Cannot Get in the R8000 after Shibby Initial Upload

Hi Guys,

I flashed Shibby "" on the R8000 but i cannot get in after all the combination of the passwords. 

No luck after trying the below paswords combination.


Read from other to get in via backdoor but no luck as well.  port 233 did not open up for me

Here are the steps

run router and wait for 2-3 minutes
push and hold wifi on/off button for 25 secs.
use telnet on port 233 to and log in to router without password (cannot get pass this step
run command: nvram get http_username (use as username)
run command: nvram get http_passwd (use as password)
when you log in to tomato remember to erase nvram
then flash with the full tomato version

Thanks in advance for the support

It's usually root as the username.  Sounds like you changed it.

Most routers, however, are usually admin/password admin/admin  admin/ no password, etc.  Newer routers have the option to use an e-mail as the user if you setup an account during initial setup or link the router to that account through their phone app or website utility or on the router itself.
