Archer C7 V1 and V2 need ART dump for flash recovery

Have a couple of dead TP-Link AC1750 with missing Rom chips that I would like to use for build testing.
They were working before they got bricked, I'm told.

Archer C7v1 can go straight to the trash can, as its 5 GHz wireless is not supported and never will be.

Archer C7v2 "for free" are decent, but no flash makes them rather unattractive. Without the proper, device-specific ART, it's unlikely they will have good wireless performance. The ART is not generic for the instance of the device, but generally includes data related to measurement of that specific unit.
