Netgear R700 wont flash

No matter what file i attempt tomato or dd-wrt i get the error message -1 this firmware is not compatible with your router. I have tried flashing with the orignal file 

R7000-V1.0.3.56_1.1.25.chk i get the same error message. 


Followed the instructions revert to factory default. Cleared my cache nothing works. 


Any help much appreciated

I am having this same problem

I am having this same problem trying to install Shibby Tomato and DD-WRT on a brand new Netgear R7000, does anyone have a solution? I also noticed you can't upload old version of the netgear firmware onto it either. Perhaps Netgear is blocking folks from uploading older firmware?
