Buffalo WZR-600DHP Revert from community DD-WRT to Gargoyle

Postby oyeyemi » Wed Oct 09, 2019 11:52 am

Hello,
I just purchased Buffalo WZR-600DHP router that comes with a community DDWRT firmware. I have tried several methods i found on Google to at least flash back to factory firmware and then flash to Gargoyle but unsuccessful.
Please, someone help me on how to flash Gargoyle on Buffalo WZR-600DHP DDWRT Community version.
Thanking you in advance.

It's nothing simple. Just such an idea :idea: . You will need to do this via tftp.
Look here:
https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/ ... _TFTP_Info
https://openwrt.org/toh/buffalo/wzr-600 ... ftp_method

For tftp you will need an image for tftp mode: https://www.gargoyle-router.com/downloa ... s-tftp.bin

After reflash you will use sysupgrade image.

Thank you so much Mr Roman.
Actually, i do not find it hard following all the procedures.
The problem i have is getting the TFTP to "PUT" the bin file on the router. It keeps timing out. I am using Ubuntu 18.04.
Also, "sudo arp -s 192.168.11.1 02:aa:bb:cc:dd:20" keeps giving me error : SIOCSARP: Network is unreachable.

Thank you sir.

:idea: If you already have DD-WRT installed, you can try this procedure using the sysupgrade image: https://openwrt.org/toh/buffalo/wzr-600 ... ell_method

For sysupgrade image is here: https://www.gargoyle-router.com/downloa ... pgrade.bin

EDIT:
and if your router is connected to the Internet with DD-WRT, you can do the following via ssh:

Code: Select all

wget http://www.gargoyle-router.com/downloads/images/ar71xx/gargoyle_1.11.0-ar71xx-generic-wzr-600dhp-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin -O /tmp/wzr-600dhp-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
mtd -r write /tmp/wzr-600dhp-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin linux
