Archer C20 v4 - Factory Reset

Hi guys, I have problems resetting my Archer C20 v4 via Tftp. I want to reset it to default after it got bricked.
I followed these steps https://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?81462-How-to-recovery-the-router-when-you-bricked-it but I didn't work.
The lights keep flashing and I cant use it anymore.

Do I need a stripped firmware? Can anybody help to reset my router?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have access over serial?
Seems your product id and hw id is also corrupted (is read from the tp link header of you firmware).

Here is a thread with a similar tftp recovery issue:

Yes, you need a stripped firmware:

thank you so much, you really helped me with this. I have this exact router, but openvpn on openwrt doesn't really work and sometimes the wifi is disconnecting, so I wanted to restore it to the former firmware. Glad I found this!

Hello friend, would you happen to get a file for the (BR) C20 V4.O?

Can somebody reupload that modified archer C20 firmware please ?
