I am sending my x5000r to my friend for testing. I want to flash the OEM firmware back to the device before sending out.
I am following the instructions in https://openwrt.org/toh/totolink/x5000r#back_to_stock_firmware
Source 1. Poweroff / unplug power adapter from the router 2. Download the X5000R factory image from https://www.totolink.net/home/menu/detail/menu_listtpl/download/id/218/ids/36.html 3. Set your computer ethernet IP to 192.168.1.X, subnet 255.255.255.0 (X=your chosen ip number ranging from 2-254) 4. Press and hold reset button while turn on / plug power adapter to the router. Wait untill ALL LAN green LED turn on, then release the reset button. 5. Plug the LAN cable from your computer into LAN 1 port 6. Confirm that you can connect to the router by ping 192.168.1.1 from command prompt / terminal 7. If you get reply from 192.168.1.1, then open web browser, and type in the address column : 192.168.1.1 8. You will get the X5000R firmware update page, then choose the factory-firmware file from previously downloaded file 9. Wait untill the router finish flashing (the router will reboot by itself) : Blue led dan green LAN led will blinking 10. Revert the computer ethernet ip to automatic 11. Open in web browser : itotolink.net or 192.168.0.1 12. Finish, you should get Totolink web gui config page
The process hangs in step 9 - the device is showing all Green LED in the ports, the Browser is showing the "UPDATE IN PROGRESS" page.
But it never ends.
If I interrupt this process, I can boot it back to OpenWrt.
I have done so reset in OpenWrt and retry, with the same result.
Please advise how to go back to Stock firmware.
Thanks in advance!
