Partial initial flash

Not sure how but I am stuck a the initial tomato firmware with no options to go further.



Running Advanced Tomato, flashed back to ofw (all is well), upgraded genie then flashed tomato-R7000-initial.chk

Now i am stuck.  I can telnet and winscp but can not successfully tftp or tftp2 (from netgear site).  Can I manually send the firmware over via WinSCP and continue somehow?  



I can't post images .... so this is the best I can do. The config page is clickable but nothing can be done Save/Cancel.  



!! Attention !!

Was able to SCP the R7000

Was able to SCP the R7000-back-to-ofw.trx and flash via telnet

mtd-write2 R7000-back-to-ofw.trx linux <return>

mtd-erase2 nvram <return>

reboot <return>

go into Genie, clear defaults then start process of Tomato install from scratch.  Absolutely NO luck with tftp
