Default Tomato Password not accepted after flashing.

I flashed my stock R7000 with the "tomato-R7000-initial.chk" file from shibby and upon booting back up I can not login in to the router's admin settings using the supposed default login/password of admin/admin. I did some searching and found others who had the same issue and were able to access it with other login/password combinations but none of those I've found have been successful either. Thus far I've tried...

admin/admin

admin/root

root/admin

root/root

admin/password

root/password

I've also tried the previous password that was set prior to flashing, did not work.

Attempts to reset the router using any combination of the reset button and 30/30/30, 60/60/60, etc have no effect. I attempted to telnet into the router but I am receiving the same error, every permutation of the login/password fails to access the router.

What are my options at this point? I am effectively locked out of the router until I can figure out the login/password or reset it somehow.

After more searching I came

After more searching I came across this thread with instructions from Shibby on how to backdoor into the router bypassing the password.

https://www.myopenrouter.com/forum/r7000-bricked-flashed-dd-wrt-tomato-c...

Note that where Shibby said to input "nvram get http_password", the actual command was "nvram get http_passwd".

This returned a result of "@newdig" as my password, where that password came from is a mystery but that succesfully accessed the router.
