No, I've done it with a cut down image via the Gargoyle interface. It did work for 1.5.9, I assume it will work for 1.5.10. You just "upgrade" to the stock firmware but it's not the stock from TP-Link, it's that file but a first section of the file cut off, so it's smaller.

I Reverted from Openwrt Back to original Firmware with a cutted firmware,this is a must, use a cutted firmware to avoid bricks.


I suppose that Gargoyle the same basis as Openwrt is and this way i can revert back using the same method using the cutted firmware?

Am i right?


Thank you

I found this to be so. From memory, check the link here http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wdr4300

Thank you pmerrill

Yes this method works with Openwrt should work on Gargoyle too.

So the difference betwen Gargoyle and Openwrt is basically some improvements and another GUI ?

Right?

Tnx

A good GUI though I think there are some patches here and there, it's not just the overlayed gui, from memory.
