revert back to stock

Hi all,

 

I succesfully installed last LEDE on my R8000, but now I cannot revert to stock firmware:

 

I tried only via web gui, using dd-wrt images from this website or from stock firmwares of netgear, but I think something with the format could be wrong (every time I got back to lede after reboot).

 

What can I do to revert to original stock firmware?

 

As of now, the router is working and not bricked

Ok, I found a solution at

Ok, I found a solution at least until the file that take the Tomato FW back to netgear stock for the R8000 can be uncovered or found wherever it is on the internet. 

1. you will need to download the following files http://tomato.groov.pl/download/K26ARM7/Netgear%20R-series%20back%20to%2...

2. you will need to clear your NVRAM in Tomato and completely bring it back to defaults.

3. Load the DDWRT file found in the link in step one

4. Log into DDWRT with these creditials. admin: root  <>   password: admin

5. Immediatly flash the Netgear file found in the link in step 1

 

That should put you back to Netgear stock firmware. I tested it and it works and took me about 30 mins at the most.
