R7000 can't get back to stock FW

I've flashed the latest kong release ((07/24/14) kongac) to my Netgear Nighthawk r7000. but I would like to get back to stock firmware. But every firmware I now try to flash results in 'upgrade failed'. 

Even trying to flash an older dd-wrt version fails. I've tried resetting to factory defaults. I've tried flashing via 'ddup --flash-remote', but everything fails.

Is there any other way to get back to the stock firmware?

Due to a buffer bug in latest

Due to a buffer bug in latest gcc and musl libc this can happen on that build. Upcoming build fixes it. Usually trying a few times will work you can also try a different browser.

Anyways ddup should work, but it does not support netgear firmware yet. Thus first upgrade to latest release which should fix the buffer issue:

ddup --flash-latest
