Cannot get back to Netgear firmware from Tomato

I have tried going straight to DD-WRT, but I get the same error.

 

process. DL firmare from Netgear, unzip.

 

Tomato, Admin/upgrade/select firmware from unzipped folder/Upgrade/Confirm?

PLEASE HELP!!!

PLEASE HELP!!!

I followed the instructions to install shibby tomato on R8000, however once I loaded the initial file - Router keep restarting!

I can ping to the router before its cycling the power, however cannot erase flash with TFTP2. Nothing helping - tried 30-30-30 and hitting buttons

I'm not a novice in this loading both tomato and dd-wrt for years

Even though i can ping 192.168.1.1 as my router - I cannot re-flash it with even stock firmware

Please help!

This link is for R6400, not r7000.   Is there an equivalent to the "back to genie" flash file for r7000 ?
