U-boot: Unknown image type after flashing Linksys EA7500

After following the guide for my router I can't get it to boot, all I get is
Loading from nand0, offset 0xf80000 ** Unknown image type. I tried to flash back my original firmware but that gives me this error:
Automatic boot of image at addr 0x42000000 ... Wrong Image Format for tftp command ERROR: can't get kernel image!
Here is my serial log, starting with flashing the openwrt image, and then trying to flash the original firmware after that fails:https://gist.github.com/ZachAR3/04d7259b4243763e7649476ac2209d57

which image was this, specifically ?


It could be related to the kernel partition size issue, with recent openwrt versions, try installing an older release 1st.

Ok, I'm assuming the squasfs factory and not the initramfs-uiimage

yes, the factory.

A bit of different issue now. It get's hung at ipq_nand failed to allocate memory and if I reboot it in this state it goes back to either read errors or unbootable kernel:

Any ideas?
