You should start off by

You should start off by installing the Original firmware, found here : Firmware Version X.X.X.XX

Then install it, by a "firmware Upgrade" (make sure you reset your router to default settings befor installing!)

After Install, reset your router to default settings again, then Download : R7000-X.XX.AT-ARM-X.X-XXX-initial-64k.chk and R7000-AT-ARM-X.X-XXX-AIO-64K.trx

(Pick the newest one, 131 is newer than 130)

Install r7000-X-XX.AT-ARM-X.X-XXX-inital-64k.chk 1st by a "firmware upgrade"

Then install r7000-AT-ARM-X.X-XXX-AIO-64K.trx 2ed by "firmware upgrade"

then reset your routers setting back to default, dont worry the wifi will come back,

 

I tried DD-WRT Kong Mod build but some devices could not see the 5ghz band of my wifi, so i then flashed revision 27261 which was even worse, made my router keep rebooting, evem though it fixed the 5ghz wifi problem, this is why I recommend Tomato by shibby to everyone, as it just works with out any of the major bugs found in the DD-WRT builds

I am not responsible for this guide turning your router in to a brick, if that does happen enlightened which it shouldn't

I tried DD-WRT, and it's much

I tried DD-WRT, and it's much better than Tomato firmware now, it's
more stable, it's been running for 11 days now, and i'm loving it, how
the tables have turned,

 

Download Newest Release of DD-WRT Kong Mod from here :

do a 30/30/30 after each and every update

I have currently an uptime of 29 days on Tomato Shibby. What exactly is not stable in Tomato? Everything works as expected for the things I use
