t requere TFTP or a usb ttl cable? Information technology might exist worth a try.

Commonly every Netgear router tin can be ready into TFTP fashion unless the CFE is altered.

Power off

press and agree reset push button

Power on while holding the reset button

Lite is orangish

When it starting time flashing white after about 15 seconds release reset push and start uploading

That is how I do it with several Netgear routers (R6400, R7000, R7800)

If you lot tin not gear up the router into TFTP way your CFE is screwed and you can only use serial

Edit: you have to utilise a relative new DDWRT version with update build numbers

I tried the last ones, none are accustomed.

Past belongings resetting button my router never goes into recovery, it just perpetually reboots, it does articulate the settings, but that’south all.

When using nmrpflash I can go information technology to recovery mode, but it’s simply detected within it, it stays with a glowing orangish light on power (no blinking) and the lan port lite is white blinking with activity when upload is happening. What I’k thinking is, if the router doesn’t take to flash any images subsequently nmrpflash uploads it, even if I got tftp mode working, why would it accept it then? Does it have any difference?

Skipped. Okay, sounds to me like yous’re using the router database and not the forum build release threads for firmware image information.

I hateful the specific version he mentioned, I doubt at that place is something special with it, only it was worth a try.

I already tried the last two of 2020 builds.

I just bought a ttl usb cablevision online now, I have no hope at this bespeak of any other fashion working.

The Vortex CFE I know of puts the asus CFE mini webserver on your router. Did you even try that method of flashing firmware? The build number egc mentioned is a commit, non a release. Y’all should exist able to flash
http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/R7000/R7000-V1.0.9.64_10.two.64.zip
or
http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/R7000/R7000-V1.0.9.60_10.ii.60.zip
and and so flash DD unless the Vortex CFE is preventing it.

How would I go through this cfe mini webserver option? By using asus firmware restoration tool? If then, that didn’t work by the type of recovery mode nmrpflash is putting it into, asus tool says “the wireless router is non in rescue manner”.

I tried both firmwares linked, flashing not allowed, same as all the ones I tried.

edit: Ok, I’ve googled on how to utilise cfe webserver and it would merely exist acessible on the browser by entering the router IP, it doesn’t work here.

Then your options are to either flash the stock CFE or flash FreshTomato.

If you take the stock R7000 cfe, you should be able to practise information technology via ssh / telnet but like you would to wink the Vortex CFE, only without modifying the mac addresses. You simply demand to either edit the shell script or change the cfe bin file name to the 1 in the shell script.

You should be able to flash FreshTomato from XWRT-Vortex without an issue. I have not modified my R7000 cfe, merely I have the XWRT-Vortex CFE files to practice it.

One thing to note, if you lot flashed a most contempo stock firmware past the ones I linked, your firmware may be locked and require serial flash recovery.
