Download stock image for your device, and compare with EU image: https://openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/archer_c20_v5#create_factory_image

how to do? Can you guide me please?

Google compare binary files.

thank you. i already install it.

Installed what?

I have checked, bootloaders for EU, and US stock images are identical. You can try to use manual from OpenWRT site: TP-Link image: tpl.bin
OpenWrt sysupgrade image: owrt.bin

 > dd if=tpl.bin of=boot.bin bs=131584 count=1
 > cat owrt.bin >> boot.bin

Can you please tell how you install openwrt in Archer C20 v5(US) model?? I tried to follow EU model guide but ended with broken router where only power and internet led lights up.

Today I have successfully installed OpenWRT on Archer C20 V5.1 US.

It was safe to follow the instructions for the EU v5 here: https://openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/archer_c20_v5 because the EU/US firmware checksums do match perfectly (Archer C20(EU)_V5_201214.zip
Archer C20(US)_V5_201214.zip)

Warning: don't forget to concatenate the bootloader part from the official tp-link image to openwrt image as per instructions before uploading it to the tp-link firmware update UI.
