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?

Fresh tomato has new init

Fresh tomato has new init files that should correct this problem. You should be able to flash ddwrt or shibby tomato after flashing the init.
