Issues transferring stock image to Zyxel M1


I installed openwrt on M1 and now I want to return to the original software, but I cannot assign files with winscp, I get the error in the picture

You cannot upload files to read-only filesystem. If you paid attention to wiki page you need to copy file to /tmp - a ramdisk.

i cant do with putty can you help me

Upload with SCP to /tmp?

Im getting error i cant write tmp folder

no, that's not the errors you're getting.


No way, /rom is readonly fileseystem that comes from sysupgrade squashfs, it has empty directories as placehoders for real directories on a running system.

I can't download files with putty even though I have internet, there is an error here

so far there's no proof of any error there ...

im trying to do this step but i cant i cant write this file there is nothing inside tmp folder

solved the problem the tmp file was empty, I reinstalled openwrt and now it is full and I can upload files to it


you tried to write it to the wrong folder, something @brada4 pointed out to you, and your router doesn't want to DL the file (for whatever reason), there's no proof of any issues writing any file.
