#19960 new defect

Archer C7 stock firmware does not accept 15.05-rc2 upgrade image.

Reported by: fredrik.ohrn@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: ar71xx Cc:


Attempting to install openwrt-15.05-rc2-ar71xx-generic-archer-c7-v2-squashfs-factory.bin on a TP-Link Archer C7 v2 via the stock upgrade firmware web page shows the rather opaque message "Please choose a file to upgrade!".

The 14.07 image (openwrt-ar71xx-generic-archer-c7-v2-squashfs-factory.bin) installed without issue.

Stock firmware version was 3.13.34 Build 131217 Rel.60903n.

It's most likely this:

"Note: The Archer C7 V2.0's web interface does not accept the Chaos Calmer RC1 .bin file unless you rename it to something with less dots; like openwrtCC.bin. "

I see, didn't notice that suggestion on the wiki.

Since I'm already up and running on OpenWRT now I can't give it another try to verify that the filename was the problem.
