Looking for Firmware Stock (stripped) TL-WA850RE v1

I'm looking for the Firmware Stock (stripped) TL-WA850RE v1 file. All the links I've checked are not working anymore. Someone who has the file saved on PC or elsewhere? Thanks!

The https://openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wa850re states what should be stripped, and how much ?

I know this page well. I stripped by my own but device says "The uploaded image file does not contain a supported format. Make sure that you choose the generic image format for your platform." I found that video https://youtu.be/ZBr8h0vMWvc The guy has the openwrt files and the one Im looking for. But his links in the description are also unavailable.

what's the current state of the unit ?

Do you have openwrt running, or stock FW?

Model TP-Link TL-WA850RE v1
Firmware Version OpenWrt Barrier Breaker r39161 / LuCI Trunk (svn-r9945)
Kernel Version 3.10.24

Running sysupgrade from ssh might be an option, since it can be forced.
But I don't know if that's actually supported, for going back to stock :confused:
Might brick your device.

TP-Link usually have TFTP enabled uboot, so that's another option to look into.
Seems undocumented though.

Any special reson for going back, there are 19.07 images for your unit at:

I want to sell it but I'm stuck with going to the original firmware... :confused:


Well, you could try upgrading, since the new version might me more forgiving when it comes to
the file format, but it's a gamble.
