ASUS RT-AC58U returning to stock


I tried to return to stock firmware however none of provided solutions work.

Fristly I followed but after step 6 router is not in recovery/rescue mode, so I can't execute step 7 and 8, because restoration tools can't see router that is not in recovery mode. Interesting thing is that after step 6 router is rebooting, but it's booting up back immediately to normal OpenWRT system.

I tried as well and it shows:

However router after restart boots back to OpenWRT.

Any ideas how to get original firmware?

Thanks in advance!

I've tried exactly the same things, with exactly the same results.

After finding this issue:

I flashed the latest 21.02.x firmware.

The documented "Returning to stock" process then worked as expected.
