R8000 - Endless loop after installing Advanced Tomato 3.5-140

Hello All,

I was using Tomato and my router had to be rebooted every 24h or so. Besides, it wasn't reaching the full spped of my internet. Then I decided to flash Advanced Tomato (3.5-140). First I reversed to factory firmware (latest version) w/o any problem. I tested internet speed and it reach the full download I have contracted. Then I followed the instructions to flash the basic AT firmware, which worked fine. The last step was to flash AIO 3.5-140 Adv.Tomato. After I did it, the router entered in an endless reboot. It's looping. I just can't access anything in it. I tried a hard reset, but it still keeps rebooting.

I need help to understand what happened and how to fix it.

Thanks in advance,

Paulo

Same problem. I just don't know where the code goes to erase nvram when the router is unresponsive. Just a continuous series of lights.

You will have to TFTP the

You will have to TFTP the stock netgear firmware to the router during the boot process. If you need the exact procedure to do this let me know and i can walk you though it.

I have advanced tomato on my

I have advanced tomato on my R8000, and have biiunced between stock and 140 firmware about 60 times over the months troubleshooting bugs in the stock. Never had a problem. Let me ask, did you do a 30/30/30 reset prior to each firmware flash? Did you let it boot up for a few minutes without touching after the flash and then 30/30/30 again? Have you set you computer, as the only thing connected to the router, to a 192.168.1.2 with a 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.1.1 default, and pinged the router continuosly as it powers up? If you see a ttl of 100 you have hope! (Thats the tftp upload window... 4 to 5 seconds)

In my humble opinion, Most of us are Idiots at least most of our lives. Just every once in a while, somebody, somewhere, has a good idea, and maybe they share it before they forget it. Or maybe they sneeze....
