You'll need the kmod-mtd-rw package.

Thanks for reply,

Can you tell me exactly what is the Steps? I'm beginner

I'm Really Confuse... Can not roll back to OpenWRT

did you actually read the post I linked to ?

It's your router, running some 3rd party firmware.
Ask the people over at pcwrt, it's their FW you're running.

I Mentioned them here. but no one replied to this ticket.
Again: @abej

This is a forum, not github, and the ticket should be with pcwrt, since you're not running openwrt, yet.

Another option is to figure out how to return to stock.

cd /etc

mtd -r /openwrt.bin OS1

I was build this guide for easy installion

ask pcWRT, we're not supporting it.

Please ask the pcwrt maintainers for help. This forum is for OpenWrt.
