I'm looking for a stripped Firmware for the Archer C7 V2.
Reason is, that I can transfer Firmware with TFTP to the bricked Router but than the router still stcks in bootloop.
I was lokking for the Firmware around but all ressoiurces i found are old and the URL's to them are false.
So I hope somewone from here can help me
Here's a link to a copy I downloaded before fredzombie's site went MIA. It's only for the Archer C7 V2, I'm not sure if it matters what country version the router has. Mine's a US version.
US Version will be fine
In case the links provided in this thread becomes dead, here is the procedure to do your own stripped version of the firmware (the dd part of the operations):
dd if="downloaded_firmware.bin" of="stripped_firmware.bin" skip=257 bs=512
You can confirm that you've done a correct job by downloading the file
ArcherC7v2_en_3_14_2_up_boot(150304).bin from TP-Link, applying the procedure and compare the MD5 checksums after the stripping that should be
398e1fcdd72baedd475c4048b1f359c0. So it would be:
dd if="ArcherC7v2_en_3_14_2_up_boot(150304).bin" of="Archer-C7-V2-FW0.0.3-stripped.bin" skip=257 bs=512
I've just tested it, it gives the same results.
