How to restore TP Link Archer C7 back to stock firmware?

I have decided that LEDE is not for me and i would like to try another firmware, but if i understand right you need to go back to the default router firmware first?

If you have the v1 or v2, you can download and flash a stripped version of the TP-Link firmware from FriedZombie...

Otherwise, use TFTP.

Even though your router is not “bricked”, this tutorial works for reverting to stock as well…

Rename the stock firmware file ArcherC7vx_tp_recovery.bin, where x is the version number.
