 +With the TL-WR842ND router, there is a catch: the stock firmware is obtained from the OEM: http://www.tplink.com/en/support/download/?model=TL-WDR3500
 +
 +  * in case the file name of this firmware file does not contain the word **//"boot"//** in it, you can simply revert back to original firmware
 +  * in case the file name of this firmware file does contain the word **//"boot"//** in it, you need to cut off parts of the image file //before// flashing it:
 +
 +
 +An example of an image file with the word "boot" in it is ''wdr3500nv1_en_3_13_26_up(130129).bin''.
 +
 +Cut the first 0x20200 (that is 131,584 = 257*512) Bytes from original firmware:
 +<code>
 +dd if=orig.bin of=tplink.bin skip=257 bs=512
 +</code>
 +
 +You should transfer the firmeware image to the /tmp folder and revert back to original firmware (if availlable you can flash the firmware via the webinterface as well):
 +
 +Via the safer method using sysupgrade:
 +<code>
 +sysupgrade /tmp/tplink.bin
 +</code>
 +
 +Or you use the mtd method:
 +<code>
 +mtd -r write /tmp/tplink.bin firmware
 +</code>
 +
 +
 +OEM TP-Link firmware for the TL-WDR3500 with the **//boot part removed//** to revert to the original OEM firmware:
 +  * TL-WDR3500 **//V1//** [[http://q.gs/6giYu|TL-WDR3500-V1-stripped.zip]]
