r6400v1 bad flash using wrong back-to-ofw version

Hi All,

After a weekend of bricking, un-bricking and re-unbricking I think i've just shot myself royally in the foot...

Basically, I wanted to get to stock so used the back-to-ofw images available, except that stupidly, instead of selecting the r6400-to-ofw .trx file, i chose the R7000-to-ofw and it should got on with it, rebooted and then magically it came up with the R7000 firmware.. only then did i realise my error.

I was able to flash back to a lower version of the actual r6400 but now the router is behaving weirdly, it would re-flash and any chk i select in the stock UI reports "

This firmware file is incorrect! Please get the firmware file again and make sure it is the correct firmware for this product.
 

I can't get the TFTP method to work and all MAC addresses in the UI now report as 00:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF for all interfaces..

Does anyone have a fixed image that has the model check removed as I suspect that may one method to override the checks stopping the flash..

Or have I lost my router forever and can bin it?

TIA

A
