TP-Link Archer C6 v2 (EU) - How to flash without using OEM GUI

#1

How to flash openwrt without using OEM GUI...The previous flash of the snapshot (http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/ath79/generic/openwrt-ath79-generic-tplink_archer-c6-v2-squashfs-factory.bin) bricked the router...Is there a safe way to flash the router or any standard measures that has to be taken care ?

Flash instruction using tftp recovery:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the LAN ports of the router
  2. Set the computer IP to 192.168.0.66
  3. Start a tftp server with the OpenWrt factory image in the
    tftp root directory renamed to ArcherC6v2_tp_recovery.bin.
  4. Connect power cable to router, press and hold the reset
    button and turn the router on
  5. Keep the reset button pressed until the WPS LED lights up
  6. Wait ~150 seconds to complete flashing
