R7000P connect telnet and change region

I bought used R7000P and want to change region from USA to EU. 
I'm using Netgear firmware.

I googled and as I understand I need to make some "telnetenable" and after it I'll be able to send commands via telnet to change region.

Can someone tell me where to start? What should I do?

just reply to my question as

just reply to my question as I find the solution.
Source instruction is here https://openwrt.org/toh/netgear/telnet.console?s[]=netgear&s[]=telnet

1. Rollback to some older firmware. I used R7000P-V1.0.0.58_1.0.50.chk
Don't worry, download firmware from NETGEAR website and upload to Router via web admin console. It notify you that you installing older version, but it works well.
Also I do not reset settings at all... As I don't plan to use old firmware longer than few minutes.

2. after firmware rollback router restarts, detects internet, restarts again... takes about 3 minutes.

3. download the telnetenable2 for Windows 10 http://www.mediafire.com/file/tcen54n6k66yu58/telnetenable2.zip and unpack

4. get the MAC address of your router: type in WIN terminal
arp -a

5. remove - from MAC and make it in upper case

6. unpack telnetenable2 with the command (put username and password that you are set for web console:
telnetenable2.exe CC40D0xxx7F8 admin password

output should be:

creating pkt...
sending pkt...

7. connect with telnet. I use putty:
set host, select connecetion type telnet and press OPEN

8. in telnet console write
burnsku 0x002

it makes Router WorldWide.

9. Restart Router. Go to WiFi settings, select region, save it.

10. Update to the latest Firmware and use it.
